LSMW error with BAPI for loading Product Hierarchy Layout Areas (WWM2)

Having issue/errors with loading our product catalog via LSMW. We have spreadsheet listing a multilevel (layouts) product catalog. Does anyone know of limits or restrictions of the number of sub-layouts that reside at same level. I am noticing we cannot load more that 4 layout-areas under one layout area. I don't believe we have a nesting limit but our input spread sheet stops loading any layout after the 4th, then moves on the next hier level.

I am using LSMW Business Object Method (BAPI) as load with:

business object = BUS1071


message-type = PCHEAD

basic-type = PCHEAD01

I have already created the catalog (WWM1) and basic data, then we are loading these structures with valid values for the layout areas:

E1BPPCTWGLV -- Layout Area

E1BPPCTWGLVX -- Change Parameters for BAPIPCTWGLV

E1BPPCTWGLVT -- Layout Area Descripion


We will then proceed with loading items/materials under these areas but need this working first.

Here is a small sample of load file that is halfway successful. We have much more to load.

("TEST_006" is catalog, "14" is catalog layout-nbr, already created)


TEST_006 14 1 0 1 Cases and Supplies

TEST_006 14 2 1 1 By Case Type

TEST_006 14 3 2 1 Cardboard Shipping C

TEST_006 14 4 2 2 CubeCase

TEST_006 14 5 2 3 Exhibit Crate 24

TEST_006 14 6 5 1 External Straps

TEST_006 14 7 5 2 Inliten

TEST_006 14 8 5 3 Packing Folders

TEST_006 14 9 8 1 BasePlate

TEST_006 14 10 8 2 SkyTruss/Inliten

TEST_006 14 11 5 4 SkyTruss/ Engage/ Mo

TEST_006 14 12 5 5 TubeSystem

TEST_006 14 13 2 4 Fabric Bags

TEST_006 14 14 2 5 FlatPanel Cases

TEST_006 14 15 14 1 10-Panel

TEST_006 14 16 14 2 6-Panel

Those last three in bold above fail to get loaded.

Any help is much appreciated.
