HRESSAPPROVER table updates


Hi ESS/MSS Gurus,

Here is our scenario:

For Attendance/Absence Types other than Sick Leaves (with and without Pay), the Manager is the determined Approver

For Sick Leaves, it should be the Company Physician.

These requirements were setup in the workflow configuration (i.e. created separate workflows for Sick Leaves and for other Attendance/Absence Types)

The problem is, I have a sick leave request which is being sent to the employee's manager. It seems that the entry in table HRESSAPPROVER overwrites the workflow configuration. Now the questions are:

1. When is this table updated? I noticed that the entries do not encompass all employees who initiated requests

2. Aside from SE14 or editing the table, is there a standard SAP program which clears the contents of this table?

Your immediate response is highly appreciated
