2790176 - Time Account Balance as of Termination Date is appearing as positive when it should be negative


You have noticed that when terminating one employee, the tome accounts that have balances negative are displaying the values positive.

Time Account:


Termination Screen:


"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

  1. Select an employee where the account has negative balance;
  2. Select Actions > Terminate;
  3. Fill a termination date;
  4. The balance is displayed as positive instead;


Expected behavior


The first thing to understand is that balances displayed in this section represents a sum of all the accounts within the same time account types, including the closed ones (for detailed explanation, please refer to the KBA 2346895).

If even after that calculation the result is negative, then the amount will not be displayed with a "-" sign.

In cases where the balance is negative you'll see the wording "overrun" which means that the balance is below 0.
