I don't think that there is any solution anymore (there used to be a program but SAP deactivated it since it was too dangerous).

I think you'll have to do the suppression through t-code pu01, one employee at a time.

To set the Payroll Control Record back, use t-code pa03 to look at it. Take note of the "Earliest retro acctg period", and then delete the Control Record. Then, recreate for Period 11-2017, making sure that you enter the same Earliest retro acctg period as before. When you'll validate it, it will be for Period 12-2017. If you've never done it before, always try it out in DEV or QAT before doing it in PRD.
