Infotype operation means, the operation you want to perform on the infotype record.

This FM is used to do the operations on the infotype record.

For this the wa which you want to send to this FM should be of the Infotype Structure type.

Specify the Infotype number and if sub type exists specify the sub type and Employee Number and work area which you want to pass

After that if you want to Create a record then spend Infotype operation as INS or if you want to modify then that will be MOD, for delete use DEL.

Capture the return value from the Fm so that you can understand the error, if occured or if the operation is Success..
