How to find retrocalculation of payroll

retro.pngHi Professionals,

I executed payroll of an employee for the month of Aug 2017 in simulation, but when i checked logs, it shows retro from the month of May 2017 is also executed and number of periods executed is 04. How can i identify which wagetype creates this retro effect?

Quick reply will be highly appreciated.

Thank you

    • If you have only executed a Payroll Simulation, then you need to re-execute it but with the "Display log" box checked, and drill down into that log to compare the recalculated results to the existing results.

      But to know what triggers the retroactive calculation, I would suggest that you execute the Audit Report (Program = RPUAUD00 or RPUAUD00_PNPCE) for that employee, and from the time Payroll was last executed up to today.

    Besides RPUAUD00, you can check the payroll log, check the DT table or country retro processing rule to confirm which wage type amount is changed in retro calculation.

    Normally country retro processing sub-schema is before net payment processing.

    At last , you can check whether there is /551 ~ /553 generated in RT. if there is no /551 ~ /553 generated ,which means there is no payment change for retro-period. If so , you can just ignore the retro calculation, because there is no impact on hr posting and FI side.

    If there is net payment difference generated, you have to check whether the difference is correct.

    You can check in the infotype 0003. In the field old calculation is the date that will start the retrocalculation for this employee.

    Other option is to see the image of the payroll of the employee. There the WG that retrocalculate will have something like ("Difference of the month xx") in his description.

    Personnally, I use the Wage Type Reporter (program = H99CWTR0) since it can show the variations and when they happened. You may have to play a little with the Selection Screen, but you should create at least one Program Variant to analyze the results in the current pay.

    Then, for an other type of analysis, you may want to create an other variant to analyze the variations of a WT over the year, and then an other variant to look at Hours instead of Amounts, and so on.
