Creating new report category in Abap HR

When I try and create a new custom report category, I get a message saying "Choose the key from the allowed namespace". I did use a Z report category (we do have Z report categories that have been created earlier by somebody else). It would be great if somebody could list the steps to create a new report category. By the way, I would just want to keep just the personnel number (PNPPERNR) in the selection option.

I did try using SM30 to create a new entry but got the same message as above.

Thanks.

    Unable to save the New entry via Report category in Attributes OR via SM30. The SAVE button gets grayed out? Would it have anything to do with permissions?

    By the way, I am trying to have the Payroll period and the Personnel number in the selection screen and I am using PNPCE LDB.

    Thanks.

    You can ignore the warning & create your report category with namespace Z*

    Go to table T599C via SM30 and create a new entry. when you key in ZXXX you will just get a warning. Ignore it and proceed further.

    You can use the Report category HRDKPRNR to meet your reqt.
