Reproducing the Issue

Access Advanced reporting and try to create a query for the 'Compensation Emp Comp Info T' table


These are mandatory fields defined in the data model by default and hence these fields will always appear in the fields list.


  1. If you would like to report on 'Pay Group' related fields, they have to be added to the corporate data model and configured accordingly.
  2. Pay grade field is not supported in Compensation information, to remove them completely from Advanced Reporting, please follow the work-around provided in the following article: 2462693 - Pay Grade Field Appearing in Compensation Info
