Auditing Information for Postings for Personnel Cost Planning and Simulation

Technical name: 0PY_PPC01

Use

This InfoCube contains employee-specific details on posting data (auditing information), which are created by SAP R/3 when payroll results are posted. The data in this InfoCube originates from ODS object 0PY_PP_C1 (Auditing Information and Payroll Data).

When data is transferred from ODS object 0PY_PP_C1 (Auditing Information and Payroll Data), the system is restricted to postings that are relevant to cost accounting, which means postings to expense accounts with a CO account assignment.

To ensure this data transfer is successful, the symbolic account's master data must already exist when the data transfer takes place. The system uses characteristic 0PY_COINFO (Symbolic Account: CO/FM-relevant) to determine whether line items are relevant to cost accounting. This characteristic contains information on which account assignment types of SAP R/3's symbolic accounts are flagged as relevant to cost accounting. In the standard system, they are the account assignment types for expense account postings (C, CN, and R).

When data is transferred from ODS object 0PY_PP_C1 (Auditing Information and Payroll Data), the system also performs the following steps:

·        Data is restricted to a selection of required characteristics

·        The calendar month, quarter, and year are derived from the end date of the payroll for-period

·        Posting data is supplemented with account assignment information on the cost center, order, and WBS element from ODS object 0PY_PP_C2 (Posting Documents). You must therefore ensure that the data in ODS object 0PY_PP_C2 (Posting Documents) is at least as current as the data in ODS object 0PY_PP_C1 (Auditing Information and Payroll Data).

This InfoCube provides MultiProvider 0PAC_MC01 (Plan/Actual Comparison for Personnel Costs) with data. This MultiProvider contains current data from this InfoCube and, in addition, planning data provided by InfoCube 0PACP_C01 (Personnel Cost Plans).
