    Hi Rudy.

    You can convert PE51 forms to smart forms. But you cannot convert the PE51 to HRFORMS. To convert PE51 to smart forms, you need to write a print program for that particular smartform. In the program you can read the PE51 form data (like earnings wagetype, deduction wagetype, cumulation IDs etc..). Store these data in the internal table and display it in the smartform.

    Regarding the difference between Smartforms and HRFORMS. In smartforms you have a print program and a separate layout where u design the payslip like, boxex, lines etc.. But in HRFORMS, u have readymade objects (called Infostars) where the cluster data are already available to you by SAP. You also have separate sections to build the You dont have any print prgram as such. Program will be created automatically.
