PWRPOPY is a useful report for determining payroll amounts and dates for employees who are paid bi-weekly. It allows you to view payroll authorization activity for a given employee or group of employees. It is also a good way to get a list of bi-weekly position numbers associated with a given department.

Depending on how you complete the Parameter Values section shown below, you can run this report to show payroll information based on a specific Org. Code (department budget), employee class.

For example; Casual employees (CE), PT Faculty (AJ), or Student employees (SE) or even an individual employee.

    (Or, just click with your mouse into the third section, "Parameter Values.")

  4. Enter the Parameter Values you want for your report in the "Values" column on the right side. Use the table below as a guide:

To narrow your report down to payroll for a single employee, type in the G Number, if desired.

Note: Multiple ID's are accepted. To add more than one G#, click the Insert which opens up a blank line. Then type '06' in the new line (for Parameter #6), then type in the next G Number.

  1. When you have finished entering the Parameter Values, click into the Submission Block and checkmark the 'Save Parameter Set as' box (no need to name or describe this report).

    This saves your values so you don't need to remember what to put in each individual line. Note: You will want to change and save the new year dates each July. You can skip the Save Parameter Set as if it's not needed at the time, but make sure you click into the Submission Block and click on Save.

  2. Click the Save button and select OK in the pop-up message.
