Retroactive Accounting of Payroll Results

In February 1998, a retroactive accounting run is executed for January. FOR PERIOD 199801 IN PERIOD 199802 The payroll results for January are recalculated and then written directly to the database. Result: The database now contains the results of the following payroll periods. FOR-PERIOD 199801 IN-PERIOD 199802 FOR-PERIOD 199801 IN-PERIOD 199801 Payroll is then run for February. FOR-PERIOD 199802 IN-PERIOD 199802 If problems should arise during the payroll run for this period, the February record is not stored on the database. Result: The current January record on the database is: FOR-PERIOD 199801 IN-PERIOD 199802 This problem does not arise if you use the buffer since all data of a transaction is always updated collectively. In the above example, the recalculated January result would be stored in the buffer and, if the payroll run for February were terminated prematurely, the database would not be updated. The current January record on the database would thus be: FOR-PERIOD 199801 IN-PERIOD 199802
