you cannot send IDocs thru PFAL transaction.

you can send HR Master Data thru PFAL.

yes you can send the Pernrs as they are Components of Organizational Elements.

Here is the Procedure to send Personal Numbers:

1.Execute the transaction PFAL.

2.Give the object type as P.

3.Give the Pernr values in Object ID field

4.Select the transfer mode as Update

5.In the Receiving Partner give your receiver name

6.Give the message type as HRMD_A in the Message Type field.

7.Dont change the remaining values.Keep it as such.

8.Execute the Program.

Also keep in mind that while sending the HR data you need to follow the certain sequence

unless otherwise your data wont be replicated successfully.

Here is the sequence O,S,P and C.

Means before sending P you should send O and S.
