2192098 - Compensation Management: Value for Adjustment/lumpsum didn’t update with update in Salary Data


Value for Adjustment do not update with update in Salary Data, even after configuring it accordingly.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

You have setup adjustment guidelines in such a way that if Salary Rate is less than a specific limit (say $9) then the difference would be auto populated on the adjustment field.

For e.g.  Employee has a Salary Rate of $8.26 hence the adjustment field is auto populated with $0.74 to bring him up to the salary standard of the organization.


A new Salary rate is now imported for employee, making his Salary rate as $8.30 which should auto populate the adjustment field to $0.70, but it doesn’t.



This could be happening because the actual field that you are using to derive guidelines for the adjustment field is a custom hidden field and is NOT a reloadable field.




With this configuration, Salary Rate Field(used to derive adjustment guideline) won’t update with the new data.

So the field will be holding the old data $8.24 and for this data adjustment field would NOT change(since as per the rules this is correct)


In order to fix this issue you would have to make this column as RELOADABLE.

NOTE: You’d have to relaunch the forms.
