Hierarchie load from Flat file


1) I installed 0HIER_NODE but I can not see this infoobject in RSA14. But I can see 0HIER_TYPE. Is this the cause for the failure of data load from flat file? 'Coz in the sample flat file in the forums, there is 0HIER_NODE. I could not find any sap note on this.

2) How does data look in a hierarchy? For 0CUST_SALES_TID_LKDH_HIER, I see 6 records in RSA3, but I don't 6 records in hirearchy in BI.

3) I don't see manage option for any of the hierarchy datasources, and don't see PSA icon from InfoPackage. How to check the data?

    Hierarchies are usually loaded as an iDoc ... and PSA is not used for the same. Also RSA3 is for Hierarchies in R/3 and you are confusing the same with fllat file.

    Once you set it to iDoc you will be ale to see the file structure in the transfer rule area..

    As for how to load - please search the forums for the same...

      I figured it out. In the InfoPackage External Data tab, for Number of Header Rows to be Ignored, I entered one and it worked fine. The reason for this is: in the flat file, the header row has a field 'InfoObject' and title was not recognized by the infopack. Thanks again. Assigned points.

    I dont think thats the reason for your load failure... What error are you getting when you load the data??

    There is no manage option for Hierarchy... Not does it load into PSA.. If you chk in the InfoPackage, you will see ALE Inbox and InfoObject only.. THere is no option for PSA...

    Just go to InfoObjects tab and find your infoobject there, you will see the hierarchy under it...
