SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Analytics workcenter
  2. Go to the Data Sources view and choose Design Data Sources sub view
  3. Find Data Source ID: SCMPBOMU02 ((Production Bills of Material Variant and Assigned Line Item Details) and SCMPBOMU (Production Bills of Material Variant and Line Item Details)
  4. Select and edit with web browser 
  5. Enter required output  and input product IDs
  6. Here you do not see hierarchy level until level 5 or so on.

  1. Go to the Planning and Production Master Data work center
  2. Go to the Production Bill Of Material view
  3. Find relevant BoM ID and select it
  4. Choose "Multi-Level BoM Visualization" option 
  5. System displays all levels of hierarchy maintained in a Bill of Material as required.
  6. You can export the hierarchy to an excel
