Entering LH for Multiple Employees Using PA71 Issued 11/18/05
Friday, November 25, 2005 has been declared Acadian Day in the state ofLouisiana and shall be observed as a legal holiday. Time Administrators are encouraged to use transaction code PA71 Fast Entry of Time Data for entry of these holiday hours (LH). This transaction facilitates creation of full-day absence entries for multiple employees from a single screen. However, the PA71 transaction cannot be used for employees on a 24/7 work schedule.
If a time administrator inadvertently attempts to create a full-day LH absence for an employee's OFF day, an error will be generated.
If an absence exists on this day, a collision error will be generated. If the collision error is accepted, the original absence is overwritten.
It is critical that time administrators retrieve and follow the
Fast Entry of Time Datascript when executing this transaction.
Once all LH entries have been created, it is recommended that time administrators run ZP136 (Total Attendance and Absence Report) or ZT02 (Time Entry Audit Report) to validate that entries exist for necessary employees.
PA71 can also be utilized for entry of
LHDH hours, when a time administrator has several employees that will observe Acadian Day (or any holiday) on an alternate date.
