The internal table TIP (daily input) is the work table for time evaluation.


The time pairs determined on the basis of the time postings are inserted in TIP. In the course of time evaluation, the time pairs in TIP are processed, changed and made available for further processing.


TIP provides the input of the previous results for the respective processing step. The time pairs are then transferred individually to a personnel calculation rule for processing. After processing, the new results are inserted in the internal table TOP (daily output). There are no more time pairs in TIP at this stage. TOP is renamed as TIP for the next function, so that further processing can be performed from a different perspective.

Processing Type

- = Pair is deleted at a later stage

BLANK = Pair not counted as productive time

S = Planned working time pair

M = Overtime

A = Absence pair included in the calculation of planned working time

P = Attendance pair included in the calculation of planned working time

K = Core night work


Time type


The time types are stored in view V_T555A, Time Types.


Start time event type

Time event type of first entry


End time event type

Time event type of last entry


Overtime compensation type

BLANK = Remuneration

1 = Remuneration (basic pay plus overtime bonus)

A = Absence from Absences infotype (2001)

P = Attendance from Attendances infotype (2002)

R = Availability from Availability infotype (2004)

D = Generated planned pair

C = Attendance/absence reasons


Internal key for availability duty


The internal key for availability duty is stored in view V_T557, Availability Types.


Start attendance/absence type


End attendance/absence type


Pointer to attendance pairs from pair formation


In order that table TIP is not supplied with too much information, further data which is relevant to the time pairs is stored in other tables. This division of the data is referred to as a split. Only the pointer to the respective data is listed in TIP.

The number listed under the table split refers to the relevant record in the table. The numbers in these tables are assigned consecutively.


Pointer to different payment


Pointer to cost distribution


Pointer to absence pairs


Number of hours of a time pair
