Relationship A742 (Indirect Reports To)



According to SAP help documentation,

"You can use the indirect relationship A742 (Indirectly Reports To) between the employee's position and the manager's position. This is derived from the relationship A003 (Belongs To) between the employee's position and the organizational unit and the relationship A012 (Manages#) between the manager's position and the organizational unit."

My questions are :

1. What does it mean by relationship A742 is derived from relationship A003/A012 ? Does it mean setting up relationship A003/A012 automatically sets the relationship A742 ? (I have created the relationship A003/A012, but checking the table HRP1001 shows no relationship A742 created).

2. When I try to create a relationship in txn. PO13 (Expert mode) between 2 positions with the relationship A742, system prompts "Relationship S A 742 S cannot be maintained using basic transaction". In that case, how do I actually maintain this relationship ?

Thank you.
