By configuring feature PM004, you can run a payroll simulation for an employee directly from infotype 0008 (basic pay).
Key Concept
When viewing an employee’s infotype 0008 record or making any amendments to basic pay, it is often useful to run a payroll simulation to view the employee’s payslip. You can do so by configuring feature PM004 to place a button on the infotype 0008 screen in transactions PA20 and PA30, allowing you to run a payroll simulation directly from the infotype 0008 screen.

On many occasions when you are viewing an employee’s infotype 0008 (basic pay) screen or making changes to basic pay, you need to see how those changes would appear on the employee’s payslip. You need to confirm that your changes have the desired effect on the employee’s remuneration. The traditional way is to open another session and run a payroll simulation for the employee. However, SAP R/3 and mySAP ERP Central Component (ECC) provide a very easy method of running a payroll simulation directly from infotype 0008 screens.

I’ll show you how to configure feature PM004 to place a Payroll Simulation button on the infotype 0008 screen. Then I will examine the security implications in implementing the function.
