Salary information in SAP

Introduction Salary information in SAP is brought across from the payroll system, PSE, through an interface process. All the details are brought across line by line by employee in the format: post number (a 5 digit number), employee number (a 7 digit number) and a series of Xs. For security reasons the employee name is not shown, instead the name appears as the series of Xs. The notes below show how to obtain this employee information in SAP when reporting on cost centres, project codes, internal orders or profit centres.
