Understanding following Payroll Functions which are generic in nature and most frequently used. Will be helpful in understanding payroll process and writing personnel calculation rules (PCR).
|S.No||Name of the
|1||COM||Comment lines in a schema||Function COM creates comment lines which explain the meaning of a schema
and thus the type of payroll generated with this schema.
|2||COPY||Copying a Subschema Stored in the System||The function COPY copies the schema specified in Par1 dynamically to the current schema.|
|3||BLOCK||Log structure||The BLOCK function allows you to structure the payroll accounting process log. By marking the beginning and end the sequence of payroll functions are grouped together semantically and they appear in the process log under a
common node.Parameters BEG/END

|11||IF||Conditional Execution of Functions|| The functions in the personnel calculation schema that are between the IF
function and the ELSE (or ENDIF) function are only executed if a condition is fulfilled. This condition can be specified using a symbolic name or a personnel calculation schema. The functions IF, ELSE, and ENDIF form a function block.
|12||ELSE||Conditional Execution of Functions||The ELSE function belongs to the function block formed by IF and ENDIF.|

Depending on the parameters, the data is made available in a second record
|19||PITAB||Processing Internal Tables||PITAB makes it possible to reload, delete, and merge internal tables. The purpose of this function is to save the contents of one table to a different
table in order to process the original table with a different set of data. Afterwards, you reload the original data back the table.
|20||PORT||Transfer of Data from the Previous Payroll||The function PORT initiates a calculation rule which processes the wage types of the old results table ORT according to the specified rules.|

|31||P2010||Processing Request for Employee remuneration Information||Function P2010 evaluates the employee remuneration info entered in the
infotype Employee Remuneration Information (2010).
|32||ZLIT||Importing wage types from ZL to IT||Function ZLIT is used to import wage types from internal table ZL to internal table IT.|
|33||P0416||Process Quota Compensation||You use function P0416 to process the quota compensation records from the Time Quota Compensation infotype (0416).|
|34||AVERA||Calculation of Averages||The AVERA function performs the complete averages calculation. The average
value is calculated for each average calculation rule.
|35||P0045||Provision of Loan Data||Function P0045 processes the master data in the Loans infotype (0045) that is valid for the payroll period.|
|36||PRT||Process Results Table||The payroll function PR calls a personnel calculation rule for each wage type from the results table RT. The header row of the table OT is used as the
|38||P0014||Processing Request for Recurring Payments and Deductions||Function P0014 evaluates the master data in the Recurring Payments and Deductions infotype (0014).|
|39||P0015||Processing Request for Additional Payments||Function P0015 evaluates the master data in the Additional Payments Infotype (0015).|
|40||P0057||Processing Request for Membership Fees||Function P0057 is used to evaluate infotype 0057 (Membership Fees). Since processing takes place directly after each record has been read, the rules in PE02 can refer to record layout fields.|
|41||GEN/8||Form technical wage types /801 – /8nn||Function GEN/8 generates up to 16 secondary wage types for the calculation of partial period factors.|
|42||ACTIO||Rule-controlled performance of an action||Function ACTIO, like Function PIT, is accessed to call a personnel calculation rule. The rules are processed irrespective of whether certain wage types exist. Processing always takes place.|
|43||PRART||Processing Table OARRRS||
The function transfers entries from the old arrears table of the previous period (OARRRS or its copy AOA) to the internal table IT. So deductions that could not be taken in the previous payroll period can be processed like regular deductions created in this payroll run.
Some wage types should only be processed in regular payroll runs, others only in special runs, and some in both kinds of payroll runs. This is
|44||PRDNT||Original payroll period: This function processes all deductions in table DDNTK. During the previous loop run, this table was filled with the deduction amount that cannot be deducted from the emaining net amount. Entries in the IT table have to be reduced by this amount.
In the standard system, all deductions are stored in table IT after the recurring payments/deductions, and one-off payments (infotypes 0014 and 0015) are imported. This function is then directly called up, without parameters.
The system uses exactly the deduction amounts that were deducted in the
|48||PRPRI||Processing the Priorities Table||
This function processes all deductions according to their priority and their arrears characteristics. If the retained net amount is insufficient for the deduction, the deduction amount is reduced accordingly.
he amount which is not deducted is either stored in table DDNTK (Deductions not taken), or in both table DDNTK and table ARRRS (Arrears) and is then processed in the next payroll period with function PRART.
|49||PREND||Processing Table DDNTK (Deductions Not Taken)|| After the last loop run of priority processing, table DDNTK Deductions not taken) must be modified. At the beginning of the loop the wage types in the arrears table from the previous period have been placed into table IT for regular processing (Function PRART). Table DDNTK at the loop end contains the amounts that could not be taken from current deductions and amounts that come from the arrears table of the previous period.
Table DDNTK should only contain the amounts which could not be taken from the current deductions (IT 00014/0015). The principle behind it is that firstly the old arrears amounts of a wage type are taken and then the current deductions.
|45||PLRT||Processing the Last Results Table||Function PLRT accesses a calculation rule that processes the contents of the last results table LRT according to specified rules.|
|46||PDT||Process Difference table||Function PDT accesses a personnel calculation rule that processes the ontents of difference table DT according to the rules specified.|
|47||SORT||Sorting Internal Tables||
You can use function SORT to sort internal tables.
|48||DATES||Providing Date Specifications in Payroll||
Function DATES provides date specifications from the work center for calculating specific deadlines in Payroll.
|49||BTFIL||Read Bank Transfers from Last Payroll Run||Function BTFIL moves the bank transfers from the last payroll run to table BT for processing.|
|50||XLIDI||Cost Distribution of Liabilities||This function executes preparatory measures
for the posting transfer of the payroll results to Accounting that are
necessary within the new general ledger. The function distributes the
liabilities according to expenses and for this purpose fills the tables LIDI
and LIFL. These two tables are only for the purpose of distributing according
to expenses. The function does not influence any other tables of the payroll results.
|51||P0011||Processing Request for External Transfers||Function P0011 evaluates the master data in infotype P0011 – External transfer from .|
|52||P0009||Processing Request for Bank Details||Function P0009 evaluates the master data from infotype 0009 – Bank Details.|

2. Create average bases for the following payroll periods
|55||EXPRT||Exporting interim or final results to databases||
Function EXPRT writes various internal tables in cluster tables, such as PCL1 (RP cluster 1) and PCL2 (RP cluster 2) to the database.
For example, the following tables are exported and stored under a country-specific indicator (for example, RD for Germany):
The information can be imported again using function IMPRT.
|56||BREAK||Setting a break point||The BREAK function allows you to interrupt processing at any point in the schema and branch into the break mode.
|57||PZL||calls a rule which processes the wage types in table ZL||Function PZL calls a rule which processes the wage types in table ZL according to specified rules.|
|58||XDECI||Convert Amounts to Standard Decimals
|Depending on the value of the first parameter, this function can perform one of three tasks. It either checks all currencies in the amount field, enters a standard
currency in a blank currency field or converts amounts in a currency with
more than two decimal places to the standard Currency.
|59||DELZL||Deleting wage types from table ZL||Function DELZL deletes wage types from the time wage type table ZL.|
