    Hi Partha,

    To my knowledge there is no standard SAP report for P/H. You can develop your own report using SIS. At the same time, for Customer Hierarchy we have a STD REport t/ code VDH1.

    Detail information on Product Hierarchy is given below for your understanding with examples.

    The product hierarchy is used to group materials by combining different features. It is used for analyses and pricing. A product hierarchy can consist of up to Eighteen characters. Its features can be combined in various ways.

    Example: A dishwasher can be described by product hierarchy 00010000200000002. This series of characters states that dishwashers belong to the category electrical appliances (series of characters 00001, position 1-5), and also to wet appliances (series of characters 00002, position 6-10) and, finally, to dishwashers (series of characters 00000002, position 11-18).

    One can maintain the product hierarchy via transaction "OVSV" and "V/76.

    Path = IMG-Logistics General-Material master-Setting for Key fields-Data relevant to SD-Define Product hierarchy.

    The product hierarchy is maintained in the Basic Data view of the material master record, and is used for evaluation as well as price determination in materials management.

    The standard SAP allows only 3 levels, but you can go up to 6 levels, for additional 3 levels u will have to take abapper help and add 3 more fields and corresponding data element into structure. So that in material master drop down you will see 6 levels.

    The transaction which will be useful to change product hierarchies for material master will be V/76.

    Yes, You can print the levels of the product hierarchy through a report.

    Use the view V_T179 to display Product hierarchy with level numbers.

    Hope the above info would be useful to you.
