Retro Postings issue



June Month- Payroll Run  ( RT generated) and Posting NOT done( missed).

July Month-  Some Retro Changes done for June master data and July Payroll is Run( RT Generated) . Thereafter Posting is RUN for July and is successful.

Question: If there is no Posting for June Month , how come the Posting document of July is coming correct ( which contains retrospective June changes). My understanding is that if the Posting for an EE is missed for a particular month( in this case June) then subsequent month postings which has this month as retroaccounted - for period- ( here June), then system will not post.

Pls help me to understand.

I have used the DEV environment and have used the Simulation posting of July. for May Month I have the Live posting results in RT with Document as Posted. As stated earlier there is no Posting result of June as user missed it.

Also previous  financial periods are open and have not been closed.

What Naik is said is right.

Here posting of payroll results means we are showing the cost for the particular Cost center with the appropriate G/L account for the Accounting purpose only.

If you don't run live run in the month of june, then in the month of July it will run for the retro and in the July posting two months payroll salary will come. Once you run the payroll live run means system confirm that salary credited to Employee for this maintain Bank A/c (mode of payment from IT 0009) and it won't check whether it is posted to FI or not.

Need any clarifications revert back.

Best Regards.
