Issue - Speical case to add new field as nav. attribute

We have one report use infoobject A. Infoobject A has hierarchy(Infoobject B is superior A. -compounding). Now we want to have new infoobject C as same as A. Both have same records, but C will show only hierarchy in this report. I'm thinking of adding C into A as navi. attribute and mapping C with A in master attribute transfer rule. But, I wonder if there will cause any data incorrectness. Could anyone have a check and give some advise?

Many thanks,

rajatina.

    hi,

    The above scenario may work but you will have to show C as char in the report and show hierarchy of A, as you would not be able to load hierarchy for C. The performance is the only thing which will be effected.

      Hi ,

      Creating c as reference is a good thing and it will be helpful as you will not have data redundancy and as far as performance is concerned it will be affected at report level .
