Transferring a Person

You can only change an existing organizational assignment by using Organizational Management transactions (see Integrating Organizational Management with Personnel Administration).

However, the Personnel Administration events Transfer and Leaving are exceptions to this rule, as the required actions take place in both Personnel Administration and Organizational Management. When a transfer takes place, you are required to specify a new position.

If an employee is transferred to a non-integrated area (see the PLOGI feature), the system delimits the employee’s position relationship in Organizational Management, and records the new organizational assignment in infotype 0001.

If a transfer takes place on the start date of an infotype 0001 record, and if the transfer does not involve a change of company code, personnel sub-area, employee group or subgroup, you must make an entry on the screen for infotype 0001 to display the dialog box in which the new position is specified.
