Characteristic not allowed in compounding
I am starting to work on a fresh BI system. Therefore, following the SAP Best Prectices (B03: General Settings..., and others), I wanted to activate IObject Catalog 0CHANOTASSIGNED. I followed the instructions, managed to activate it. However - I have noticed that not some IObjetcs are inactive when I browse them in RSA1 Modelling.
For example, 0MATERIAL is inactive. I have tried to activate it and I got prompted that dependent inactive IObjects exist, and whether I want to activate them. I can't activate 0MATERIAL, because its attributes and hierarchies characteristics are inactive. Subsequently, those cannot be activated as some of their attributes are also inactive.
After some research I have determined two IObjects: 0CM_CTAR and 0CM_SHAR. They are 'last in the line' of inactive objects so to speak. When I try to activate those, I get an error, saying respectively:
Characteristic 0CM_CTAR: Unit 0UNIT_DIM no allowed in compounding
Characteristic 0CM_SHAR: Unit 0AREA_UNIT no allowed in compounding
I have tried to find some information on a solution to this problem, unfortunately couldn't find any.
Could anyone point me to some helfpul information? How can this be resolved?
Any help will be appreciated.
