Currently, in R3, there is a funds center and a commitment item hierarchy that is being extracted to BW each day. The initial view of the various workbooks does not include these hierarchies. For any workbook that has the funds center or commitment item characteristic, you can add the hierarchy to your report by doing the following steps. This document uses the commitment item hierarchy as an example. 1. Execute the workbook. 2. Once the results are displayed, go to the local view of the query (choose the ‘Change query’ icon from the BW toolbar) Change query
3. Right click on the ‘Commitment item’ characteristic and choose ‘Properties’.
