We have a situation: HR and the rest of the SAP modules including CATS are resided in different SAP instances....
We are trying to maintain all employee and contractor data in a centralized SAP HR system and send the bare minimum employee and contractor data to another SAP system via ALE to facilitate the CATS data entry. We have a particular problem with contractors in the HR system, specifically in info type 0315, where the PO information is not available in central HR instance. Do you have any solution on this issue? We hope to avoid entering employee data in one system and contractor data in another system. We are in SAP 4.6C. We had this same issue and solved it by creating external number range PO's in the HR instance to support IT0315. You only have a minimum of logistics config to create the PO in the HR system with the external number (from the logistics system) In 4.6 you must have a service line item on the PO to allow it to validate against the 0315.
I would recommend creating IT315 for everyone and continue the process of external number ranged. You could potentially sne all the same info including IT 315 to the other SAP environment via the ALE.
