The purpose of this blog is to provide simple step by step process for defaulting wage types in 0008 infotype. Reading the discussions in the SCN forum, I notice just how many other consultants are experiencing problems when configuring them.
Step 1 : Maintain Planned payment specification LGMST feature.
The Planned remuneration specification feature (LGMST) determines default wage types in conjunction with control features: company code, personnel area, personnel subarea, employee
group, employee subgroup and the subtype of the record.
The return code matrix has the following structure: XX/YYYYYYYY, which
has the following meaning:
XX maximum number of wage types per record
YYYYYYYY forms the name for the wage type model and is read from table T539A
Once the entry is maintained , activate the feature.
Step 2 : Set up default wage types for the Basic Pay infotype (0008)
Go to path SPRO–> Personnel Management –> Personnel Administration –> Payroll Data –> Basic Pay –> Wage Types –> Revise Default Wage Types.
This configuration is country specific. When a new infotype record is created, the value defined using the feature is offered as a default value. Which values you receive depends on the organizational assignment of the employee.
The defaulted wage type model can be deleted if it is marked with mode 0 (optional) in the view Default wage types for basic pay (V_T539A). When wage types are marked with mode F (fixed) this is not possible.
While I am pretty sure that most of you are aware of these things I still wanted to publish these things for the benefit of other HCM consultants who are not aware.
