hr infotypes...

hi guys,

I need a basic understanding of something. If i want to retrieve a career history of an employee of company that is how long he was with company and wat posts he worked on and also it shud exclude the period in between when he was not with the company. i want to knw wud infotype PA0000 and PA0001.

Also i want to knw what does the field beginning date and end date describe in this infotypes.

and now the most confusing question.

R the infotypes time specific, means that a infotype stores data only for certain period of time?

like wud it be case that infotype PA0001 wud store info only for 21-01-2004 to 27-10-2006?

please explain,

thanks in advance,

    Hi Reena,

    Infotypes are based on Time Constraints.. Pl go hrough the following SAP" target="_blank">">SAP Help to get a clear understanding of how Infotypes are structured & click on the Time Constraints for more info.

    and yes, 0000 & 0001 should be enough to meet your requirement.

      Hi Reena,

      q1)what does beginning date and end date describe in infotype....ans)decribes the validity period of that infotype record.after the gets delimited.

      q2)if i understood ur question correctly,unless someone purposefully delimits/deletes the infotype record or deletes the entire personnel number from the system completely,infotype data is always available as long as the employee record exists.

      hope it was helpful.
