3036471 - You can`t to Migrate Time and Labor Management Data when doing Changes for Time Profile and Manual Adjustment


You are using "Migrate time and labor management data" tool on which system throws error message "Start Date Can't Be Changed Because of Manual adjustments on Time Account" and KBA 2202839 - You Cannot Change the Time Profile Start Date of Employees does not apply here.


  • SAP Business ByDesign 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration Work Center.
  2. Go to Overview View.
  3. Find Migrate time and labor management data and open it.
  4. Try to migrate a file on which there are Employee with Manual Adjustments on Time Account already with a change of Time Profile and it will fail.


You cannot change the Time Profile and do a Manual Adjustment in the same file.


As a workaround, you can change the start of the Time Profile to the desired date and then upload the Manual Adjustments via Web Service. This way you will need to create your own Communication Scenario and add this Web Service to it. Then you will be able to do mass change in your Manual Adjustment.

More details can be checked in the documentation of Inbound Service ManageEmployeeTimeAccountsCustomAdjustmentsIn.

The other option is to do it manually in the UI.
