  • we also are not able to get Update EEO-1 Pay Data to show for Abra Suite clients

  • I am too... have you been able to fix?

  • I ran 2017 with no issue, but when i ran 2018 i got an Invalid Data message, and looked at the report and i'm not sure what i'm looking at to fix it.  I believe it lists EMPLOYER, EMPNO ..then i'm not sure what the rest of the data is, did you resolve?

  • your error report probably has Company, Empno, Wages, Hours. 

    I found the Invalid Data Error typically indicates the employee had wages in the reporting year but worked 0 hours.  

    Just go to the employee Current Pay tab and select the PAy band associated with the wages for the employee on the report.  That will prepare the employee for the EEO-1 Summary Headcount Report.  

    The error message usually says to correct employee data and rerun the Update Pay Data.  This is WRONG.  Update Pay Data report will not change so there is no way to ensure that you made all corrections other than to review each employee number manually.  

  • Thanks, that makes sense with this employee, hours were 0.  I changed the pay band and re-ran but it did come back with the same error.  Do i also change the hours worked on the Current Pay tab?  I also found in the Sage knowledgebase it's because the justification of the fields is off btw hrpersnl and upempl.  Which is true, but that's the case of all employees.  So you said that i don't have to rerun the Update Pay Data, and i can just continue with the next steps, it seems like Headcount Detail is still 2017 data?  Thanks!
