ESS CATS timesheet - template lines repeat when saving

Hi experts,

We have implemented CATS on SAP Portal and when you have a time entry template, and you save your time entries, the saved time is "pushed" down the timesheet by blank template lines. This happens only on the web Dynpro version (ECC does not happen) of the timesheet. If there is no template defined, everything works fine.

Is this a know bug? I am on the verge of raising a message with SAP, but was hoping someone here would have the solution.

Best Regards,

    you are on which release we have notes 1112545

    and 1017728 1143980

    also ensure that attributes like absence attendance type which are displayed should be set as input in CAC2


    Please ensure that all fields in CATS screen are set as input

    If you record an extra attribute than

    the one already saved with the Template, You are bound to get an

    Line Split. Please check if your user exit is defaulting any

    extra attribute or you are adding it during the recording

    of time or being defaulted using 0315 infotype

    Line split occurs when the Employee records time to

    a different attribute ie already available in the Template

    for him

    An example

    You need to ensure that the attributes are not changed

    ie new values defaulted using the exit, which are doing


    Your template has values : A B

    Your exit defaults : A B C >>> C added extra, line split!

    So ensure A B C are already saved as template. Makes sure your

    end users or the exit is not adding extra attribute to the recording


    This is what i am trying to explain if this is possible.

    • Ptex2000 is still in CATS, only when you use CAT6 it ll update HR system so as I said, you can leave at It is and it wont create any issues. I have seen many customer who don't transfer records from CATS to HR and leave as it is FUNC CATS_CHECK_PTEXDIR there is no exit for this to avoid this update, you ll have to go for modification
