Infotypes And Screen Views
Infotype is a carrier of system controlling
characteristics such as attributes, time constraints,
etc. Data is not stored field by field in the human
resource database but grouped together in logical
groups. Examples: Planned Working Time,
Organizational Assignment
Screen is used in the context of task processing in the foreground
using the varied structure of the application area. A screen consist
of a screen and underlying logic.
The maincomponents of a screenare:
attributes (e.g. screennumber, next screen)
layout (the arrangement of texts, fields, and other elements)
fieldattributes (definition of the properties of individual fields)
flowlogic (calls the relevant ABAP modules)

Indicator specifyingwhen data is chosen for the IT header
You can use the Choose Dataindicator to determine which selection
period will be used to select data from the various infotypes to
structure the infotype header.
If you set the Choose Dataindicator, you will use data that is valid for
the start date of the current processed, or displayed, infotype record to
structure the infotype header.
If you do not set the Selected Dataindicator, the data that is valid for
the system date will be used to structure the infotype header.
By using the Data Selection Control indicator, you can implement both
the start date and the system date in the Infotype Header Data
Selection Control (T588H) table independently of the info(sub)type.
Example
A Basic Pay(0008) data record is valid from 01.01.1996 to 31.12.9999.
The employee's valid organizational assignment on 01.01.1996 should
be displayed in the infotype header.
The Personal Data(0002) infotype is valid from the employee's birth
date.
There is no point in displaying the employee's first valid organizational
assignment since his or her birth date. Therefore, the system date is
displayed for the employee's valid organizational assignment.
A date-dependent text field is used for a field in the Organizational
Assignmentinfotype (0001) in the infotype header.
The start date of the Organizational Assignment infotype data record
determined by the above settings is used to read this text. If more than
one text is valid within the validity period of the infotype record, the
text that was valid at the start of the infotype record is used.

Infotype Attributes
IMG> Personnel Management> Personnel Administration> Customizing Procedures> Infotypes
Entry Before Earliest Retroactive AccountingDate
You can use the entry before earliest retroactive accounting date
indicator to define if payroll-relevant data may be entered in a
personnel control record before the earliest retroactive accounting
period of the relevant payroll accounting area (transaction code
PA03).
If you set the Entry before earliest retroactive accounting date
indicator, the entry of data is permissible. If an employee's earliest
retroactive accounting period differs from the earliest personal
retroactive accounting date, the retroactive accounting trigger for
payroll is set to the higher date.
Entries before this date are possible, but are used for information
purposes only.
If you do not set the Entry before earliest retroactive accounting
dateindicator, the entry of data is not permissible.
The retroactive accounting trigger for payroll is independent of the
retroactive accounting trigger for time evaluation.
Retroactive accountingrelevance for payroll
When you make entries in the payroll past, the 'Earliest Change in
Master Data Since Last Payroll' field is set in the Payroll Status
infotype (0003).
In the correction phase, when entries are made in the payroll past,
the 'Payroll Corrections' field is also set.
When corrections are made in the current period, only the 'Payroll
Correction' indicator is set.
Infotypes that are payroll relevant but not retroactive accounting
relevant should be given the following keys: Entry in past
'E, Retroactive accounting payroll 'R
Example
' ' =Infotype is not relevant to retroactive accounting,
'R' =Change triggers retroactive accounting,
'T' =Retroactive accounting is field-dependent according to T588G.

Reaction to Entry in Payroll Past
Permissibility of entries relating to the payroll past.
SPACE (' ') - Entries which relate to past payroll periods are
permitted. This type of entry is like changing or creating a database
record with a start date which lies in the last payroll period or prior
to this. The system saves without displaying a warning message.
'X - Entries which relate to past payroll periods are permitted. The
system displays a warning message.
'E - Entries in the payroll past are not permitted. If payroll has has
never been run for the employee in question, the entries are
permitted.
'I - Whether or not entries in the payroll past are permitted
depends on which infotype is being processed. This entry is only
suitable for certain infotypes. If used in other infotypes, the system
does not perform a check.
Reaction indicator for 'No organizational assignment'
When changing or creating records of payroll-relevant infotypes, a
check is carried out to determine whether an entry relates to the
payroll past. For this check, the system requires the employee's
payroll area which is stored in infotype 0001 (organizational
assignment).
Some payroll-relevant infotypes should also be stored for a time
period during which the employee has no organizational
assignment (e.g. tax data for the entire year even if the employee
entered the company in the middle of the year). In this case, you
must specify the indicator 'W' for 'No org. assignment' in table
T582A. The system then displays a warning instead of an error. If
you do not want any message to be issued enter "N" for No org.
assignment.
This indicator is not used if infotype 0001 records must be available
for certain checks, such as is the case in infotypes in which wage
types are maintained. To validate the wage type, you require the
country modifier from table T001P (derived from the personnel
area/ subarea) or the permissibility for each payroll type (derived
from the employee group/subgroup using T503 and T511).
If no organizational assignment is available, an error message
which terminates processing is displayed.

1. Is Retroactive Payroll Accounting triggered by changes to this infotype?
2. Is Retroactive Time Accounting triggered by changes to this infotype?
3. How would you change the system settings so that Retroactive Payroll Accounting is
triggered by a change to a single specific field in the infotype?

