Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open Excel template and enter proper data.
  2. Click button Save Data.
  3. Excel Add-in may throw error "No time agreement exists for employee".


You might have added extra space in the excel file or while creating employee you might have added extra spaces to the Employee ID

Ex: Employee ID might be in excel is xyz and Employee ID might be in the system is xyz# Or tis could be Other way around.

Note: abc referred as Employee ID & # referred as space.


One of the possible reason for this error could be space before/after the employee ID #xyz# and it may be stored as such in the backend of the system.

To cross check whether  the space exist before/after the employee ID, please search with the Employee ID in the Employee Personal Administration or Employee Time file, if the search didn't work try to put the *xyz * to find the employee, this will confirm you, that there is space exist before or after the Employee ID.

Accordingly do the changes to the excel file and perform the Time recording update.
