Payroll Infotypes for reporting purposes…

PAYROLL  Infotypes:

Most Human Resource data is stored in infotypes. You can report on this data using

standard reporting procedures (Adhoc Query or SAP Query). Payroll results,

however, are stored in cluster tables. You can only report on them using specific

standard reports or reports you have programmed yourself (that is, using the ABAP


To evaluate payroll results in the same way as other HR data, you can set up payroll

info-types. Preconfigured payroll info-types are available for this or you can define you own.

The basic principle of payroll infotypes (PIT) involves defining an infotype whose

specific fields correspond to the results of one or more wage types in Payroll.

To enable the results of (technical) wage types to be aggregated, evaluation wage

types (EWT) are defined in an intermediate step. They are used to define the payroll infotypes.


Wage types EWT PIT

/101 (Gross/Employee) Gross/ER-EWT Gross/ER-PIT

/262 (Gross/Social Contribution/ER)

Technical wage types /101 and /262 are both written to evaluation wage type

Gross/ER-EWT. In this case, the payroll infotype Gross/ER-PIT only contains

this evaluation wage type.

You set up payroll info-types in Customizing for HR Information Systems. In the

Implementation Guide, choose:

Personnel Management → HR Information System → Payroll Results.

You can only use entries from the customer namespace (9nnn) as

infotype numbers.

      Thanks for your posting. It provides a good high level summary.

      I have one question for you - based on the example illustrated, can I use 9580 which accumulates /101 for all countries. I am currently trying to configure such that /101 is cumulated for all employees irrespective of the payroll country to be in one infotype however its been challenging. Since V_T52IA does not have MOLGA as a key, everytime I generate for one country, it overrides the other.

      Appreciate your help if I am overlooking something
