Vendor Hierarchy on SAP IS Retail project

Hi Everyone,

Please can you help.

Has anyone implemented SAP Vendor Hierarchy in IS Retail and is there a tool for mass load processing of the Hierarchies as part of migration?

We have approximately 9000 hierarchies to take on but no standard tool ? Has anyone done aa ALE of the hierarchies to other SAP systems?

Your feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you

Pat

    Hi Pat,

    Did you get an answer to your question. Is their mass maintenance capability to mass change Vendor Hierarchy data? I mean as you said, the hierarchy data could get huge and manually maintaining 9000 vendor family set is next to impossible. I checked in XK99 and LFMH is not listed as a table default.

    Please let me know your thoughts!

    Thanks,

    Ashvin

      Thanks a lot Pat for your response. We are on ECC 6 Support pack 06. So these notes are already included in our support pack release. However, I do have a question related to the FAQ note.

      In that it states, that customers in Release 5.0 or higher should use the newly developed tcode MKH1N. I know MKH1N allows unlimited hierarchy levels whereas MKH1 allowed only 4 levels. But aside from this restriction, do you see any other downside in using MKH1 with release 606 or higher? I do like the display layout of vendor hierarchies in MKH1 better than MKH1N. I just don't understand how SAP does not have a mass maintain capability as maintaining a multiple tier hierarchy with thousands of vendors is just going to be manually impossible.
