There are manny tools, you must give more information on your context (where/how is the hierarchy maintained in source system)

To build one from scrap/flat file/customer rule, read Loading Hierarchies from Flat File using the new DataSource and Transformation Technology and adapt.

Use search tools (google, SAP launchpad) there are many blogs/wiki/discussion.

Hi Ray,

We are dealing with WBS Hierarchy datasource right now, in which we need to filter out some projects. So to fulfill this, we have made custom made FM and view and now we need to make custom made extractor to load this hierarchy.

So now can you suggest some steps or any T-code?



  • Generate a supported hierarchy (like the one maintained by GS* transaction) in ECC with your code, then use transactions like BW07.
  • Code the generation of a 'flat file' output that you then map in BW to the hierarchy (structure NODEID INFOOBJECT NODENAME LINK PARENTID LANGU TXTSH TXTMD TXTLG)
  • Use some standard hierarchy and use RSAP0001/EXIT_SAPLRSAP_004 to change its results (e.g. C_T_HIENODE)
