Real Time in the sence of SAP or IT or Domain. You should have asked him the question, Ok it should be SAP for interview For SAP Consultant. Any company wants a sophisticated Work to be done and with more useful and accurate result even after spending more and more on EPR, So SAP Recruitment helps to Rect people of the client to get the exact people for not only their experiance , with also Educatonal , Exp, Skills, Past experiance and all reqd areas with out enering all the data of the requirement. As in normal people has to sit on the requirement of he position and then shorlist all the applications, it also helps to know the internal employees to call for intvs and the best way of shorlisting is going for Profile Match Ups, and reruitment is useful for integration with all other modules for PD, PY also for relevant reports and up gradations.

While assigning personnel officer by default its showing the standard one like APPL\\\'s admin group only. Its now accepting what I have created under PA define admin group and I assigned under define admn group also (PINCH).

Once you assign your administrator group under PINCH, please check whether you activated or not and also check your groupings. Dynamic Action Here, you control the initiation of actions when maintaining an infotype record. This can be the maintenance of an additional infotype record or performing a routine. For each action, you can determine whether it is always carried out when you change an infotype or a subtype or whether it is only carried out if you change certain fields. You can state whether the action is to be carried out for "Change", "Create" and/or "Delete" record. You can store the conditions for executing the action, for example, the comparison of the old and new value of a field. Finally, you can also specify default values for a record that is to be created. Automatic Triggering/Populati ng of Infotypes When Certain nfotypes are Dynamically Maintained, Table = T5558Z I am facing problem in PA40. While entering the inputs in Personal data in hiring action, I am having the field which is called " CUIL/ CUIT" ( Which it shows key field) . I do not know about this field and how to enter the data in this field. I would like to remove this field from personnel data. IIIly i am having one more field in Bank details in hiring action, I am having the field " Bank Key " I would like to know how to delete/ remove this field from the action, or else how to input the data in this field. I don\\\'t know how to remove this field. But I can suggest you can hide this field by using the following path. Not only this you can hide any field in your screens. SPRO-->personnel management-- >personnel administration- ->change screen modifications; HERE Mod.pool---- ------ MP000200 Screen ------------ 2000 Feature----- ------- P0002 Variable key----- 29 Alt.screen-- -------2029 Next screen------ 0 Then execute details, in 011 -- Q0002-CCUIL -- Worker identification code -- activate Hide checkbox. You can use screen modifications and hide the field. after you hide it and save the settings, CCUIL will not be seen on the screen. Same procedure can be used for bank key too. for your information, the various field options are required field, optional field, hide etc. Which time we have to consider while login time 1) swiping machine recorded time 2) System login time. If an company is going for both the systems, first the company want to decided to go for swapping card system or system log in time, if you required the both, then you discuss with the time administrator to design for both, as per the company requirement the time administrator will decided.

A change in one field of an infotype might require, that certain other infotype be updated at the same time. The details can be specified as a dynamic event. It is automatically triggered by the system. *Examples: * The Personal Data infotype is newly created, and the Number of children field is filled. Once the record is saved, the system automatically displays the Family/Related Person (0021) infotype and the Child subtype (2) for processing.

In payroll mostly you will get the issue of authorization, and check which all infotypes are going to effect while running the payroll. any issue occur, you need to check the infotypes and while downloading check the fields and verify the data , check the programme and wage types also , whether they are maintained properly etc. 9) Can anybody give some examples of tickets in OM, PA.? What are the tickets you will get in support project please provide me with solution? Ans) If any issue, user raises the ticket. Suppose in OM, org tree is not visible and in PA updation of master records, wage type permissibility or any issue. Relating to the same.

