RSA2/Cost Element Hierarchy (0COSTELMNT_0102_HIER)/remove 0CO_AREAP Prefix

Hi, gurus.

We are using 0COSTELMNT_0102_HIER delivered infosource. This datasource is extracting from our source system the cost element hierarchy. When loading into BW, every element is getting a controlling area Prefix (cost element characteristics, hierarchy nodes and hierarchy name). This is the standard behaviour.

Our requirement is to remove Controlling Area prefix from every hierarchy node and from hierarchy name, but not from characteristic elements.

eg......0CO_AREA........0COSTELMNT............0HIERNAME

.........M650..................RU_SIGMA................M650RU_SIGMA

.........M660..................RU_SIGMA................M660RU_SIGMA

And we want to get the hierarchy name without the controlling area, so:

....................................................................0HIERNAME

....................................................................RU_SIGMA

We can´t upload the hierarchy from a flat file cause we want to load and refresh it daily from the source system.

We've asked in Marketplace about the missing "change" option in RSA2 transaction, cause we see 2 options to do this:

1) Create a customer datasource for 0COSTELMNT hierarchy with RSA2 and use 2 custom function modules for extraction and hierarchy catalogs.

2) Modify 0COSTELMNT_0102_HIER and call 2 new custom function modules for catalog and data extraction (GSBH_HIERARCHY_TRANSFER_SETS, GSBH_HIERARCHY_CATALOG_SETS)

In any case, we would need access to RSA2 with create/modify authorization.

They answered that RSA2 is for display only. Here is their answer:

"RSA2 is a display only transaction. This transaction is not released for changes in customer systems. The reason is that there would be risks due to incorrect modifications."

I've also tryed BW07 transaction, but it is just for sets created with GS01 transaction (hierarchy class 0000), and I can´t create a custom datasource for Cost Element from this point.

If is there another way to supress controlling area prefix??

Our Development team don´t want the idea to modify GSBH_HIERARCHY_TRANSFER_SETS, GSBH_HIERARCHY_CATALOG_SETS function modules without an OSS note that says so.

Thanks in advance, Leticia

I'm having just the same problem mentioned in this thread /community
