Changing Hiring Date which is incorrect

Hi Experts,

     I have an issue in changing hiring date. i found some help document  but could not understand properly.

Help document link:  Changing the EE's Entry Date After Payroll: Actual Entry Date Af - Personnel Administration (PA-PA) - SAP Library

My questions are:

  1. After reading the above note from help document. as for as i know We can not perform the multiple actions on the same day with Different Employment status (Ex: Active to Inactive).

  Incorrect hiring date 01.01.98

  Original Hiring date 01.15.98

As per the document i tried to run an action on same date(01.01.98) with incorrect hiring date action Type  with inactive status(Previously it was just hired with active status). system throwing an error message as "Do not enter personnel action for the date hiring/Transfer.".  correct me if i am thinking wrong.

2. As per My knowledge SAP Allows a standard process like after  bringing an employee into SAP system with ACTIVE status then we can play with employee by performing other actions. Now  Can we perform INACTIVE status action type on employee on before active status of an employee.

Please find the attachment for more info for second point.

3. If my understanding is incorrect on this topic please guide me how to change hiring date in this specific scenario. Requested to provide input bit detailed

Thanks in advance,

Hi Ashok,

Please refer the note 41523 - Change entry date after payroll run

As per SAP Standard we cant override employment status on the same day,but from the note Incorrect and Correct Entry action looks like special case scenarios,so these actions can be an exception.

Please check whether you are using proper actions for correction as mentioned in the above note.

Hope this helps.

Thanks & Regards