1. Explain the uses of the simple maintenance interface?

Simple Maintenance is used when Staff assignments and reporting structure are to be changed. There are three main areas in Simple Maintenance. Each area contains particular maintenance functions, depending on whether you want to edit organizational structure, staff assignments or task profiles. For Organizational Management users, Simple Maintenance is best used to establish the basic framework in organizational plan development. For complete, detailed editing of individual organizational objects in your organizational plan (editing particular positions or organizational units, for example), we recommend that you switch to Info-type Maintenance. Simple maintenance uses a tree structure, which allows you to create a basic framework for organizational plans, using streamlined procedures. In this way, we can create an organizational and reporting structures step by step. 2. What is the use of INFOGROUPS? The infotype group (commonly known as infogroup) guarantees that during the personnel action, all information needed for the business processes is stored. The infogroup is processed when you perform a personnel action. - An infogroup exists in the standard system for every personnel action type. - In Customizing for Personnel Administration, you can tailor the make-up of the various infogroups to the requirements of your company. - You can define infogroups as user-group dependent. Infogroups are used in Personnel Actions to define a set of sequencial infotypes that you would be using while performing an action. For example, when you hire, you would want to use IT0000,0001,0002,0006,0007,0008 etc in a sequence- in a particular order. So define an Infogroup for this purpose which contains all these infotypes, their order of execution and the user groups it is applicable for. Then you assign this infogroup to the action that you had defined. 3. What is PROCESSING CLASS, where we do them and why? Wage type characteristic that determines how processing is conducted during the payroll run. 4. What is EVALUTION PATH, where do we do it and why?

I just wanted to know that when I am recruiting some body, I am generating his personal no also. Then I want to give him a training also. Now I just want to create 2 scenarios to clear my doubts. 1--How to create a time schedule for 1 day training where when the breaks, working hours does not coincide with the training time and the person is also booked . 2--How to create another time schedule that is coinciding with the training time and the person is not booked. What are the steps in time management, so that I can understand by both the scenarios why a person is booked and when he is not booked. A. No need of time management. while creating an event you will be creating time schedule in the box select user defined where you can define different timings for different days with intwervals like weeks , months for this just select multiple. Q. I need to ask you that while I am trying to book one person in training for a business event type, they are saying that this person is not available for the business event. Why is

it so? But that I can book a user for the same business event type. What is the differense between user and person? Now in case if I book a person for the business event, how can I see whether that person is available for that date or not. Moreover how can I see that that person is on leave or not. A. Create a new calendar in time mgt. with open days.means without any holidays and assign it in trng and evnt mgt. and remove time integration. To check for an employee leave or not just pa20 infotype 2001.(absence) Q. About time managemnet. Now I am trying to book person, but I have to see whether this person is on leave or what about the break schedule so that I can give training. For this purpose I am starting again. I am recruiting 2 person, generating 2 personnal no, then prepare the infotype about time and create 2 scenarios to see that in 1 case the person is booked for training (because time schedule is not coinciding wiith the training period) and I want to create another scenario where I can see the person cannot be booked (time period coincides with the training period of only 1 day.) What are the steps of time management about both the scenarios. A. For checking whether the person who is going on leave or who has gone on leave, to find out just got to pa20 and enter infotype 2001 absence where you will be checking whether this guy is on leave or not. If he is ill go onleave so the data will be stored in this infotype. Q. There is 1 person but its displaying that this person cannot be booked. He is not available for the business event. Can you tell me where is it going wrong? What can be the reasons? A. You should be able to book for all persons but it showing only for one person means you need to check infotype 2001 and his workschedule. If it showing for all the persons, just follow as below: Create a calendar with open days means without any holidays and assign in Training and Event Management --> Basic Settings --> Controling days off --> Specify Factory Calendar in this thru drill down/check box select the calendar which you have created in time mangement without any holidays and try out if again. If it shows the same message then remove time integration. Q. I have a certain group of employees who have vacation exceptions. The company does not want to create additional PSA/PA to enable me to put them in their own PSA Grouping for time quota types. Can I use IT2012 to bring in the exception hrs and then add this value to their accrual as defined in config. Because of this they will accrue vacation time at a higher rate. Is this possible? Combining config settings and schema to accrue leave. If I could put them in their own separate PSA grouping for time quota types it would be easy for me as I would not permit generation of quota during time eval. And then do this in the schema. Any suggestions? A. Schemas allows you to move, delete, copy and insert lines in line editorcommands.here you can enter the commands and entered in the area used forthe line numbers. You can overwrite any of the numbers with the commnds. Sub-shemas are called by the copy commnad. Q. I just wanted to know that when I am recruiting some body, I am generating his personal no also. Then I want to give him a training also. Now I just want to create 2 scenarios to clear my doubts. 1--How to create a time schedule for 1 day training where when the breaks, working hours does not coincide with the training time and the person is also booked . 2--How to create another time schedule that is coinciding with the training time and the person is not booked. Show me the steps in time management, so that i can understand by both the scenarios why a person is booked and when he is not booked A. If you want the know the working hours for checking this just goto pa20 select personnel number then selet for 0007 infotype. Click display and then click for workschedule icon which is available on

