    You can customise the infotype and make changes in screen control 2

    Steps to follow

    1) Go to Transaction PM01.

    2) Enter the custom Infotype number which you want to create (Should be a 4 digit number, start with 9).

    3) Select the 'Employee Infotype' radio button.

    4) Select the 'PS Structure Infotype'.

    5) Click on Create... A separate table maintenance window appears...

    6) Create a PS structure with all the fields you want on the Infotype

    7) Save and Activate the PS structure

    8) Go back to the initial screen of PM01.

    9) Click on 'All' push button. It takes a few moments.

    10) Click on 'Technical Characteristics'. Infotype list screen appears

    11) Click on 'Change'(pencil) button

    12) Select your Infotype and click on 'Detail' (magnifying glass) button

    22) Save your entries.

    23) Now the Infotype is created and ready to use.

    24) If you want to change the layout of the Infotype as per your requirement...
