Practical Issue #2: Building a Hierarchy

Hello Experts,

I am working on the following hierarchy and came up with some question I believe you can help me.








Countries: Holland, Canada, Nigeria

Regions : Americas, Europe, Africa

Profit Center: CenterNum, Unit, AAA, BBB, CCC

While trying to set this up, I encountered the following problems:

I created characteristics: Org, Region, Country, ProfitCenter. L left all options as default

except under Hierarchy tab, where I checked with Hierarchy; Time-dependent hierarchy structure, then activated for all.

The lowel level in the hierarchy (ProfiCenter) where data will be loaded from the flat file was not set as a hierarchy.


After creating the InfoObjects Org, Region, Country, ProfitCenter I created a hierarchy in the context of OrgStruc but on a reading from a book.

Any guide on where to start it?

There were also some options (Drilldown Start Level, Maintain Level), I think were important but I did not touch? Any hints?

I will post the remaining question(3) in a differnt post for purposes if point

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Amanda,

    These features you mentioned are important for hierarchy display during query execution.

    What is your question here? May be it is answered in Issue #1 and #3?

    Best regards,