top. You will find the work timings on the day you require just select and thru chek box you can find his timings. Q. What is a BSP application? A. BSP (Business Server Pages) in the new dimension in SAP where by webapplication can be built. BSP uses HTML for the presenation and ABAP for the business logic. As an option there is also the Java flavour using JSP.BSP applications are far better than the old IAC\\\'s (Internet applicationcomponents) deliverd vide the ITS where the display format is kind of fixed.In SAP HR the new appriasal system used BSP.Well this is only basic information. You may wish to use the MBS (WASversion) to try and developed a simple application using BSP. BSP is a set of pages that represent a user interface (layout and page flow definition). The layout part of a page normally contains ABAP or JavaScript code which is inserted into the HTML structure. They can contain server-side scripting code in either JavaScript or ABAP. BSP applications use all the conventional ABAP technologies, such as Open SQL and internal tables, allowing developers to create Web pages quickly. This enables existing SAP logic, data structures, and interfaces to be directly used in Web applications. Q. What are the difference between : Retroactive Accounting Period, Earliest Retroactive Accounting Period! A. Retroactive Acc Period: The retroactive accounting period refers either to an individual employee or to a payroll area. The earliest possible retroactive accounting period is specified for a payrollarea. The system also takes into consideration the employee\\\'s initial entrydate. Earliest Retroactive Acc\\\'g Period: The period furthest back in the past for which it is still possible toperform a retroactive accounting run. This means that retroactive accounting takes place for a period for which payroll has already been performed. Q. How to write a variable breaks. For example in a manufacturing unit 50 employees are working, all the 50 employees will not take a break at a time, so 25 people will take a break around 11:00 to 11:30 and another 25 people will take a break around 11:30 to 12:00, A. Variable or flexi break means if you are fixing the break as10.00-12.00 and saying that only 30 min break then they can take a break of 30 min at any time in between 10:00-12:00. In config, under time managemnt and then work schedules, go to break schedules and create two break schedules (1) 11-1130 and the other for 1130-1200. I think each will have its own DWS. In this case for break schedule 1, the DWS will be 8000 and for break two it will be 8001. Create work schedules for each and assign to the relevant group of employees. This is the solution I could think of. Q. Is it possible to implement hr without fico in any company? If yes, then who will create the company and other things in enterprise structure. if my company is implementing only hr without fico and in hr also only personal administration is it possible? Actually my client querieing me that whether is it possible only to maintain the employee details as he got other accounting packages like tally. A. It is very much possible to implement HR(PA) without FICO. But it sounds very odd that the company wishes to implement only HR & that too only PA. What about other modules ? If you want other modules like MM / SD you will definitely require FICO. Utilitiwise its really absurd if some company only want to use HR(PA). It is not madtadtory to have FI/CO or other module while implementing HR but it is required to maintain the min. config while going for the HR whereever having the integration. So the basic config

such as company code, cost centre, Business Area, etc. may be maintained by the consultation of FICO counter part For the second part of your question, YOU, the HR guy, will create minimum information in FI and maybe CO (company code, maybe cost centers). Just create an IMG project for PA HR, and the needed basic FICO activities will be included. *-- Battacharya What are: 1. cost center and work center. 2. personnel area(WERKS) and personnel subarea. 3. Retrocalculating Account. 1) Cost Center is for assigning Symbolic acounts related for Posting in GL Accounts and Work center is related to specific work area as Utilities, Boiler section, Processing section and Others you can assume. 2) Personnel Area is an exact Geographical Location under which the comp decides to run their Processing and Personnel ares are all as the Departments in an Hierarcheal Structure which are divided for TIme mgmt, Payroll as PS grouping. 3) Retrocalculating Account. --- > First it is not Retrocalculating Account and it is the payroll which is the running in this month has to carry any earliest payroll for balancing and controlling the payments for an emp for and can be used while paying any Bonus or advance. Infotypes: Infotypes are units of information in the Human Resource Management System. Infotypes are used to record employee data for administrative, time recording, and payroll purposes is of primary importance for master data administration in HR.In the SAP System, the information units used to enter master data are called infotypes. They are also used to group related data fields together. They provide information with a structure, facilitate data entry, and enable you to store data for specific periods. For your quick reference look into the below infotype range for each sub-module of SAP HR Number Range Description 0000-0999 Personnel Admin 1000-1999 Personnel Planning/Org Mgt 2000-2999 Time Data 4000-4999 Applicant Data (recruitment) The infotypes for Personnel Administration would fall between 0000-0999,for Personnel Planning/Org Mgt would fall between 1000-1999 and 2000-2999,4000-4999 for Time Management and Recruitment respectively. Apart from the above SAP Defined Infotypes we can creat our own custom Infotypes as per our needs.The range for the Custom Infotypes should start with 9 and should be between 9000-9999. Read more!

