Transfer Payroll Data from One SAP System to Another


Hi there,

We have a requirements where we need to transfer payroll clusters from one SAP server to another. The source is an ECC5 system, and the target is an ECC6 system. We need to migrate all employee payroll information including history to the new system.

We have been looking at writing ABAP programs to import and export the cluster data - would this work? There is a slight complexity in that the employee numbers on the old system start with "00", where on the new system we need to change them to all start with "16". So when downloading the information to file we could do a simple mapping and convert to the new employee number format, and then upload into the new system.

Please give any advice on how this should be done?
