Somehow, the transfer rules in Q/A system is producing an error message. The syntax error is only happening in Q/A but not in Dev or Production. What caused this, I do not know. The syntax error is, as follows:

E:"/BI0/HMATL_GROUP" must be a flat structure. Internal tables, strings,
references, and structures cannot be used as components.

The declaration of a variable is XXX like /BI0/HMATL_GROUP. The variable is intended to be hierarchical. Hence, the error message. The question is how to avoid this error message? I tried activating the transfer rules with the program

RS_TRANSTRU_ACTIVATE_ALL. The activation produces the above mentioned error message. How do I overcome this issue?

Could you please check the following KBA 1879618: Pre-upgrade measures for upgrade/update to 7.4.

After the upgrade to 7.5 BW on Hana, when we imported the hierarchy of an InfoObject the length of the NODENAME - RSSHNODENAME change from 60 a different number. We opened the system and all was good after that. Thank you for your reply. RAP

Hi Raul,

It's not clear if issue resolved with suggested 1879618 KBA or not.
