Creating Custom Infotype in ABAP HR  

Posted by SAP HR in

Process to create Custom Infotype:

  • Go to Transaction PM01 to Create custom Infotype.
  • Enter the custom Infotype number to be created, the number should be between the customer name space 9001 – 9999. This is the number range interval to be used for the Custom Infotypes.
  • See to it that the ‘Employee Infotype’ and the ‘PS Structure’ radio buttons are selected on the screen.
  • Click on ‘All’ push button on the screen, a separate Dictionary window appears on the screen.
  • Maintain the structure (Provide fields) which will be included in the current custom Infotype. Include all the fields that are needed in the Infotype.
  • The PAKEY/PBKEY and PSHD1 structures are not required to be provided while creating the custom Infotype, they are created by the SAP automatically.
  • Save and Activate the PS structure and go back to the initial screen of PM01.
  • Now, click on ‘Technical Characteristics’, Infotype list screen appears.
  • Click on ‘Change’ (pencil) button and select your Infotype and click on ‘Detail’ (magnifying glass) button.
  • Save and come back to the PM01 initial screen.
  • Click on ‘Infotype Characteristics’. Infotype list screen appears.
  • Click on ‘Change’ (pencil) button and click on ‘New Entries’ button.
  • Enter your Infotype number and the short text for the Infotype.
  • Depending on the requirement, we will have to set the Infotype Characteristics. The best option would be to use the entries of a standard Infotype like 0000 (Actions) or 0001 (Org. Assignment) as a reference. Other way is to click on the F4 button for each parameter on the screen to understand its significance.
  • Save the entries.
  • Now the Infotype is created and ready to use.
