    Hi Raja

    For information on Infotypes, i'm pasting something:

    Definition: Infotypes are units of information in the Human Resource Management System.

    Use: Recording employee data for administrative, time recording, and payroll purposes is of primary importance for master data administration in HR. In the SAP System, the information units used to enter master data are called infotypes.

    Infotypes are used to group related data fields together. They provide information with a structure, facilitate data entry, and enable you to store data for specific periods.

    Structure: Infotypes are characterized by the following:

    ->Infotype Structure

    ->Data Entry

    ->Time-Dependent Storage of Infotype Data

    ->Infotype Structure

    To the user, infotypes appear as data entry screens. They contain whole series of information (for example, last name, first name, date of birth) that you enter in data fields. Data fields concerning the same or similar subject matter are combined into data groups or information units.

    In database terms, infotypes represent a data structure or set of related data records. When you update an infotype, old data is not lost but is instead stored in the system for historical evaluation purposes.

    Data Entry: You perform data entry as follows:

    Your entries are automatically checked for accuracy and against table entries.

    Predefined default values help you to enter and maintain data.

    Checks and default values depend on the employeeÂ’s organizational assignment. The organizational assignment determines the relevant information used from time recording, wage type and pay scale structure.

    Regards

    Hi,

    <b>TRANSPARENT TABLES.</b>

    Transparent tables in the dictionary has a one-to-one relation with the table in database.

    Its structure corresponds to single database field.

    Table in the database has the same name as in the dictionary.

    Transparent table holds application data.

    A transparent table is a table that stores data directly.

    You can read these tables directly on the database from outside SAP

    with for instance an SQL statement.

    Transparent table is a one to one relation table i.e. when you create one transparent table then exactly same table will create in data base and if is basically used to store transaction data.

    <b>INFOTYPES</b>

    Infotypes are the only way to pull current HR data from a screen in HR.

    Other modules only utilize screens;

    however, in HR the same screen can be utilized multiple times

    for different reasons (i.e. New Hire, Termination and Leave of Absence).

    ABAP programming must utilize Infotypes to capture accurate information.

    Hope it helps u.

    Kindly reward points if u find it useful

    Thanks&Regards,

    Ruthra.
