SAP Issue Affecting Org Unit Display Being Investigated - 02/2/12

Human Resources recently discovered that the process it had been using to keep organizational unit names synchronized between SAP OM (Organizational Management) and SAP PA (Personnel Administration) was no longer working properly.

The effect of the problem is seen below in the screen shot of the SAP HR display for Organizational Assignment (aka Info Type No. 1; aka, Appointment Screen) that can be viewed using t-code PA20 and PA30.

As an example, Org Unit 261 recently was assigned a new name. The current name, School of Languages and Cultures, is used to correctly label the high level cost center associated with Org Unit 261. However, the previous name, Foreign Languages and Literatures, still displays at two places on this screen.

This issue is being investigated. When a solution is developed, HR will review all org unit names to identify those which have not been properly updated. It then will run the corrected process to ensure that current org unit names display on the screen.

This problem primarily will affect central office and business office staff who use SAP t-codes PA20 and PA30.
