change counting of vacation days

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out how to change the way SAP counts vacation days. Until now, our system has been configured to count Saturdays as vacation days even though our work week is only 5 days long. For example, an employee wants to use 12 of his vacation days and he can only take 2 calendar weeks, instead of 2 weeks and 2 more working days, because SAP counts Saturdays as working days, but only for vacation. Now, the law has changed, and Saturdays shouldn't be counted as vacation days. I haven't been able to find a table where I can change that counting rule from 6 days to 5 days. Can anyone please help me?

Thanks in Advance,

Dunja

    This is probably configured in the counting rule assigned to the absence type. Check the below settings in SPRO:

    1) Time management - Time data recording & administration- Absences - Absence catalog - Absence counting - Assign counting rules to absence types

    In this step, select the entry applicable to the absence type & Pers.subarea grouping. Click on details. Note the number of the counting rule.

    2) Time management - Time data recording & administration- Absences - Absence catalog - Absence counting - rules for absence counting(new)- define counting rules

    In this step, select the entry applicable to the ES grouping, PS grouping & the counting rule assigned in step 1. Click on details.


    Check if 'Saturday' has been selected in the Conditions for current day section. If yes, deselect it.
