Updates Made to to zhr_pay_posting T-code - 10/4/11

Updates to the zhr_pay_posting T-code go into production Wednesday, Oct. 5. The updates include new indexing to help with efficient running of the report, an option to run the report in the background and retrieve data in original format, and reordering of the selection screen.

When running the updated T-code, users may notice these alterations to the selection criteria:

 A new section at the top allows users to run the report in the background and retrieve their most recent background job in the original format. See the Pay Posting Report--Background Instructions QRC for details.

NOTE: IT automatically deletes the files as a matter of housekeeping after seven days. Users who exceed the seven days are advised to download the results after running or to rerun the job.

 The layout selection has also moved to the top of the selection criteria screen. Here, users can select the layout they want their data to return in. Users are reminded to save over their own layouts only and be careful not to change the default layout for all users.

 All date selection criteria show at the top of the selection criteria. Remember, the Posting Date Range is the date the payroll posted (In Period) and For-View Payment Date(s) is the period the payroll was for (For Period).

NOTE: An example of using Posting Date Range is reviewing financial transactions and trying to put names to postings. An example of using For View Date Range is reviewing payroll charges which posted after a grant expiration to see if the For Period was in the project period.

 If Cost Center is entered as a selection criteria, Fund Center also will be populated. That will help the report to run faster, as Fund Center is an indexed field.

NOTE: The Cost Center field is not always populated; if a transaction contains an order (Sponsored Program, RIO or SIO), that field is not populated. By automatically populating Fund Center and selecting Fund=21010000 and the Cost Center (Fund Center automatically populates), all cost sharing-related transactions will show as well. To exclude cost sharing transactions, exclude all orders beginning with 8.
