Difference between hierarchy node and single value


Hi experts,

Can anyone explain me the difference between hierarchy node and single value?

This is my problem:

I have a query that uses a characteristic (0ORGUNIT) with a hierarchy and I execute it without any problem but when I try to set a fliter on this characteristic and I try to find a single value, for example 101, it doesn't appear in the single value list, instead it appears in the hierarchy nodes list in the selection window.

I think I'm confused about both terms because I thought a hierarchy node was always the one who has one or more values as its lower levels like this:

A. 10

A1. 100

A2. 101

A3. 102

A3.1. 1021

B. 11

I this case I thought , for example, 101 was a single value but not a hierarchy node so I must find it in the single values list in the selection window, however, 102 can be both and must appear in both lists, is it true?

Thanks in advanced
