How to create a HR infotype?

Hello Everyone,

I saw this link ( ) and tried following it but since it's my first time to do HR ABAP work I get confused. I need to create a new infotype (PA9919) that would contain the following:

- Should contain one field that is 15 chars (allows for alpha-numeric values)

- Should have normal screen header

- End date should default 12/31/9999

- When go into create mode, begin date should be blank

I'm stucked with procedure #6 (Create a PS Structure) since I don't know what to put into the table. I'd really appreciate your help.

Newbie on HR ABAP,

Kristine 😊

    In fact it is simple. Basically, follow this procedure.

    1. You should create the base structure PSXXXX. You just include the additional fields you want in this structure. The common header data will be created for the tables.

    e.g. PS9919 should just contain the field 'NUMBR' of some data element (e.g. CHAR15 or a new one you create) or just use the built-in definition.

    2. Use transaction PM01, enter infotype number XXXX, maintain infotype settings (time constraint, subtype strategy,etc...). I think you have some documentation for these settings.

    3. To have the infotype listed on PA30 screen you should deal with some customization.

    That's all!

    Thanks Serdar! It actually worked! I was confused as to what I should put in the maintenance table. Thanks again!
