Analysis 1.4 Hierarchy leaf node auto de-selects

Former Member

We are in the process of evaluating the suitability of Analysis for Office version 1.4 for replacement of our BEx 3.5 product and have encountered an issue in the handling of hierarchies in Excel.   When we de-select a leaf node of a hierarchy, it  automatically de-selects all of the parent nodes and they cannot be re-selected without re-selecting the leaf node.  This is for the Fund Center hierarchy where there can be postings at all levels of the hierarchy so we do not want the parents de-selected.  Have you seen this issue or heard anything from SAP on it?   It seems that most people are encouraging the Analysis for Office route vs moving to BEx 7.0, but BEx 7.0 seems more stable at this point.

Hi Suresh,

same here as on (your?) the other posting:

What is the workflow here exactly?

Sharing screenshots is always useful for a better understanding.

Attached is the screenshot that clearly shows how when we select a leaf node in the hierarchy all the parents accociated to that child gets deselected.

Scrrenshot attached clearly shows that.

First Screen shot shows that we deselecting leaf node WBG1/8041 .

In the second screenshot ,  all the parents associated to the deselected leaf node postings are missing. Clearly marked them in yellow color for your reference.

Hi Suresh,

that is not exactly what I personally would expect, quote from the User Guide:

"If you deselect a node in a hierarchy, all leaf members of this node are deselected automatically. The parent members of the deselected node are still selected, but the background color of the check box changes to gray. That shows you that not all leaf members of this node are selected for filtering."

I do not know if there is an error in the documentation or in the behavior of the tool. Hopefully others will comment on this thread, or else you can double check with a support engineer.

Best regards,
