Transport of Hierarchy including Balance Dependency



we have to transport a hierarchy in a 3 Tier Landscape from Dev to QA to Prod. We're not allowed (by the customer) to load hierarchies from one BI system (Release: BI 7.0) to another. So, in my opinion, the only way to get the hierarchy data to the additional systems is by csv (flat file) using Z_SAP_HIERARCHY_DOWNLOAD (you can't transport hierarchies by a transport request).

The main issue: This hierarchy includes some nodes with balance dependency. This characteristic is not included in the standard download and upload process and you can't enhance the InfoSource. As consequence, the balance dependency won't be considered when uploading to the further systems.

Can anyone help me with this problem?

Thank you in advance!

Note: we can't upload the hierarchy from the ECC source system because they're using sets instead of hierarchies and they can't define linked nodes in the ECC.
