Purpose

You can use the function and operation editor to create, change, delete, and activate functions and operations. If you have created new functions and operations, you can use these in personnel calculation schemas and personnel calculation rules.

Prerequisites

Before you can create and edit functions and operations as logical objects in the editor for functions and operations, you must have created, checked, and saved the source text for the new function or operation in an include. For this purpose, use the country-specific include PCBURZxx0 in Payroll and the include RPTMOZ00 in Time Management.

Process flow

  1. Call the function and operations editor using Payroll ® Payroll ® <Country> ® Tools ® Customizing Tools ® Function/Operation.
  2. Enter the object name, the object class and the object type and choose Create, Change or Display.
  3. You access the Attributes screen: When you create a new function or operation or change an existing function or operation, you can make the following settings here:

Name of form routine

If the routine name differs from the naming convention FU<function name> or OP<operation name>, select the Self-Defined field, and specify the routine name.

Country assignment

You can select the countries for which you want the function or operation to be available. This assignment is also transferred to the function or operation parameters. If you delete a country from the country assignment block, it will also automatically be deleted from country assignment of all parameter values.

Parameters

The Parameter list allows you to maintain parameters and their characteristics. For information on the meaning of the parameter structure, choose Documentation.

Parameter values

If you edit a function you must also specify the parameter values for parameters of the type blank. To do this, select a parameter and choose Select <Detail>; Detail.. You access the Parameter values dialog box. You can enter the values that are valid for this parameter and their meaning. For each individual parameter value, you can also specify the valid countries using Select in the Valid countries parameter value dialog box.

Note

The system only displays the countries you have selected for the country assignment for the complete function.

Infotypes used

When you edit a function, you must specify the infotypes used.

  1. Save your entries.

This activates the Transport Connection. The function or operation has now been created, but cannot yet be used in personnel calculation schemas or personnel calculation rules.

  1. Choose Activate.

The system generates the necessary programs for the

Schema check when you activate a function

Rule check when you activate an operation

Note

If you have changed the country assignment of an active operation, you may have to regenerate the calculation rule. If this is the case, the system displays the appropriate report.

  1. You can check whether the system has assigned a correct internal number for the function or operation. To do so choose Utilities ® Check T52A0.

This runs a consistency check. Table T52A0 contains the internal number of objects. Just as with operations, there are also different number areas for international, country-specific, and customer-specific functions. The system compares the number assignment of the function or operation with the namespace. The system also checks whether a number has been assigned twice.

Result

You can now use the new function or operation in personnel calculation schemas and personnel calculation rules.
