Problems creating Transportation Zones through Function Loader

Dear Experts,

I am having some issues while creating transportation zones and their hierarchies through the FUNCTION_LOADER_INLAY program. I would like to create both postal code zones and blank zones (for hierarchical levels). I am running into two problems:

  1. I can create zones through the program which then appear correctly in TC /SCMTMS/ZONE, with the correct postal codes, name, and description attributed. However, these zones do not appear outside of this transaction. For example, if I attempt to create a transportation lane and do a matchcode search for zones ("Search for Locations in a Model"), these newly created zones do not appear.
  2. These zones created through the Function Loader are assigned to a hierarchy without error message; however, they do not appear in the system anywhere (ex. in transaction /SAPAPO/RELSHOW). But, I can create a hierarchy through the Function Loader using two zones that were created through the standard transaction. These hierarchies are created correctly and appear throughout the system.

This leads me to believe that the Function Loader is incorrectly creating the new zones and (and thus any hierarchies that use them) in a different model (not 000). However, I have not found a parameter in the Function Loader that includes the active model.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be going wrong here? The help is much appreciated.
