How to create a hierarchy with postable notes

Hi all,

Please take e look at the following case:

In BPS we want to make a planning on groups of FI-GL-accounts. For the grouping of the GL-account we make use of the Financial Statement functionality in R/3. With a BC DataSource (0GL_ACCOUNT_T011_HIER) this Financial Statement is imported in BW as a hierarchy on InfoObject 0GL_ACCOUNT. As said, we do not want to make a planning on the GL-account but on the groups, i.e. the nodes of the hierarchy. We think in this case we need a BW hierarchy with postable nodes and make the planning on the inner nodes of the hierarchy.

So far so good, but when we execute the Manual planning the system responds with “Hierarchy xxxx does not contain any postable nodes” Anyone has a clue? Did we forget something?

Thx,

Henk van der Haar.

    Hi,

    you need to add a master data value for the GL-Account group, then insert that value as top level node under which you want to group the GL-Account, for ex:

    GL-Acc-GRP010 POSTABLE NODE

    GL00101

    GL00102

    GL00103

    GL-Acc-GRP020 POSTABLE NODE

    GL00201

    GL00202

    GL00203

    Go to the hierarchy and then select in choose 'GLACCOUNT' from the menu bar , a drop down of all GL-Account willbe displayed from that list please choose all the GL-Acc-GRPXX valuesa as the top level node , then choose ur GL Accounts under each group as shown above.

    hope this answers your question.

    cheers,

      you need to add a master data value for the GL-Account group in GL ACCOUNT info object, say for example let us call it as 'GL-Acc-GRPXX', then insert that value as top level node under which you want to group the GL-Account, for ex:

      GL-Acc-GRP010 POSTABLE NODE

      GL00101

      GL00102

      GL00103

      GL-Acc-GRP020 POSTABLE NODE

      GL00201

      GL00202

      GL00203

      Go to the hierarchy and then select in choose 'GLACCOUNT' from the menu bar , a drop down of all GL-Account will be displayed from that list please choose all the GL-Acc-GRPXX values as the top level node , then choose ur GL Accounts under each group as shown above.

      hope this answers your question.

    Hi Henk,

    For the hierarchy with postable nodes the nodes also have to be captured as characteristic values firstly. For more details refer to the document link below

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/biw/g-i/how to plan in bps using hierarchies with several characteristics.pdf

    Some useful threads also on the same.

    Hope it helps.

    Cheers
