1) Click Payroll > Periodic > Earnings statement processing > Generate earnings.

Note

To generate earnings from the Workers or Positions form, click the Payroll tab.

2)In the Pay cycle field, select the pay cycle of the worker positions to process.

3)In the Pay period field, select the pay period for the worker position earnings. The pay periods displayed are available for the pay cycle. The first open pay period is the default pay period, but you can select any open pay period from the list.

4)Click OK to generate earning statements. A message is displayed to indicate that the earnings statements were generated successfully.

Note

Recurring earnings and the earnings from schedules are created first because salary amounts might be affected by other earnings that are automatically generated.

Close the form. To view the earnings statements that were created or updated, open the Earnings statements list page.

Thanks Umesh for your reply, but i already generate earnings, I have an error in releasing the generated earnings.

I opened the earning statements form then check one of the generated earning statements then click the release earning statement then i got the error.

Do you have an Account structure defined in the Ledger in General ledger? If yes, the G/L account which setup in Posting rule must be consider in the Account structure as well.

I've encountered the same issue and got it resolved. Hope it works for you too.

Although its too late to answer this post but it will eventually help the other users. As the error it self refers to earning code posting rule is missing but actually its not exactly what its saying. I have got this error recently on my client.

Further looking into it I double checked all the posting rule in the accounting tab on earning code it was valid. The issue get resolved by revising/fixing the Account Structure.

Its perfect up and running for Payroll.
