Master Data Loading - 0EMPLOYEE

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to determine how to procede in regards of master data loading - I will have to determine if i need to create process chain and what will i have to include in this process chain.

From what is currently implemented (some loading for 0EMPLOYEE have already been done) i see that there is duplicates (e.g I have the same employee 3 times in =employee infoobject with different validity dates).

So my question is: how can I check if a certain object is overwrite or addition (if we have something like that for infoobject)?

If we have duplicates, the the best option would be the creation of a PC that fisrt deletres the content of the object and then load all the infopackages, correct?

Many thanks

Joana

    Hi,

    Any info object would have overwrite functionality with latest record however duplicate record can be allowed only when if it is time dependent InfoObject like 0Employee

    Eg : For an Employee history it can have different position(designation) for range of period in that case we should not treat as duplicates hence we can make this kind info object as time dependent objects,

    Briefly: If info object has time dependency then it will consider the ID,From and to date as a key then it will append/overwrite to the existing data other wise always it is overwrite .

    Hi Joana,

    Firstly master data loading should be done through process chain.

    + So my question is: how can I check if a certain object is overwrite or addition (if we have something like that for infoobject)?

    If we have duplicates, the the best option would be the creation of a PC that fisrt deletres the content of the object and then load all the infopackages, correct?

    ---you can overwrite the master data always. If you have duplicate data present in 0EMPLOYEE then better delete the old one. But do not include delete Process type in PC. Do it manually and then daily load should happen through process chain.

    I hope this will work. Assign points if this is useful.
