A counter is a structural unit of a calculation method. You can enter formulas for calculating pay types in these counters. Counters are calculated according to the calculation method that is set for them. Although you can specify the values of pay types manually, counters receive their values when a calculation is being processed. The result of a calculation can be saved in the counter and is reflected in the pay type.
The following topic provides information about setting up the calculation procedures using counters in the Counter setupform:
