Note : Before you proceed with the following instructions, back up the database. If your organization integrates multiple Blackbaud products, refer to the Additional Requirements section of the backup article.


In Plug-Ins, select Miscellaneous
Click Payroll - Compensation type date utility.
Mark the Analyze compensation type effective dates checkbox and click Update. A list of the compensation types with invalid effective dates will be created.
Mark the Repair compensation type effective dates checkbox and click Update. A list of the repaired compensation types will be created.
If you have a small number of compensation types to correct, you can manually change the effective dates.

In version 7.7, we added additional verification processes to prevent data corruption. In versions prior to 7.7, the program allowed you to enter invalid effective dates. Beginning with version 7.7, it generates an error caused by the invalid dates.

Possible causes of invalid Effective dates:

  • A calculation using the compensation type is dated prior to the Effective start date of the compensation type.
  • A calculation using the compensation type is dated after the Effective end date of the compensation type.
