Characteristics derivation in BPS

Hi there,

I want to make a characteristic derivation in a planning area. Product hierarchy and material group should be derived from material. Both characteristics are part of the transactional planning cube, both are attributes of the material, both are not contained in the planning level (there is not even one yet) - but only product hierarchy is available as attribute to be derived. Material group does simply not appear in the list of possible derivable attributes - as many other attributes of the material. Is there a reason for this - I could not find one so far. Shouldn't all attributes, that are characteristics in the cube be available for derivation?

Thanks

Markus

    Pls check if the attr that is not appearing a display attr or navigation attr.

    I think it is a display attr, if that is the case make it navigation attr.

    That was my first idea but it is not the reason. All attributes are for display only and product hierarchy is available for derivation, the other's are not.

    Thanks, Markus

    If material group and product hierarchy are attribute of material, just use a characteristic relationship derivation of type attribute with material as source / basic and product hierarchy and material group as target. Make sure product hierarchy and material group are not in the level.
