hierarchy upload fails, "hierarchy does not exist"


i have a problem uploading a hierarchy in BI7. The name of the hierarchy is something like "taxreport".

i built up a dataflow, which loads the hierarchy from an ASCII flat file. it works fine in development and test systems. only after i transport it into the productive system i get an error message.

the dataflow kinda looks like this:


-> 3.x DataSource "ZFISS_HIER"

-> Transfer Rules "ZFISS_HIER"

-> InfoSource "Hierarchies ZFISS"

-> InfoObject "ZFISS"

to build this dataflow, i followed instructions on the sap help pages and modified them a little (since i didnt find any clear instructions for BI7).

anyway, it all works. only in the P system, i get this message:

"The hierarchy D256ZF6CY8LG04EGR247OC1EQ does not exist."

1. the name of the hierarchy is taxreport. where and why does the system look for the rather hieroglyphic name D256ZF6CY8LG04EGR247OC1EQ ?

2. i created the hierarchy "taxreport" with a dummy textnode. the upload should overwrite this dummy with the complete hierarchy from my flat file.

3. i cannot even look at the preview in the InfoPackage. same error message. the path for the flat file on my local workstation is correct.

any ideas?

      The file format is ASCII. Upload method is Idoc.

      Thanks Jerome,

      it seems that it is an authorization problem. su53 reveals that i am missing certain rights when i try to start the InfoPackage. i'll contact our administrator.
