The Period selection allows you to view records within a certain date range identified by the user or enter the effective dates from here when creating a new infotype record. The Period selection is available in multiple transactions. For this example, we will use PA20 (Display HR Master Data), however this function is also available in many other areas of the system

  1. Step 1

    Enter PA20 in the Command Field and click the Enter button.

    TIPS:
      • Period – Allows the user to identify an exact date range
      • Today – Everything up to today
      • All – Allows the user to view all records
      • From curr.date – today forward
      • Remaining Period Selection options do not function as expected.
  4. Step 4

    Click the box to the left of the desired infotype.

  5. Step 5

    Select the desired function from the Application Toolbar (ie. Display, Change, Copy, Delimit, or Delete).
