Summary :

This tutorial describes the process of creating and adding a new holiday to holiday and factory calendar.

Introduction :

SAP calendar master consists of three separate sub-objects which are inter-linked to each other: 

Public Holidays, Holiday Calendar and Factory Calendar.

Public holidays :

Public holidays can be defined and be combined into holiday calendars.
Public holidays describe the statutory holidays for a particular country or region within a country.
Types of Public holidays:

  • Fixed date
  • Fixed day of week from a specific date
  • Specific number of days before or after Easter (Sunday)
  • Easter Sunday
  • Moveable holiday (with individual specification of dates during each specified year).

For holidays with fixed date (such as Christmas) and moveable holidays it is possible to specify simple rules guaranteeing the holiday if it falls on certain days of the week (Thu, Fri, Sun, Sat/Sun). For instance, Christmas day public holiday may be moved to the next working day if it falls on a Saturday or Sunday.

Holiday calendar :

Holiday calendar is assigned to each factory calendar.

Factory calendar

Factory calendar contain company specific dates such as alternate working Saturdays and holidays.
