Sequence to Load Employee master data Attributes

Hello All,

We are using the ZEMPLOYEE Infoobject, copy of standard 0EMPLOYEE in our BI HR. We have added some customer specific attributes to ZEMPLOYEE. All these attributes are using different infotypes in HR and loaded to ZEMPLOYEE using different datasources. We also load the standard datasource 0EMPLOYEE_ATTR besides these custom datasources.

I would like to know if we need to follow any sequence to load the attributes to ZEMPLOYEE. I found some peculiar issues that some custom datasource fields are not filled at times in attributes though the record is still valid. Please note that we execute the change run after every datasource is loaded to infoobject.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Regards,

Srinivas

    Hi,

    As per my understanding, there is no dependency while loading the Master data Attributes of a characteristic even though it has multiple attribute datasources.

    This could be of "duplicate" entries are not, in fact, duplicates. But as one entry is placed in Master data by the system to cover time dependent data from the beginning of time =01.01.1000

    Ex:

    1001 01.01.1000 31.12.2010

    1001 01.01.2011 31.12.2011 XX YY

    1001 01.01.2012 31.12.9999 KK PP

    Here the first record doesn't have values which is caused by the time-dependent attributes. So, Check for the time intervals in various infotypes and the data in Master tables.

    Focus on time intervals and overwrite functionality of the Master data.

    Check whether or not Read Master data or any Routines exists.

    If possible provide sample data for better understanding.

    Hi

    Check whether the data is available in PSA tables as Source system data.

    If data is available in PSA tables then might be some DTP filters or DTP variables, routines must be there.

    Hi Gurus,

    I need help on 0Employee_Attr Datasource.

    We are currently on BI 7.x , We are getting duplicate values with End date less than Start Date for two Employees

    Datasource : 0Employee_Attr

    Function Module : HR_BIW_GET_MASTER_DATA

    We checked in tables infotypes PA0000, PA0001, PA0007, PA0008, PA0037, PA0006.

    We were not able to find records here.


    Please find the example below.

    Perrno Start Date End Date 1001 01.04.2013 31.03.2013 1001 01.04.2013 31.05.2013 1002 01.04.2013 31.03.2013 1002 01.04.2013 31.05.2013

      Hi Karthik,

      Load the same data to an infoobject with PERRNO (time dependent char) and activate the master data.

      and after Master Data activation, your result will be like below.

      PerrnoStart DateEnd Date100101.04.201331.05.2013100201.04.201331.05.2013

      Thanks
