Payroll System Menu

The latest version of the Payroll System menu by Legler Systems in CA identifies 22 separate payroll (PR) computer procedures that can be run by the user, provided the user has access to these online procedures. Access control to the Payroll application is specified in the User Control Record (DB08). Each user procedure shown on the PR menu corresponds to a separate computer program.

A sample Payroll System menu screen is shown below and followed by a definition of each PR user procedure. When only the System-ID (e.g. "PR") is entered on any application menu, the Payroll System menu is displayed. Any payroll accounting procedure is started at any time from the Payroll Menu by entering a 2-digit procedure number or single-click on the procedure name with the mouse.
