Mapping problem with Multiple destination values

Hi,

I recently started to work on SAP MDM as a beginner. I am posting this message to get some help to solve the problems that I encountered as I run the SAP.

For example, we can sub-categorize a 'Product' as Food>ProcessedFood>Frozen Food>Pizzas'. However, notice that there exist the sameNode name under the 'Commodity' as following two categories show.

Product>Food>Processed Food>Frozen Food>Pizzas

Commodity>Food>Processed Food>Frozen Food>Pizzas

The Node name, 'Pizzas', under two different categories has fewattributes such as A, B, C, and D. When I tried mapping these attributes at Map Field/Values Tab under the import manager, I ended up getting warning messages due to the overlapping.

The message says "One or more of the source values were mapped to multiplz destination values. Some of the mapped destination values may need to be unmapped before performing the import."

Does anyone have an idea to solve this overlapping problem?

I will really appreciate your answer.

    Hi,

    As per my understanding, there are two categories as shown by you

    Product>Food>Processed Food>Frozen Food>Pizzas

    Commodity>Food>Processed Food>Frozen Food>Pizzas

    and you want to link Attributes with specific correct Category say Product not with Commodity. So in order to avoid overlapping, try using option Split Hierarchy. For more details Please refer below Article: refer page 11-15/20
