  •  created a lookup table with 6 or more inputs and outputs. However, when try to access the lookup table, we get below error message.

  • SAP Successfactors Compensation

Reproducing the Issue

  • create a lookup table with more than 5 inputs and outputs.
  • Login to instance->admin center->hover over compensation tab->select action for all plans
  • All plans->look up table
  • Click on lookup table created with more than 5 inputs and outputs, we get error message as shown above in symptoms section.


  • There is a limitation on how many input and output fields the look up table can support. 5 is the max SuccessFactors support as per design.
  • If they go more than 5 it is the issue. SuccessFactors never supported more than 5 output fields.


  • Revisit the lookup table and make sure that input and output do not exceed more than 5.
