Not able to view Characteristic Hierarchy using Tcode KES3

Hi everyone,

I need to view the Characteristic Hierarchy using T-code KES3 in CO-PA. Ideally, once we are into KES3 screen, we need to select the characteristic and variant to display the hierarchy. But, when I select the characteristic and variant, it says that "Hierarchy doesn't exist".

However, when I create a report for that particular characteristic using T-code KE31, I am able to view the hierarchy for that characteristic there.

Can anyone please help me in this regard that why the characteristic hierarchy is not available in KES3, while it's picking up the hierarchy at the time of report creation.

Thanks.

Regards,

Gaurav Tibrewal

    Are you selecting the variant from the drop-down list and not entering it manually?

    Hi Nikolas and Ajay,

    I am entering variant manually since even after selecting Char First on the left side, there is no drop-down list available for variant.

      Hi Gaurav,

      what characteristic are we talking about? Not all hierarchies that are available in CO-PA reports are specific CO-PA hierarchies that can be maintained with KES1-KES3. For example you can use the customer hierarchy from SD in CO-PA reports but it cannot be viewed in KES3. There may be other such cases that I'm not aware of.

    Hi Nikolas,

    I want to see the hierarchy of "Business Unit" characteristic. This characteristic is being maintained under "Referenced Characteristic" in T-code KE31. This characteristics is being maintained in Profitability Analysis (T-code KEA5).

    Also, I am not able to derive the source where the hierarchy is being maintained for that characteristic. Because, if hierarchy is coming while creating CO-PA reports. they must be maintained somewhere.

    Please let me know if you need any further input.

    Regards,

    Gaurav
