How to Create infotype views through pm01

Former Member

I need to create a view for infotype 21. There is a tab for creating infotype views in pm01 transaction. but not sure how to use it. There are fields such as 'additional IT' and 'View'. Not sure what needs to be filled in these fields. I have created the structure for my view(PS0955). Can somebody help me out with this?

I do not know exactly what you mean with 'create a view'. One thing is that you can customize the standard infotype 21 through transaction SPRO. The PM01 transaction is used for enhancing infotypes and creating new infotypes.

Well what I meant by view was to create a new infotype but it won't be maintained in standard way through pa30. It is basically a view (infotype with some subscreen) that will be called on existing infotype screen (in my case IT0021). So instead of modifying the standard infotype 21 screen I can append my desired fields to this through view.

Well my issue now has been resolved. But now I have yet another issue.

I want to create my own screen for existing infotype. For that I know that I have to copy the existing standard screen 2000 and rename it to some other number. However, i want to know what is the exact procedure. What are the other steps involved with it. Any body can help?
