Field Definitions: PR Batch Process Form

The following is a list of field descriptions for the PR Batch Process form. Many of the descriptions include links to other topics that provide additional information about or related to the topic.

Audit Reports

Audit reports are generated when the batch is validated and identify the information that is updated when the batch posts. The availability of each audit report is determined by the batch source and the information posted to entries in the batch. It is recommended that you print the audit lists before you post a batch: once the batch is posted, the audit lists are no longer available.

The following audit lists are available when processing payroll batches.

Batch List - Prints the entries in the batch in sequence order.

Error List - Lists the sequence number and the error message for any entries where errors were found in the validation process.

Note: Users who have access to batch processing forms do not automatically have access to the related audit reports. It is recommended that if they will be processing batches, you give them access to the related audit reports using VA Report Security. If users do not have access, they will receive an error message when trying to preview/print those reports to which they do not have access. In addition, if using the ‘Attach Batch Report to HQ Batch Control’ feature (assigned in PR Company Parameters), restricted access to one or more audit reports will prevent the user from posting the batch.
