How to delete time evaluation error messages
Running time evaluation and fixing the errors is a day to day activity of time admin. So controlling the messages is a common activity. But the problem is by running time evaluation every day it produces lots of error or warning messages and time admin would reduce them. In this document I will show how to delete error messages.
There was some discussion like http://scn.sap.com/thread/3421777 and today I had a similar issue. So I had to debug the program to I realized how can I delete the error messages.
1) One way is deleting time evaluation result from PCL2 by report RPUPD200. But in this way you will lose the time evaluation result also. This is a good idea to delete and clean the system but not to close the error messages by deleting them
2) Another way which I am explaining is using report RPTERR01 or Tcode PT40.
Run PT40, entered personnel number and click on Error Handling button.
System will show list of errors and to be able delete a record you must first fix the error. For example if there is a missing clock-in/out by creating required record in IT2011 you will fix the record. By fixing an error system will tick the error with a green check box. In this case you can delete the error record.
Otherwise system will show an error message.
System do this thru following programs
Here system control if the record is checked or not
I think but I am not sure, system should delete error messages by default in next time evaluations by fixing the error. I am not sure and I will check it.
