 Communication (Infotype 0105)

You store an employee’ communication ID in the Communication infotype (0105).

An employee’s communication ID is valid for a certain type of communication (such as ERP system, Internet). The standard system contains the following communication types as subtypes:

  • Active SAP System

    Caution Caution

    The key for the subtype in the active system must always correspond to the subtype key that you entered in Customizing for Start of the navigation path Personnel Managementunder Global Settings for Personnel Management Next navigation stepDialog Control Next navigation stepIndicate Active Communication System. End of the navigation path

    End of the caution.
  • SAP2

  • Netpass

  • TS01

  • Fax

  • Voice-mail

  • Internet address

  • Credit card number(s)

The Communication infotype (0105) performs the following tasks:

  • It stores the system user name that is necessary for using SAP-Business-Workflow and SAP-Office. The user name that was set up in the subtype for the active SAP system is used for both of these applications.

  • It stores an employee’s communication data, for example the fax number or the Internet address.


Here, you enter the communication type (such as ERP system, Internet) and the employee’s communication ID for the communication type.

Subtype 0011 (Credit Card Number for Credit Card Clearing)

You must store the employee’s credit card number in the system for credit card clearing so that items booked on a credit card can be assigned to personnel numbers.

Because subtype 0011 ( Credit card numbers ) has time constraint 3, several entries can be available at any one time. This can be especially useful if an employee has several credit cards (or credit cards from different credit card companies).

To distinguish the credit cards from different credit card companies from each other, the first two positions of the ID/number field have been defined with an ID code that corresponds to the individual credit card companies.

These identification codes are:

  • AX (American Express)

  • DI (Diners Club)

  • EC (Euro Card)

  • TP (Lufthansa AirPlus)

  • VI (Visa)
