HR International SSN

The HR consultant that we have here has recommended that we don't install a lot of the international HR stuff even though we are working with several European and Asian countries. Instead he has recommended that we use country group 99 for everyone. The problem is that when the HR people try to enter data on the PA40 screen for SSN the screen is not saving the information to the tables. So what they have decided is that they need a custom table to hold the SSN numbers for all of the different countries and they might need a custom field added to the screen that will let them save off the SSN to the custom table. That also means they are going to need a few user exits to populate that field on display and print and to save off any changes. I don't want to go through a big enhancement of this kind if I don't have to. Any suggestions?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi, unfortunately I don’t have any HR experience however I do have a background in ABAP and I would strongly advise against changing any SAP standard transactions unless absolutely necessary and if that is the case then try and make all the changes in user exits only. If this is not possible then you expose yourself to a high maintenance burden – every time hot packs are applied and during future upgrades.
