Understand how to configure HR Form Editor with the example of a payroll process.
The HR Form Editor is a tool to create forms in HR. SAP provides tools such as Smart Forms and SAPscript to perform operations and add graphics. With SAP’s partnership with Adobe, you also have the option to create process-based Adobe forms.
HR Form Editor (transaction PE51) is a standard tool that requires no programming background and automatically generates most required data in a form. One of the advantages of HR Form Editor is that it contains SAP- delivered standard forms that meet most requirements. In addition, you can use forms that you create with HR Form Editor for self-service applications. The forms support multiple countries and languages.
You can use HR Form Editor with form classes related to payroll (e.g., CEDT: Remuneration Statement, CKTO: Payroll Account, and CLGA: Wage type statement). I’ll use the example Form Class CEDT to create a remuneration statement with country grouping 10 (United States). Creating a remuneration statement involves bringing together various blocks of information before the final output. I will describe the various features of HR Form Editor and explain how and why you might configure them. For further details on wage types, refer to a list of related HR Expert articles in the sidebar, “Additional HR Expert Wage Type Resources.”
