Hi Experts,

i can't find my costcenter in master data table /BI0/PCOSTCENTER after their loading. When i go to maintain the master data through the button maintain i can see the costcenter there. But i can't see it in the table /BI0/PCOSTCENTER. In order to create the costcenter in the table /BI0/PCOSTCENTER i have to go to the table for maintaining the costcenter master data. I have to select the costcenter and go to change it. I don' change it clicking ok and then i have to save the master data and then i can see it in the table /BI0/PCOSTCENTER. When the user call the costcenter hierarchy they see for example something like that:

#/Text of costcenter. The key is #. Does anyone have an idea what the problem is?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best Regards,

Hi Alians,

First of all check if cost center hierarchy has been loaded properly or not. You can use t-code KSH3 in R/3 to check the cost center hierarchy, from here check that whatever cost center hierarchy is maintained here is reflecting in your BW. After loading the master data of cost center make sure that you activate it.

User is seeing # because master data was not loaded. After loading the master data you need to load the transactional data again. After successfuloading of master data problem of # will be resolved.

Hope it will help.

Hi Ali:

Did you activate the Master Data for the 0COSTCENTER InfoObject after loading the new data?

If not, try this:

1. Activate Master Data.

- Right click on 0COSTCENTER InfoObject and select the "Activate master data" option.

2. Execute Change Run.

- Click on the "Tools" menu and select the "Apply Hierarchy/Attribute Change..." option, click on the "InfoObject" button, select the 0COSTCENTER InfoObject if available, click the "save" button. Click on the "Execute" button.
