  3. In Column, Select only column “Pay Component Recurring"
  4. Build the report based on the import template you downloaded in step 1.

If the fields in the AdHoc report and import template match, copy and paste can speed up this portion of the process

Note: Make sure that the end date column is not populated

  1. In Admin Center > Import Employee Data, for example, select Pay Component Recurring
  2. Choose the Full Purge option checkbox, if selected Incremental Load you will just add new records instead of correct or update
