Customer Hierarchy in BW

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hello Experts!

I need to load Customer hierarchies in BW from ECC.

I read the messages on this forum and learned that there are 2 customer related datasources:

0CUST_SALES_LKDH_HIER and 0CUSTOMER_LKLS_HIER

I don't get any data in rsa3 for 0CUSTOMER_LKLS_HIER. I have to chose the Customer Class.

I get data in rsa3 for 0CUST_SALES_LKDH_HIER and that matches KNVH data in ECC.

0CUST_SALES_LKDH_HIER will map to 0CUST_SALES, right? So is that ok if I use this datasource to bring customer hierarchies into BW?

Or should I use 0CUSTOMER_LKLS_HIER. In that case, how do I get that populated in ECC? I need functional person's help, right?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,

this hierarchies are for two different infoobjects:

- 0CUST_SALES_LKDH_HIER: for 0CUST_SALES (see in your ERP table KNVV)

- 0CUSTOMER_LKLS_HIER: for 0CUSTOMER (see in your ERP table KNA1)

it's depend on your infocube.

do you have 0cust_sales in your infocube.

0cust_sales is compounded with 0salesorg, 0division and 0distr_chan.

=> you can have the same customer number in different sales organizations - also two times in the hierarchie.

=> so, you can't exchange this two hierarchy. you the other infoobject.

What you want to display customer view or sales view?

Hi Sven -

Thank you for the response.

I would need to display the Customer in my report and have Customer in my infocube.

Thanks!

There are three kinds of customer Master Data that we most often use- Customer General data- KNA1, Customer Sales Area data- KNVV, and customer company code data- (check for tables).

Check for the reporting requirement, Identify the tables and check for standard datasources, the hierarchies you are talking about are- for general, and sales area hierarchies.

If in your requirement if you have identified customer master general hierarchy, from kna1, but you do not have any data in it- then that hierarchy is not maintained in the source system.

Do not use the sales area hierarchy.

I hope this is helpful.

and if you have the requirement that identify the table as knvv- then use customer sales area hierarchy, not the customer general hierarchy.

Hi,

can you insert 0cust_sales in your infocube?

then you need also the chars: 0salesorg, 0division and 0distr_chan.

=> do you have sales data in your cube - can you mapping this chars?

Or, you have to create a customer hierarchy in your ERP.