Country Specific Infotypes And Subtypes
You can specify the permissibility of Infotypes for
countries.
If the country dependent subtypes indicator is set for
the infotype, you can also specify the permissibility of
subtypes for aninfotype for countries.
In the transactions, Display Human Resources
Master Data (PA20) and Maintain HR Master Data
(PA30), validation of infotypes with country grouping
of entered personnel numbers is carried out. That
means that the only infotypes, or subtypes, that will
be displayed are those that are permissible for the
country groupings in the Infotypes- country-specific
settings view.
Example: Infotype 0461 is the Tax Assignment Canada infotype and is designated as Canadian-only in
configuration. In the view Maintain Master Data, if an existing employee number is entered into the personnel
number field, the system will determine (based on the IT0001 record) whether the employee belongs to a
Canadian company code. If the employee does not belong to a Canadian Company code, infotype 0461 cannot be
maintainedandwill not be visibleinthe pull-downselectionfor infotypes.

www.globalerp.ca SAP HCM
The screen header consists of the first three lines
displayedonsingleandlist screens.
In the standard delivered SAP system, a screen header
is already assigned to each infotype. In addition, the
systemcontains information on whether the data is valid
on the system date or on the start date of the
Organizational Assignment infotype.
Each screen header is assigned a modifier which
depends on the transaction class (A = Personnel
Administration, B =Recruitment).
You can change the screen header, that is, you can
customize the first three lines. You can display data
from any infotype, includingcustomer infotypes.
In addition to any infotype fields you can also include
passport photos of your employees in the infotype
header in Infotype Header Definition view. In the System
Table view, determine the document type with which you
want to enter the passport photos inthe optical archive.

Personnel Action Definition
Functions of personnel action:
It allows you to maintain a previously defined sequence of infotypes, without each infotype having
to be called individually saves time and ensures standard procedure
Exampl e: Instead of entering infotype maintenance transaction and creating each infotype
separately and ensuring that all of the infotypes were created, transactional user should use
a personnel action which holds standard sequence of infotypes for that particular action.
It documents essential events in the history of an employee like changes to essential attributes
(e.g. employee group and subgroup, personnel area, employment status) enables quality
assurance and reduces inconsistencies
Exampl e: when employees subgroup is changed frompay-scale employee to non-payscale
employee if there is still a pay scale pay stored in the basic pay infotype, there would be
inconsistencies. When you make the change via action, all the critical infotypes can be
integrated in the process so that no essential adjustments is overlooked.

Default Values For Infotypes (Feature DFINF)
This feature controls the determination of field values in
certain infotypes. A distinction must be made between the
Actions infotype (0000), and the other infotypes in which
this feature is used.
Here, the feature controls the determination of field values
when a data record is copied. Default values are
generally taken fromthe previous record. In certain cases,
the values should be taken from the settings made in
Customizing.
Infotype Actions (0000) - default values for
organizational assignment
Infotype Organizational Assignment (0001) -
defaultvaluefor payroll area
Infotype Planned Working Time (0007) - default
valuefor work schedule rule(SCHKZ).
Infotype Basic Pay (0008) - default value for pay
scale type and area; and also for capacity utilization
level and working hours per period taken from
PlannedWorkingTime infotype(0007).
IMG> Personnel Management> Personnel Administration> Customizing Procedures> Infotypes> Copy Default Values for Infotypes

Displaying Additional Actions In Infotype 0000
Note that you can only store one personnel action a
day in the Actions infotype (0000) !!!
In customizing, you can specify which action type
should be stored, that is, which should be kept, for an
employee per day if more than one personnel action
was run for the employeeon the same day.
As a rule, you should choose personnel actions
that result in a status change, for example, the
leaving action which changes the employees status
fromactiveto left.The other action(s) will be stored
inIT0302.
The Additional Actions infotype (0302) only stores
the action types and the reasons.
Note: You cannot run two personnel actions that
change an employee's status on the same day. For
example, you cannot run a leaving action and an early
retirement/retirement action on the same day. In this
case, one actionwould overwrite the other.

Fast Entry Of Personnel Actions
The Fast Entry of Personnel Actions function is
available for some actions. This function enables you to
carry out a personnel action for one employee. There
are several required entry fields that you must fill on the
Fast Entry screen in order to carry out a personnel
action. You can enter all the important data for the
individual employee that is not derived fromthe default
values. Using these entries as a basis, the systemwill
fill all the other fields with default values (for example, if
you make an entry in the required entry field Position,
the systemwill automatically suggest a default value for
the field Payroll accounting area). When you use the
Fast Entry of Personnel Actions function, the system
does not display the fields for which default values are
suggested automatically. The advantage of this function
is that you can maintain all the required entry fields for
all the infotypes belonging to a particular personnel
action on one screen. This prevents you fromhaving to
maintain all of the fields included in the infotypes
assignedto the personnel action.
Transaction PA42
In the standard system, you can only use the Fast Entry of
Personnel Actions functionfor the followingactions:
Hiring
Organizational reassignment
In the Implementation Guide for Personnel Administration, you
have the option of customizing the Fast Entry of Personnel
Actions function to suit your company-specific requirements. You
can set up your own fast entry screens for all the personnel action
types you require by determining the content and layout of the
screens.
