To access the extraction settings, click [Extraction Settings] in the main window of the component. The window “Hierarchy Settings” opens.
Extraction Settings #
- ParentChild: The Hierarchy is represented in the SAP parent-child format, see Output Formats: ParentChild. Example:
- Natural: The SAP parent-child Hierarchy is transformed into a regular hierarchy, see Output Formats: Natural. Example:
- ParentChildWithNodeNames: The Hierarchy is represented in a reduced SAP parent-child format that only includes single nodes and their parent, see Output Formats: ParentChildWithNodeNames. Example:
Remove Leading Zeros:
If this option is active, all leading zeros in the column NodeName of the leaves are removed. NodeName can then be used in a JOIN-condition with the corresponding Dimension-Key of a BW Cube extraction.
The conversion works for compound InfoObjects, too. Example: 0CO_AREA (1000) and 0COSTCENTER (0000003100) become 1000/3100.
Fetch description texts:
Sets the node text in the column NodeText based on the system language settings.
Natural Settings #
Note: the subsection Natural Settings is only active, when the Representation is set to Natural.
Defines the maximum number of levels. The following example shows a Hierarchy with four levels.
Returns only the leaves as data records.
Fill empty levels:
Copies the bottom element of the Hierarchy until the last level. The following example depicts the previously shown Hierarchy with the activated Repeat Leaves option.
Description texts for levels:
Sets the output field LevelTextN for each field LevelN containing the text based on the system language settings.
Enable Debug Logging:
Adds more detailed logs for the Hierarchy component to the extraction logs. Activate Enable Debug Logging only when necessary e.g., upon request of the support team.
