Hierarchy: Postable node (or not) in Flat file

Hello Experts,

I have read several times, the links you provided on this subject and they were very helpful but I am still stuck here:

If I am loading a hierarchy through a flat file, how do I specify which of these nodes are postable and which are not?

I know the Leave notes are postable, but my issue is with the various interval nodes

For example, in this Customer profit center hierarchy ....

NodeID | InfoObject Name| Node Name---- - | -- Link -| -ParentID | Child -|----Next ID

0001---- | 0Hier_Node | -- Customer -- |


|-- -0
|
2 -- -| -- 0 ---

0002---- | -0Country--


| -China
|

|

| -
|
----

0003---- | -???--


| 50000
|

|

| -
|
----

0004---- | -oRegion--


| RegB
|

|

| -
|
----

0005---- | -???--


| 60000
|

|

| -
|
----

0005---- | -???--


| 70000
|

|

| -
|
----

What I want to achieve in the flat file, is to place region and the profit center 5000 under country, and make the profit center 5000 postable but Region is not postable.

Also, under Region is RegB which is supposed to be NOT postable, but it has 2 profit centers under it, 6000 and 7000 which should be postable.

Root

-


Country---5000

-


Region

-


RegB---6000 / 7000

Any help on this flat file will be appreciated. Where I have ???, I only meant I have doubts but I think it should be 0ProfitCtr.

    Hi,

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand the concept "postable". Do you mean with "postable" that the node can be uploaded to the hierarchy?

    If that is the case, and you are having problems with 0country, 0region or 0profitctr, you need to add them to the "External characteristics in Hierarchies" option on the InfoObject.

    Go to the 0PROFITCTR infoobject, select Hierarchy tab and click on "External chars in Hierarchies". There, you should add 0country and 0region.

    Hope it helps,

    David.

      Hi,

      I believe now I understand better your question.

      From the link you sent I see that postable nodes are nodes that will have a value from the characteristic of which you are defining your hierarchy (you see an example at the end of the page you sent).

      Non postable nodes only group underlying nodes, but they won't have a value from the basic characteristic (in your case, 0PROFIT_CTR).

      The column "InfoObject name" is defining what kind of value will have the "Node Name" column. So, on the first column you establish types, while on the second you establish values.

      The infoobject column is ok, you only need to set 0PROFIT_CTR on the ???? marks.

      Maybe you can also check the provided links...

      Regards,

      David.
