❓ Any mistakes?

If the SD Worx system is unable to process certain data correctly, you will be informed and the employees concerned will be marked in red.

It is best to contact your SD Worx contact person if you are unable to resolve the problem.


First make sure that your SD Worx contact person has activated the necessary payroll codes.

Check that there is only one file in the 'Active files' list. If there are two files, you cannot process the last new file. You must first process or cancel the old file.

Employees not marked in red can still be loaded
