Symptoms

 

We found that the error is coming out from PSPDARRY.cbl when DEDUCTION-COUNT-MAX (Deductions count for each employee) is exceeding the limit 40 specified in PSCDARRY.cbl. It looks following table to count number of deductions.

HEALTH_BENEFIT        
LIFE_ADD_BEN          
DISABILITY_BEN        
SAVINGS_PLAN          
FSA_BENEFIT          
RTRMNT_PLAN          
PENSION PLAN          
VACATION BUY/SELL PLAN
GENL_DEDUCTION        
DED_ARREARS

All the error employees on LTD and due to no gross and based upon dedcd set up they are going to Arrears. So General Deductions, Benefit Deductions and Arrears together crossed the limit 40 in all the cases.

We made all the arrears adjusted to zero. But Paycalc is still counted these rows.

SOLUTION:  
We were able to run paycalc and confirm successfully in out test database after deleting arrear rows for error employees from ps_ded_arrears and ps_bal_adj_arr tables or by reducing them to make it less than or equal to 40.
