Hi people,

I have created a hierarchy in bw.It goes like this.


I am working on planning for a product which has its presence in 4 regions(north,south,east,west) .Each region comprise of 3 states.

I was able to create a hierarchy in bw successfully.But come across a problem while using that in sem-bps.It says link node not available or no sub-hierarchy.

Can anyone give me the clear steps of using the hierarchies created in bw to be implemented in sem-bps.

If anyone want further details on this,please mail me at

Appreciate sooner response.

    Dear Ragav,

    when creating hierarchies in BW you are able to use features that are not supported by BPS - link nodes are one of them.

    The BPS How to paper 'Hierarchies in Several Characteristics' gives you a step by step instruction.

    Follow link => BI

      Dear Ragav,

      according to the data model described you need to post data on the combination of all three characteristics. Hence the layout technically needs all three characteristics in the lead column. As a consequence you have only two options:

      - go via characteristic relations

      - use the option to display subtotals in hierarchy structure.

      Regards, Olaf
