    Hi pals,

    Infotypes are structures specific to HR that hold Employee specific information (e.g. IT0002 holds name, surname, date of birth type of personal data, IT0001 holds organizational data like department, position, IT0006 holds address info, etc.).

    On the other hand, infogroups refer to a specific series of infotypes that come one after another & are to be filled during personnel actions (through PA40). A number of infotypes are tied to infogroups and infogroups are connected to personnel action numbers which are in turn run through PA40 transaction.

    e.g. For hiring action an infotype is created and is filled with the infotypes that should be filled when the employee is first hired (IT0000 - IT0001 - IT0002 - IT0006).

    Regards,

    Hi,

    Infotypes store the Logical data realted to it Ex:- InfoType 6( Address), 8 = Basic Pay.

    Info Groups are a Set of Info types to be Triggered in a Sequential way for a Particular ACTION.( Hiring, Change in pay etc...)

    Regards,
