1618317 - Getting error "Command failed; end position is out of record index" when loading hierarchy in BPC 7.5 NW


  • Load a hierarchy from BW into BPC NW 7.5 using data manager package "Import BW Master Data HIR". The master data import with text nodes completed successfully, it is the Hierarchy import which is failing.
  • Error is generated for rejected records which is due to the transformation file *MAPPING section line:
  • The first part of this line works correctly i.e. NODENAME(1:3)=*STR (NPA) then NODENAME, but the second part fails i.e. NODENAME(5:14)
  • The reason it fails is because node names are shorter than length 14 and then the rejected record error message says "Command failed; end position is out of record index". All nodes with a length of 14 are
    accepted and all shorter fail.
