Objects & Infotypes Update

Hi all,

I'm going to describe my particular scenario...

I have an object called 0S (pp01 transaction).

Inside of it, I wanna to create several data through different infotypes, so I beginning to create it:

9050 (general data) -> pernr + nach + vorna

9051 (specific data) -> building + ou + job

Since here, right! But now, imagine I wanna to create a new infotype called...

9052 (candidate) -> and I wanna to inform it with the same data that I show you before: infotypes 9050 + 9051.

Can I create the new infotype (9052), with two 'subtypes' or 'subInfotypes' or whatever you wanna named, like the two created before?

My idea is to create the 9052 infotype with 9050 & 9051 infotype 'inside' of it. Could anybody understand me??? Is it possible?

Thanks!!!!

Miguel Angel.

      As i said earlier when we create an infotype with Subtypes, when both the subtypes usually operate with the single structure. While selecting subtypes, we try to use the same structure for both the subtypes. You could have seen them in Address infotype, family dependents. for one subtype we can hide one or more fields from view to modify screen from one subtype to another but not all the fields.

      In your case you are planning to save numerous different fields in both the subtypes. THats why Two infotypes instead on one with subtypes

    What is the purpose behind the creation of Two infotypes? Cant all the fields be placed in one infotype.

      Yes, of course. But imagine that the scenario is like the one I explained before but with a huge number of fields. Is it possible?

      The real scenario is not the same, but there are a huge number of fields, so we create different infotypes depending of the meaning of the fields.

      And finally, we want to create another infotype that have different fields, and all of them exists in different created infotypes. So, that infotype have to had a lot of fields and I wanna to split them in different 'subInfotypes'. Could you understand me?

      Thanks!

    i tell you iam not a techie,

    You can create a infotype with 2 different subtypes. but usually subtypes are used only when there is little or no difference in infotype fields

    <b>As mentioned by you, as there are large number of different fields, you might have to go for two different infotypes.</b>

    I dont think it is possible to pack 2 infotypes in one
