We are implementing BW for a client. In the HR component, instead of writing the usual custom extractors to get Quota, Absense and Time related data I would like to use the standard extractors: 0HR_PT_1, 0HR_PT_2 and 0HR_PT_3.
I know that we need to set up the Reporting Time Types, but to do this we need to get a HR Consultant in and none of the ones (6 now) have no experience in setting these up. The lowest quote we have had is 10 days work.
The other option is to run the transactions PDW1 and PDW2, but again I have found very little information on these again I have not found any consultants who have actually run them.
My questions is:
1) Has anybody run the transactions PDW1 and PDW2,and knows if they work, are there any downsides, and general thoughts on using either of these.
Thank you for your time and thoughts
