Procedure Updated: 

Use this procedure to search by organizational assignment using the matchcode search function in the Personnel no. field.


This procedure will utilize the matchcode search function in HRMS to search by Organizational Assignment. The search functions are available in many fields throughout HRMS, however for this procedure we will use Display HR Master Data (PA20) as an example.

Matchcode searches will allow a user to select the matchcode button in a specific field and enter various search information. To view all of the matchcode search functions for a field, you can select the matchcode button within that field.
