Double-clicking on a sub-schema will take you to the maintenance screen for that schema.

Double-clicking on any of the rules (PCR's) will take you to the rule editor. You can tell the difference between sub-schemas and rules by looking at the parameters. The name of the sub-schema can be found in the Par 1 column. The main schema generally calls all the different sub-schemas. The sub-schemas will then call the payroll rules. In most cases, when a rule is called, there will be parameters in the Par 2 or Par 3 columns.

In the main, most sub-schemas are called by the "copy" command.

Schemas, rules and features in SAP use the following line editor commands. This allows you to move, delete, copy and insert lines. All the commands are entered in the area used for the line numbers. Overwrite any of the numbers with the commands shown below. For the commands using 1 letter - hit the return key once you have entered the letter. For the commands using 2 letters - hit the return key after the first 2 letters have been entered or after both sets have been entered.

The most commonly used commands are:

Line CommandDescription
DDeletes a line
IInserts a line
MMoves a line
CCopies a line
DD Indicates the start of a block to be deleted
DD Indicates the end of a block to be deleted
CC Indicates the start of a block to be copied
CC Indicates the end of a block to be copied
MM Indicates the start of a block to be moved
MM Indicates the end of a block to be moved

Once you have chosen the block to move or copy, you need to show where to move or copy it to in the schema. The following commands indicate where you can copy or move the lines to.

Line CommandDescription
APlaces the block after the chosen line
BPlaces the block before the chosen line

In addition, a '*' in the D column indicates that the corresponding function or rule has been commented out and will not be processed. Lines with this indicator are also not displayed in the exploded schema via RPDASC00. It is good practice when replacing a SAP standard PCR or function with a custom one, to comment out the SAP standard one rather than deleting it completely.

Remember when calling a PCR within the schema: setting PAR 2 to GEN means that the rule is called for all time types. If you want the rule to be called for specific time types, then leave this parameter blank. For PAR 3, a setting of blank indicates that the rule is called for all Ee Subgroup groupings for time evaluation, and to specify that the rule is to be called only for the Grouping for the Time Evaluation Rule set in IT0050 the setting should be ABRT.

Use the PRINT function and a specific table name in PAR 2 anywhere in the schema to output the contents of that table during processing.

Position is very important for schemas. Look to see where a similar piece of processing has taken place. If in doubt, place the rule after the similar data has been read and processed.

Commonly used Functions

FunctionDescription
