How to retrieve the action type of a PA40 action?

Hi there,

I am trying to find out the way to identify what was the action type for the personnel action that is just being executed. I will try to explain myself with a concrete example.

Let's take the hiring action.

A user goes to PA40 and initiates the action to hire a new employee. The program will then start guiding the user through the different infotypes defined within the infogroup.

Let's say that the order is IT0001, IT0002, IT0006, ...

I have setup table T779X to call a Function Module of my own after inserting IT0006. At that point in time I can know that the IT has been modified through transaction PA40 (sy-tcode) but, how can I know what action is being executed?

    I'm not certain of the timing, but when everything is done, the action can be found in IT0000 (Preas).

      Actions can always be found afterwards in IT000 indeed 😉

      My problem is that I need to know what action type was initiated in REAL TIME. When I am debugging the batch for IT0006, after the user initiated an action through PA40

      Thanks for the answer anyway
