Your role is to write HR programs given minimal information, often scribbled on the back of an envelope or a packet of cigaretters, from the functional "expert".

Or, more seriously, you need to understand the SAP HR module, and be able to write programs to extend it.

Hi,

Its much the same as any other module, to write abap programs. only difference is u tend to use a logical database(i.e. PNP) to retrieve your data, see following link for specific HR info and some examples http://www.sapdevelopment.co.uk/hr/hrhome.htm

hope this helps

Reward points if found helpful....

Cheers,

That is only true of certain sub modules of HR. Others, such as Payroll, require different techniques.

Hi this might help u.

HR deals with the INFOTYPES which are similar to Tables in General ABAP.

There are different ways of fetching data from these infotypes.

There are different areas in HR LIKE Personal Admn, Orgn Management, Benefits, Time amangement, Event Management, Payroll etc

Infotypes for these areas are different from one another area.

storing of records data in each type of area is different

LDBS like PNP are used in HR programing.

Instead of Select.. we use some ROUTINES and PROVIDE..ENDPROVIDE.. etc

and in the case of Pay roll we use Clusters and we Import and Export them for data fetching.

On the whole Normal ABAP is different from HR abap.

with regards,

Hema sundara.

pls give points if u find it helpful.

In ABAP HR you should have a clear knowledge abt infotypes.Because Infotypes rules HR which provides all the data to HR module.You can see from different modules for example the employee details are being fetched to HR module by this infotypes.

Regarding HR ABAP programming ,

http://www.sapdevelopment.co.uk/programs/custom/zp_postcode.htm

U can check the above program and can found out the diff in

Provide.... End provide..

And u can also see the infotypes associated in this program.

the rest is same as in ABAP.
