Relationships are generally defined in two directions: A = bottom up and B = top down.

Example: relationship 003 ("incorporates/belongs to") is defined in the following two directions:

A003 'belongs to' and B003 'incorporates'

Each relationship for internal object types is also stored physically in both directions on the database.

Check HRP1001 table for more details.

Magesh,

In OM all relationships between the objects are maintained through A and B(Relationship Specification) plus the three digit number (Relationship Between Objects) where A is Bottom Up and B is Top down.

Relationship Specification will give you the direction of relationship in an hierarchy.

Hii,

In SAP there are different kinds of objects like organisational management, job, position and so on..

in order to get the relation ship between different objects,

we use two types of relation ships:

1.top down(B).

2.bottom up(A).

if u want to clear ur doubt regarding the relation ship between the objects go to transaction se11 and check the table T777V which contains all the relationship between objects and realtion names.

for example:

when we consider TOP DOWN : position assigned to person.

BOTTOM UP : position holder person.

In the above example, 'assigned to' and 'holder' are the relationships between two objects position and person..so in this way there are two approches where v can give the realtion ship between different objects.

Refer tables : HRP 1001 &

HRP 1000 for information on relation ships to have a clear idea.

AND in this two approches,

if the relation ship is 001 then for RELATION BOTTOM UP it will be IS A SUB-DIVISION OF

for RELATION TOP DOWN it will be IS SUB DIVIDED INTO.

if the relation ship is 002 then for RELATION BOTTOM UP it will be REPORTS TO

for RELATION TOP DOWN it will be IS LINE SUPERVISOR OF and so on....

I hope dis explanation will help you...
