Part 5: Testing

Do you have SAP Payroll on a different system than SAP FI? Then your most critical concern is whether your systems communicate well. This handy checklist by SAP HR guru Brian Stewart walks you through the verification process from start to finish. This is part 5.

You can execute a test of the FI data send by running transaction BD18 and picking a G/L Account across from the FI system to the payroll system. This data will show up in the status monitor. You can access the status monitor through BD87. As for posting, you will need to create a posting document and then try to send it. If it fails you can use the IDoc test tool, transaction WE19, to resend the test instead of going through the entire process again. Once you have successfully fixed all issues full testing should be completed.

To keep the data up to date change pointers should be configured in transaction SALE, path ALE->Modelling and Implementing Business Processes->Activate Change Pointers for Message Types. That should be followed by scheduling the job for creating IDocs from the change pointers, path ALE->Modelling and Implementing Business Processes->Creating IDocs from Change Pointers->Define Variants and Schedule Job. As these programs run the data will be kept up to date cross system.
