When i am trying to create the second level hierarchy 00010001, system is giving error "Please create the preceding node first".

Please help me how to create further levels.

      Hi Bala,

      Yes you can increase the level upto 9 in SAP.

      please follow the steps:

      1. Create an appropriate domain in the Data Dictionary (type CHAR with the required length).

      2. Assign these domains to the standard data elements PRODH1, PRODH2, ..., PRODH9. Please note that you should use these standard data elements.

      3. Change the structure PRODHS by creating or deleting fields with reference to the data elements. Choose ZZPRODHN as field name, where n is the position of the field in the structure PRODHS.

      Say, if You want to change the structure of the product hierarchy from 5/5/8 digits to 5/5/5/3. Proceed as follows:

      Create the following domains: ZPRODH3 with length 5, category CHAR,

      ZPRODH4 with length 3, category CHAR,

      Change structure PRODHS: Strucutre PRODHS in the standard system:

      Structure Fields Data element Category Length PRODHS -> PRODH1 PRODH1 CHAR 5 PRODH2 PRODH2 CHAR 5 PRODH3 PRODH3 CHAR 8

      Changes according to example: Structure Fields Data element Category Length PRODHS -> PRODH1 PRODH1 CHAR 5 PRODH2 PRODH2 CHAR 5 PRODH3 PRODH3 CHAR 5 ZZPRODH4 PRODH4 CHAR 3

      Please take help of ABAPer for this config.

      Thanks,

      Raja

    Bala.

    If u are creating this by V/76, then In V/76 you can only enter one product hierarchy at a time.

    Therefore you will need to save after the entry of each level before entering the next level.

    So enter the first node, save, then exit the screen.

    Now re-enter and enter the second-level nodes.

    Thanks,

    Raja

    Dear Raja,

    I tried that way. After saving i came out then i entered the second level.. even then it is giving the same error.

    I think the problem is due to the number of digits. i am trying to create by using 4 digits. But in the system by default it is coming 5 digits for each level.

    Please guide me.

    Thanks & Regards

    Bala

      Bala,

      Standard System can take only 3 levels of Hiearchy.

      In standard product hierarchy is structured via data dictionary structure PRODHS

      The first level will have 5 digits,

      The second level will have 5 digits,

      And third level can have max 8 digits.

      Thanks,

      Raja
