Infotype is used to store personal data about an employee. An Infotype contains four digit code and name of Infotype.

Example − Infotype 002 contains employee personal data- like name, date of birth, marital status, etc.

Each Infotype has two fields −

  • Mandate fields − A tick mark sign in the field box represents these fields.

  • Option fields − These fields are not mandatory and can have a blank value.

There are predefined number ranges that SAP has defined for Infotype.

  • HR and Payroll Data Infotype → 0000 to 0999

  • Organizational Data → Infotype 1000 to 1999

  • Time Data → Infotype 2000 to 2999

You can further divide an Infotype into groups, which are called subtypes. For example, an Infotype Address, Infotype 0006 can be divided into subtypes - Permanent Residence and Emergency address.
