Deduction calculations are omitted when negative deductions would make a positive check at the time there are positive and negative earnings that net to zero


Consider the following in Payroll in Microsoft Dynamics SL:

  1. There are different deductions attached to REG earnings and VAC earnings
  2. Calculate payroll for REG earnings for 30 hours.
  3. You find this should have been for VAC earnings so in the Time and Dollar Entry (02.020.00) screen, you enter -30 REG hours and +30 VAC hours.  Save and Release this batch.
  4. Calculate payroll for this employee again with the Allow Negatives enabled.
  5. Open the Review-Edit Check (02.030.00) screen and notice the deductions aren't calculated.
