ersonnel data :
Employee-specific guidelines: data is entered according to the following

• Fitting the employee into the organizational structure has the highest priority; this is the first step in entering personal data. • The set of valid entries for the entry mask is defined in the validation tables. • The set of valid entries in the tables is further restricted depending on the organizational assignment of the employee.

Master data Infotypes : When a new Personnel number is created. • • • • Events (0000) Organizational Assignment (0001) Personal Data (0002) Payroll Status (0003) . the following Infotypes have to be maintained first.

Business Procedures in Personnel Administration When managing employee data the following tasks can perform • Hiring an employee • Organizational reassignment • Leaving the company .Personnel Events : A function that groups together infotypes for processing personnel procedures.

we have to enter large amount of data for employee into the system. In HR different types of employee data are stored in infotypes.Hiring an employee: When assigning a new employee in a company. When hiring an employee. we need to maintain lot of infotypes. . Hiring can be carried out using a personnel event.

When you run this personnel event. .Organizational reassignments : Important changes in an employee's career path must be documented in the system. the system will automatically offer you the infotypes that you need to maintain. the standard SAP system contains the personnel event Organizational reassignment. Consequently.

. The personnel event Leaving is used to depict an employee leaving the company in the system. This event gives the infotypes for maintaining the data of when an employee leaves the company.eaving the company: When the employee leaves the company. certain infotypes cannot be changed.

The use of Logical Database 3.HR is different from other modules? The following concepts are defined in HR which differs this module with other modules 1. Use of Macros 4. Use of Infotypes 2. Storage and Access of data 5 Authorization checks .

HR Technical Overview .

the corresponding database table associated with it is PAOOOO. Each infotype has a database table associated with it.Data handling in HR (Using of Infotypes): Master data in HR is stored in infotypes. Example: For Infotype 0000. Each infotype pertains to a specific type of data. .

g . The Infotypes are used to group related data fields together. we require old data as well as new data.What is Infotype The information units used to enter the data of an employee are called infotypes. In simple. E. . IT0006. HR data is huge and to access data easily we require Infotype..(address) Why Infotype As HR is related to time. The data we enter into the infotypes are automatically checked for accuracy and against the table entries.

. In other words. a LOB is a method by which ABAP programs read and process the data. The sequence in which the data is supplied to the program is determined by a tree structure.What is logical database? The LOB is special type of ABAP program that combines the contents of certain related database tables and retrieve some related data and make it available to application programs.

..The LDB usually consists of the following components. ) . • Structure • Selections • Database programs Logical Database (Contd .

Logical databases have a tree structure... ) . A logical database can contain a maximum of 300 tables Logical Database (Contd .

Logical Database (Contd .SAPDBPNP is the name of the database program for the logical database PNP.) ...

1. ) ..Logical databases when generating an ABAP program o The selection screen generated contains the selections (SELECT-OPTIONS AND PARAMETERS) of both the logical database and the program.. o The only database-specific selections displayed on the selection screen are those needed by the program for data retrieval purposes Logical Database (Contd .

g.) are performed for the selection screen by the logical database and the program. etc.2. Logical Database (Contd . the system processes the events in the program and in the logical database in the following order o Before displaying the selection screen. ) . o The selection screen is displayed and the user enters data in the input fields. calculating default values such as key date... certain initializations (e. Logical databases at run-time of an ABAP program At run-time.

o In the event END-OF-SELECTION. importing files). o The logical database reads the selected data and the program processes it within the GET events according to the sequence specified by the structure. but also that the user has the appropriate authorizations. the ABAP program performs any concluding operations (for example. some fields are made ready for input again.. calculating totals. the ABAP program performs any preliminary work (for ex.e logical database and the program check that the input is correct and complete . Logical Database (Contd . If an error occurs. exporting files). o In the event START-OF-SELECTION.. ) . so that the user can make the necessary correction(s).

. Logical Database (Contd . each on a new line.. ) . The system automatically generates such a screen for each program that does not have its own selection screen entered in the attributes.· Designing the selection screens o The standard selection screen of a logical database has a standard layout where SELECT-OPTIONS and PARAMETERS appear in the sequence they are declared.

You cannot delete database selections Logical Database (Contd . The flow logic for such screens is also generated automatically and therefore cannot be modified... Any program-specific selections appear after the database selections. If the attributes of a program include the number of its own selection screen.o You can define your own selection screens for any logical database. ) . the system uses this screen as a model when generating.

Hourly wage earners in a particular personnel sub area.Functions of LDB: Data retrieval: The personnel data of each employee is loaded into the main memory where it can be accessed for processing.. .

Person selection defines those employees for whom a report is to be run.

) .. Authorization check: This ensures that the person starting the evaluation Is authorized to access the report data. Functions of LOB (Contd .the provide loop retrieves the infotype records whose validity period overlaps with at least one day of this period.The data selection period delimits the time period for which data is evaluated.. When you enter the data selection period.

Report class assignments are stored in table t599b or t599w. . Table t599b contains customer report classes and t599w the sap report classes.REPORT CLASS WITH LDB: You can change the layout of the selection screen by assigning classes to reports of the logical database PNP.This allows you to suppress the input fields which are not used. All reports without a report class are assigned the customer default report class '00000000' .Otherwise the sap default report class' 'is assigned.

Report Class With LOB (Contd ..through RP-REAO-INFOTYPE. You can also read the records of an infotype for a particular personnel number without using the logical database.. ) .either the customer default class(t599c) or the SAP default class(t599f) is used.If a report has no report class. All reports that use the logical database PNP automatically contains OBPNPCOM module.

GETPERNR: This event fills the data structures of declared infotypes with all records that exists for a personnel number. Data selection does not delimit the records that retrieved from the database. .

The data The data macro RP-PROVIOE-FROM-LAST retrieves the last(latest) record which is valid in the data selection period. . For every macro. macro RP-PROVIOE-FROM-FRST retrieves the first(start) record which is valid in the data selection period. If PNP-SW-FOUNO = 1 .
