  • Hi,

    You could develop your application in SharePoint with most of your columns created inside of the SharePoint List and some others (more complex) could come from your SQL database. 

    This kind of field is called External data column. They are linked to your SQL using the Business Data Connectivity (BDC) service. Here is how you could create such column :

    However, since most payroll application often require complex data relationship I would not recommend SharePoint for the backend. 

    See this article for more information about using SharePoint list vs Database Table :

    Best regards
