There are numerous reasons to delete payroll results.  The SAP system often provides integrity checks to make sure that the deletion of payroll results will not cause any issue for downstream processes, such as production runs of FICO posting and bank transfer.  On the other hand, once a payroll result is deleted, it may be necessary to retrace the steps taken for troubleshooting or auditing purposes.

 Unlike the deletion of individual infotype records, there is no long term HR document logging system to keep track of deleted payroll results.  However, there is a rarely used functionality within SAP which allows the user to trace the deletion history of payroll results (as well as complete employee record deletions).

 In order to review the deletion history of payroll results, go to transaction SLG1.  This transaction can also be assessed via the Tools sub-menu under the individual country Payroll menu folder.

Once the report selection screen appears, enter “HRPU” in the Object field.  This will allow you to review the history of deleted payroll results.  Please make sure the Time Restriction selections are specified for the desired period to avoid long run times.

When the results are displayed, the system will show a general listing of the date and time, the user, and the program/transaction used for the payroll results deletion.

To review any of the individual results, click on the line item and the details are displayed in the lower window.

This utility provides other reporting capacities as well such as querying complete employee master data deletions.  If you select “HRDELPN” as the Object selection, the utility will display any complete employee deletions based on your selection criteria.  As always, please be cognizant of the date range selection to avoid long run times.
