Automatic entries are getting created for infotype 0001

Dear Sap Experts.

Whenever i am Changing the latest record in infotype 0001 one more additional record is getting created automatically.

Example :-

For the existing record Start date is 01.06.2013 & end date is 31.12.9999 if i change any field value from this entry, entry is automatically getting splitted into two entries first entry start date 01.06.2013 & end date 01.01.2016 &

second entry start date 02.01.2016 & end date 31.12.9999.

I have regenerated the Infotyp 0001 through PM01 but still i am facing the same issue .

Please help .

    This is because of the time constraints defined for the infotype 0001.

    An Organizational Assignment infotype record (0001) must exist for all active or inactive employees in the SAP System. The system needs the data stored in this infotype for all business processes.

    In addition, this data must be unique, in other words, the system must know precisely to which organizational units the employee belongs. That’s why only one record may exist at the same time.

    So the recently changed values will be displayed and the period will be updated like it happened in your case.

    Please go through the different types of time constraints to check the behavior of the infotypes while saving data.

    Different types of time constraints.

    1 = Record must have no gaps, no overlapping.

    2 = Record may include gaps, no overlapping

    3 = Record may include gaps, can exist more than once

    A = Infotype exists just once from Jan.1 1800 to Dec.12 9999

    B = IT exists for maximum of once from Jan.1 1800 to Dec.12 9999

    T = Time constraint is based on subtype or subtype table

    Z = Time constraint for time management infotypes

    While creating infotype in PM01, in "Infotype Characteristics" the time constraints are defined.

    Hope this helps.
