SAPHR_Holiday Calendars, Public Holidays hints

Few hints for Holiday Calendar and Public Holiday SAP HR maintenance:

A. For floating public holiday, date should be inserted for every year. If you change directly the public holiday, this new date is not displayed in public calendar. For this:

1. fist step is to delete public holiday from holiday calendar,
2. after that change/update public holiday and in the final,
3. go and assign again public holiday to holiday calendar.

Floating public holiday can be updated with new date for certain year with Change Public Holiday –> Insert date –> Change and Save.

B. Public Calendar’s changes are saved without transport request. For transporting to other system, you just finalize your updates and select “Transport” or “F8”, where workbench request will be defined. All Holiday Calendars, Public Holiday, Factors will be transported in this step.

C. If one public holiday is not anymore valid in one Holiday Calendar, don’t deleted it from Calendar, just delimit the end period for assignment. And, vice-versa, if new public holiday needed in calendar then assign this starting with year for which public holiday is valid.

Dear all,

How can be transported from one SAP HR system to another one a sap script text, created in SO10, original system?

Solution from experience can be: transport can be done with report RSTXTRAN and, which is very important, the fields on screen should be filled as follow:

4. “Text key – ID” is “ST”
5. “Text key – language” is language for which script text was created via SO10.

Note: for customizing task, go to se10 (or se09) and create a Customizing transport request. Take the task and use this one for first field of report screen selection.
