Retropay (Enhanced) Does Not Create All Expected Entries After an Absence is Deleted (Doc ID 1469066.1)

Last updated on JUNE 21, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Payroll - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After upgrade from 11i and Retropay by Element, Retropay (Enhanced) is not creating all the expected element entries.

For example, in Jan 2012, an absence from Jan 2011 is backed out and then re-enrolled with the original absence dates. When testing in 11i, Retropay by Element creates both positive and negative retro entries that net to zero, which is expected. When testing in R12, Enhanced Retropay creates only the positive entries, and not the negative, so the employee is overpaid.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Back out an absence entry from 2011 and re-enroll with original dates
2. Run Retro-Notifications Report
3. Run Retropay (Enhanced)