SAP HR Interview Questions and Answers-OM,PA,TM,PY-Set1


Posted by SAP HR in FAQs

Q:Payroll Results How do you post the payroll results to FICO? I created one symbolic account and assigned the same to Salaries GL Account and then completed the other configuration steps needed to complete the procedure. However, when I tried to run the simulation for posting to FICO, I got the message Document is not generated. A: If you have selected Output Log at the beginning of your configuration procedure, it will tell you at the bottom part what went wrong. Q:Components What is the basis of valuation of certain wage components such as Provident Fund? Where does one configure it? A corollary question is what if another component i.e., Special Allowance is made as basis of calculation at another time? How is this configured? A: Go to view V_T511 wage type char and read the F1 help for field Indirect Evaluation module. Module PRZNT will be applicable in this case. Also read help for V_T539J. Both these nodes can be found under Payroll Date>Basic Pay. Q: Deduction Wage Type We have a deduction wage type displayed in the window of our pay slip that shows a negative value. This causes problems and we have tried several measures to correct this including conversion rule 16 for our wage type in the same window but so far, without any success. How can we correct or delete the negative sign? A: You can review OSS Note 406977. This is a collective note of issues with RPCEDTx0 with examples of problems and solutions.

Q: Payroll Simulation How do I correct the payroll simulation entry and check the correctness of our master data? What if one hundred employees get rejected due to error 167-process health plans. What does the following error mean? No entry for plan DENT/cost variant. FMDN/key////x00000000000000 A: You should check for the cost element associated and the validity of cost rule for this plan. To do this, check your configuration under Benefits>Plans>Health Plans>Define cost variant and define cost rules. Q:Leave Quota How do I make sure that if an employee goes over the limit of a leave quota , the future leave accrual will be reflected accurately? A:Configure the negative deduction and check these through the rules. Q:IT0015 I need to capture a reason in additional payment IT0015. The reason code is save in this infotype. I tried to capture for reason A Example to ADDWT 9999 if Reason ADDWT9998. How can I check the reason in IT0015 for accuracy? A: You can try using this to start with: TABLEP0015> VARGBPREAS Then, use the variable key to define the different reasons. Q:Payroll Simulation Why is the system not picking up the values changed this month by default during payroll simulation? However, when I tried last months retro date, it picks up correctly. How can this issue be corrected? A: You can check the Earliest MD change date on infotype 0003. If you have done that already and payroll simulation still doesnt function by default, then there is a problem with your infotype and/or wage type retro settings. Check table T582A. Q:Single Payroll Is it possible to configure a single payroll to pay an individual in multiple currencies? A: No. The system can be configured to pay in multiple currencies but not to pay an individual in multiple currencies. Positive Time Management: Positive Time Management is when an employee has to "Clock-in and Clock-out" each day. There must be a time entry or absence entry for every scheduled work day. Negative Time Management is when an employee only has to record absences or "variations" to the work schedule - works overtime, works other than regular scheduled hours, vacation, jury duty, funeral leave, etc. Hourly employees - those paid for each hour worked usually use positive time recording, Salaried employees, paid regular amounts regardless of time worked usually use negative time recording. The details are as follows : There are 2 Mechanisms of time recording are available 1.Positive time recording :- Actual times are recorded This method completely records all actual times, that is, all transactions such as actual working times, absences, and so on. 2.Negative time recording :- Deviations from a work schedule are recorded.
