    Go to T code PM01

    Enter the custom infotupe number which you want to create(shoulbe be 4 digits start with 9)

    Select the EmployeeInfotye radio button

    Select the PS structure infotye

    Click to create A separate table maintenance window appears

    Create a PS structure with all the fields you want on the INfotype

    Save and activate the PS structure

    Go back to the initial screen of PM)1

    Click on All push button. It takes a few moments

    lick on Technical characteristics. Infotuype list screen appears

    Click on change(pencil) button

    Select your infotype and click on Detail(magnifying glass) button

    Give T591A as subtype table

    Give T591S as subtype tab

    Give your subtype field as subtype field

    Save and come back to PM01 initial screen

    Click on Change (Pencil) button

    Click on New entries

    Enter your infotype number and short text

    Here we have to set different infotupe characteristics as per the requirement

    Save your entries

    Now the infotype is created and ready to use

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

    In the PM01 initial screen... Select screen radio buttion and aive*** as the screen name, then click on edit

    In the next screen layout editor and click change

    Screen default layout appears..Here you can design/modigy the screen change the attributes of the fields..etc.

    Save and activate (Don't forget to 'Acrtivate at every level)

    Sub type creation:

    Transaction PM01 goto subtype characteristics. Click on Append and subtype. Enter the name and description of subtype on screen

    Then to to technical characteristics and maintain the details of subtype there. i.e name of subtype i.e component name defined in number. Subtype table is T519A.

    Subtype text tab is T591S and time const tab is T591A.

    U can hide the field:Table T588m her u can enter ur module pool and screen no.(IF it is not there..) and can do necessary screen modifications...

    Thanks and Regards,

      Hey All

      Just a small note:

      You must use one of the following transactions to maintain/create Infotypes and their components:

      o PPCI (Personnel Planning Infotype Copier) - PD

      o PM01 (Personnel Administration Infotype Copier) - PA

      In simple words, the steps described above using PM01 enables you to create a Personnel Administration Infotype, and maintain them in HR Master Data Maintenance. However, using PPCI you create Personnel Planning Infotypes which includes OM, Personal Development... etc. To see the steps of PPCI, simply google "Personnel Planning Infotype".
