Q 2) How do you run payroll?
Ans 2) One has to release a payroll before you execute it, only then payroll run must take place.
First -- use t-code to release payroll is PA00_M40_PA03_RELEA (here in M40--40 stands for country grping; PA03 is the t-code for control record;)
then use t-code PC00_m01_calc to execute.
