    Hi

    From SAP HELP

    Hierarchical Data Transfer

    Definition

    You can maintain data at a high level within a hierarchical object structure. The system will automatically transfer the data changes to the levels below that are affected.

    The maintenance planner group is changed for the clarification plant described in Functional Location. The employee responsible for maintaining the master data makes the change to the master record of the highest functional location C1 and saves the changes. The system automatically makes the same change for all affected functional locations below the functional location C1, and issues a message to inform the employee of these changes.

    Horizontal Data Transfer

    Definition

    With horizontal data transfer you can differentiate between:

    • Data transfer from reference location to functional location

    • Data transfer from functional location to installed piece of equipment

    The ABC indicator of the functional location C1-B02-1 "Ventilator" is to be changed for several clarification plants.

    The employee responsible for maintaining the master data makes the change in the master record of the reference functional location and saves the entries.

    The system automatically makes the same change for all affected functional locations that were assigned to this reference location and for the pieces of equipment that are installed at these locations. The system then issues a message informing the employee of the changes.
