Why do you use infotypes in HR ABAP programming, and how is it different from other modules?
Infotypes are the only way to pull current HR data from a screen in HR. Other modules only utilize screens; however, in HR the same screen can be utilized multiple times for different reasons (i.e. New Hire, Termination and Leave of Absence). ABAP programming must utilize Infotypes to capture accurate information.
