Using Hierarchy levels in Webi charts and tables


I am building a webi report that incorporates our HR employee structure.

The Webi report is told to bring data for 'Level 1 and 2' of the hierarchy for the employee ID requesting the data.


Employee A

Employee A1

Emp A1a

Emp A1b

Employee B1

Emp B1a

Emp b1b

If report runs for A, then return A, A1, B1.

If reports runs for A1, then return A1, A1a, A1b


If I use the hiearchy in the Table of results for A1.. I can get everything looking nice. However, If I then run for A, I get one line in the table...A's data.

No hiearchy present i the table. Sometimes the table is blank.

Same is true if running for B1.

We are running the initial 4.0 SP4 build. Has any one seen this? know if its corrected in later builds?

    Hi Jim,

    What is your reporting database ?

    you can have a block defined in webi by restricting 2 levels of data (3 columns : 1 is for Employee ,2nd is for Level 1 and 3rd for Level 2).

    • This is BW data.

      No need to restrict in Webi, the BW data is only 2 levels. It is just which 2 levels...

      In the example above:

      The whole hierarchy is 3 levels, however when the user authorization runs, BW is asked to return Levels 1 and 2 based on the user ID. so technically.. it is sometimes Level 1, 2, sometimes level 2 and 3. sometimes only level3 (if lowest level user ID is run)

      I am thinking the Level selector is not knowing how to handle this movement up and down the hierarchy..
