For documentation on the BAPI and its interfaces, see the BAPI Explorer.

Payroll Account Transfer: Payroll Periods (T558B)

Transfer Wage Types with Split Indicator (T558B)

Transfer External Payroll-Arrears Results International (T558E)

For performance reasons, these tables are only updated once per input file.
