How do I upload a network hierarhcy into SAP BW?


I am trying to import a large network hierarchy with "link nodes" into SAP BW.

I'm new to SAP, and BW 7.0 is all I know. However, apparently, you can't use the new 7.0 concepts and methods to import hierarchies. You must use older 3.5 methods, including a 3.5 InfoSource.

I found some instructions at

Which documents how do import hierarchies using 3.5 mechanisms in version 7.0.

Unfortunately, I am unable to follow these steps. I create the 3.5 InfoSource, and the docs say:

"Choose InfoSource Tree ® Your Application Component ® Your InfoSource ® Assign Source System."

However, I see no option to "Assign Source System" anywhere. Also, when I create the 3.5 InfoSource, I see the target InfoObject show up in the InfoSources tree, but I don't see a InfoSource object show up in the InfoSources tree. I'm not sure what to do.
