The City of Tacoma, WA., USA is looking for a way to keep users who use SAP and run the Employee List (RPLMIT00), Payroll Journal (PC00_M10_CLJN) or any other report which provides a column showing the Social Security Number (PERSIDNO) from seeing this information without creating a custom report. We know that we can change the layout to eliminate the column, but how do we keep them from just changing it back to show the Social Security Number. With identity thief and individual privacy being what it is, it is extremely important that this information only be available on a need to know basis. Thank you very much for being there and offering your assistance.

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

Hi:

My first thought is to create a conversion exit for output and update the data dictionary. You could base the output of SS# on an authorization. If the user has the authorization pass the value, otherwise pass a constant such as ###-##-####.

I think this would then affect all on-line displays and reports.

Please let me know the eventual solution.

Good luck,
