Department/Staff (Infotype 1003)


Infotype with which you can allocate a staff indicator to organizational units and positions, or flag organizational units as departments.


You use the Department/Staff infotype solely for organizational units and positions. It has the following functions:

  • It allows you to apply a Staff flag to organizational units and positions

A staff flag indicates that an organizational unit or position is not part of the normal reporting structure at your company, but rather reports directly to a high-level position or organizational unit.

  • It allows you to apply a Department flag to organizational units

It is necessary to apply department flags only when integration is active between Personnel Planning and Personnel Administration. If integration is active, certain data records from Personnel Planning are written to Personnel Administration. For this, you must enter which organizational units represent departments, so that the corresponding data is transferred. (Organizational units do not necessarily represent departments. They can also represent teams or groups within a department.)

If your company uses department flags, you must maintain the entries PPABT PPABT in table T77S0 for the flags to operate properly. For further information, see the Implementation Guide (IMG) under Organizational Management -> Integration -> Integration with Personnel Administration -> Set Up Integration with Personnel Administration.

You do not have to create this infotype. You can maintain this infotype using Infotype Maintenance, by creating infotype records one object at a time. Or, you can work in Simple Maintenance, where procedures are streamlined. See Further Attributes

If you want to create this infotype, you can run reports that list all objects with the staff indicator. The RHXSTAB0 report (Staff Functions for Organizational Units) lists all flagged organizational units, and the RHXSTAB1 report (Staff Functions for Positions) lists all flagged positions.
