Hierarchy looks OK in MONITOR, but can't activate under InfoObject tree

Hello Experts,

I created a customer profit center hierarchy and load the hierarchy using a flat file.

Under Monitor, I get the Green light and when I double click on the Hierarchy, I get the diagram of the hierarchy, almost very much to what I am looking for.

The problem is that when I go to the InfoObject tree, I see the Hierarchy under it is not activated. When I try to activate it, I get the error message “Hierarchy contains no data”

I also went into the customer infoobject, Maintain master, and there appears to be nothing in it.

What seems to be going on?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi sapuser sap,

    That means your hierarchy which you loaded does not modify the already existing hierachy and is already active. Hence there are no issues. You can use it in your reports.

      Hello Expert,

      i am glad to see a mirror of my problem being discussed, I followed your guide and my hierarchy was not listed. In fact, no hierarchy was listed there.

      Does is mean there are no hierarchies on this system?

      Any way, on my specific case, I don't understand what you meant by

      "...means your hierarchy which you loaded does not modify the already existing hierachy and is already active.... You can use it in your reports."

      In my case, it is the first attempt that Monitor did not give an error so there is no prior existance of this hierarchy.

      When you say that it is ready for reports, what did you mean? Was the purpose of "loading hierarchy by flat files" just to creae the structure of the hierarchy ?

      Or, to pupulate the nodes of the hierarchy with the master data?

      Or, i now have to populate each node with the master data? If so, then I think the entire process does not save time at all? Your thoughts?

      Thanks in advance.

    Hi Amanda,

    Goto RSA1 -> Tools -> Apply Hierachy/Attr Change -> Click Hierachy List button. You would find your hierarchy there. Select and activate it.

    Hi Amanda,

    <i>"...means your hierarchy which you loaded does not modify the already existing hierachy and is already active.... You can use it in your reports."</i> - What I meant was in the case of sapuser sap he might have reloaded the hierarchy or there was no change in the hierarchy data since the last load. So his hierarchy would not need to be activated and can be used directly in reports.

    <i>In my case, it is the first attempt that Monitor did not give an error so there is no prior existance of this hierarchy.

    When you say that it is ready for reports, what did you mean? Was the purpose of "loading hierarchy by flat files" just to creae the structure of the hierarchy ?

    Or, to pupulate the nodes of the hierarchy with the master data?

    Or, i now have to populate each node with the master data? If so, then I think the entire process does not save time at all? Your thoughts?</i> - The hierarchy would contain the master data and you would not populate the nodes again. The hierarchy would be used to display the transcational (Cube) data in the hierarchial format you had defined in the hierarchy. Hope I have made things clear.

    Bye
