BI HR Extraction --- Issue in DATE selection --- need help.

Hi Experts,

I am Creating a HR View based on Tables ( PA0001, PA0002, PA0008, PA0009, PA0014 ) .

In every Table I have Start Date ( BEGDA ) and End Date ( ENDDA )

For Example : I have a employee 20117, for this employee I have start date and end date in all tables.

Table -

Start Date -
End Date

PA0001 -- 01.01.2002 -


PA0002 -- 01.01.2002 -


PA0008 -- 01.01.2002 -


PA0008 -- 01.02.2003 -


PA0008 -- 01.02.2005 -


PA0009 -- 01.01.2002 -


PA0009 -- 01.06.2005 -


PA0014 -- 01.01.2002 -


In PA0008 , His Basic Salary is Changed three times thatÂ’s the reason he has 3 records in the Table,

Same for PA0009, his Bank A/c No changed two times , he has two recordsÂ…

My Issue :


My user will see the report every Month, how I can get Month wise data.

Do I have to write any routine or which date I have to assign to 0calday.

For Ex: if I want to see JAN 2008 data, how this data I will get in the Report?

I appreciate your suggestions.

      Shouldn't it be Start Date <= 31.01.2008 End Date => 01.01.2008, because these are valid dates?

      But i see two problems

      if you have

      PA0001 -- 01.01.2008 -

      02.01.2008 A

      PA0001 -- 02.01.2008 -

      31.12.9999 B

      is A or B correct? But you want 0Calday, so this is not that importent. But do you want one row for every day from 02.01.2008 -


      the other problem is

      the valid dates do not need to be the same, so you can't join.

      PA0001 -- 01.01.2008 -

      31.12.9999 B

      PA0002 -- 03.12.2007 -

      31.12.9999 C

      PA0002 -- 02.01.2008 -

      31.12.9999 D

      in fact on the 01.01.2008 you should have BC and on the 02.01.2008 BD. But there is an abap statement, i don't remeber right now, that can do the valid date split and join for you.

      I believe your problem can not be solved with a simple view

      hopefully this will help you.

    Why don' t you load the data to an InfoObject with time dependent attributes, it handles the dates correctly. You can also report on an InfoObject (eg. 0EMPLOYEE).

    Kind regards,
