Short Dump Applicant Infotype

Dear All,

we have to create a client infotype for an applicant implementation.

We create succesfully the infotype in transaction PM01.

The problem is that when we want to test the new infotype in PB30, the system show us a short dump:

The current ABAP program "SAPFP50P" had to be terminated because it has....



The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_REF_IS_INITIAL'

(variable: "INFOTYPE_CHECK").

Can you please tell me which is the solution? We are not sure if we need any adittional add-on in the system to customize RC module.

Many thanks in advance,

    Hello Laura

    Check the following steps correctly to create a HR Infotype:

    1) Go to Transaction PM01.

    2) Enter the custom Infotype number which you want to create (Should be a 4 digit number, start with 9).

    3) Select the 'Employee Infotype' radio button.

    4) Select the 'PS Structure Infotype'.

    5) Click on Create... A separate table maintenance window appears...

    6) Create a PS structure with all the fields you want on the Infotype

    7) Save and Activate the PS structure

    8) Go back to the initial screen of PM01.

    9) Click on 'All' push button. It takes a few moments.

    10) Click on 'Technical Characteristics'. Infotype list screen appears

    11) Click on 'Change'(pencil) button

    12) Select your Infotype and click on 'Detail' (magnifying glass) button

    13) Give 'T591A' as subtype table

    14) Give 'T591S' as subtype txt tab

    15) Give your subtype field as subtype field

    16) Save and come back to PM01 initial screen

    17) Click on 'Infotype Characteristics' ... Infotype list screen appears

    18) Click on 'Change' (pencil) button

    19) Click on 'New Entries'

    20) Enter your Infotype number and short text

    21) Here we have to set different Infotype Characteristics as per the requirement. (Better open another session with some standard Infotype's infotype characteristics screen and use as the reference to fill yours)

    22) Save your entries.

    23) Now the Infotype is created and ready to use.

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

    25) In the PM01 initial screen...Select 'Screen' radio button and give 2000 as the screen name, then click on edit.

    26) In the next screen.. Select 'Layout Editor' and click 'Change'.

    27) Screen default layout you can design/modify the screen..change the attributes of the fields..etc.

    28) Save and activate. (Don't forget to 'Activate at every level)

    Subtype Creation :

    Transaction PM01 Goto Subtype Characteristics. Click on Append and then subtype. Enter the name and description of subtype on screen.

    Then goto technical Characteristics and maintain the details of subtype there. I.e name of subtype i.e. component name defined in PSnnnn. Subtype table is T591A.

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

    Dear Honey1,

    These are all the steps that we follow to create the infotype. But, unfortunetly, something was also missing somewhere.

    Debugging the program, we realize that something was not ready for the applicant module to use that framework. Because of that, the infotype is generated without the proper accoplish and the dump raise.

    To solve this you have to register the infotipe inn the table V_T582ITVCLAS u201CPermited in certain circunstancesu201D

    Fiind the solution in this websides.

    Thanks any way for your help.

    Best regards,
