Writing Formulas for Element Skip Rules

If your payroll policies require periodic or conditional processing of an element, you can write a formula to define when the run should process the element and when it should skip it. For example, your formula could specify:

You can associate only one element skip rule formula with each element. You must write and validate the formula before you define the element so that you can select the formula from a list on the Element window.

To write a formula defining a skip rule:

	IF Union_Fees_Paid > 10000
		skip_flag = 'yes'
		skip_flag = 'no'
	RETURN skip_flag
