Concern regarding migration of Product Hierarchy - Upgrade from SRM 4 to 7


Hi SRM Gurus

We are upgrading from SRM 4.0 to SRM 7.0.

The client wants to completely realign the present Flat structure of Product category to a Hierarchy form. Unfortunately SAP doesn't provide any drag and drop feature in COMM_HIERARCHY application so that the exisiting categories can be realligned. Also if I create a new Hierarchy and manually create a new structure of Product Category in it and then assign the same to the Purchasing application in COMM_PRAPPLCAT then I cannot further process the Open Orders that have the Product Category referring to the Old Hierarchy.

The issue is to have a new set of Hierarchy and also to be able to process the existing Orders that referenced the category that were attached to the old hierarchy.

Any inputs would be highly appreciated.
