Learn how to activate the ABAP Web Dynpro employee self-services (ESS) application for the pay statement in both the SAP Enterprise Portal and NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC) in enhancement package 5. Beginning with enhancement package 5, SAP changed the salary statement format from Java Web Dynpro to ABAP Web Dynpro. This change applies to enhancement packages 5, 6, 7—the latest version. Learn how to implement this standard functionality using the appropriate role configuration with an example using SAP NWBC roles.
Learning Objectives

By reading this article, you will learn:

  • About the standard salary statement application and what it shows
  • How to create a new role, or change an existing role, to show the standard SAP salary statement functionality
  • How to add a salary statement to employee self-services once it has been configured
Key Concept

Using standard SAP functionality within the IMG, the salary statement can be configured to control the content that is displayed in the statement on employee self-services. Role configuration is used to control what functionality is shown to end users. Role configuration is dynamic and is assigned at the person level so that different people in your organization can see different things depending upon their level of access.

The SAP ERP HCM salary statement application is used by employees to view their salary statements. In this application, both current as well as historical pay records can be seen. The salary statement includes gross amounts, net amounts, outgoing payments, and any additional information such as personnel number and payroll area. Users have the flexibility to customize the form to show the data that is relevant to their organization. It is output as a PDF form on the employee self-services (ESS) application. By default, employees can print the salary statements from the web application or save them as PDF files.

Beginning in enhancement package 5, ERP 6.0, SAP released the Web Dynpro ABAP application for the salary statement. Prior to this there was a Java Web Dynpro application that required SAP Enterprise Portal in order to be displayed. From enhancement package 5 onward, this functionality can now also be displayed by using SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC) for ESS. This opens up the possibility for more organizations to now implement this functionality because, previously, if you did not have an enterprise portal then you were not able to use ESS or manager self-services (MSS).
