Two kinds of variant red errors in process chain

1. For Hierarchy variant, the log msg says "Select a hierarchy"

2. Two variant with description as "Value Type for Reporting Text" and "Country Text". If I right click and select Maintain Variant, can't bring me to the variant maintenance screen, in stead, the status bar shows that "Attributes are not yet maintained". The log msg says:


The attributes have either not yet been created or activated.

The data cannot be taken from the source system without maintained

attributes. Therefore, this data request is not possible.


Maintain the attributes for this master data-InfoSource in the

Administrator Workbench and then activate them.

I go to RSA1 -> InfoObject view, search for Country Text, but can't find this InfoObject for "Country Text". I can find the infoObject 0VYPE for "Value Type for Reporting" here, but since our Development box is gone and we can only use test system that I can only display this InfoObject, the version shows it's "Active" and the Oject Status shows "Active, executable". It seems that this InfoObject has been activated already, right?

How to resolve these two kinds of red errors?

    1. For the hierarchy extraction, you need to choose the hierarchy in the InfoPackage. Maintain the Hierarchy variant. It should open InfoPackage. On the "Hierarchy Selection" tab, choose the hierarchy which you need to extract. If you dont see any hierarchies there, click on refresh "Available Hierarchies from OLTP" button.

    2. Check your transfer rules. Go to RSA1-> InfoSources. Locate 0VTYPE & 0COUNTRY. Check the source sys assignments & trf rules for them.

    Let us know if you have any issues.
