InfoObjects (hierarchy tab) change to data elements of string type?

In our BW 7.4 system, we tend to have something strange happening. Every once in a while the 0CostCenter and 0CostElmnt hierarchy tables 'H' and 'J' appear with data elements that are a string type with a length of 1333. This causes loads to fail and we have to fix it via an access key and opening the system.

Can anyone tell me how this is happening in a closed system where no one is using ABAP programs to manually activate the InfoObjects?

Many thanks!

    Hi Kurt,

    As the standard type and length is a STRING 1333 as of the 740, you'd better stay with it and deal with the loading issue rather than revert it to a CHAR.

    • Can you possibly tell me how to read a hierarchy into a structure, cursor, internal table, etc... with this new fangled hierarchy thing? :)

      Thank you,

      Kurt
