Navigating up and down hierarchy


I am attempting to do drill up and down within a BW hierarchy on a chart.

Setting it up to drill down the hierarchy is fine, but stepping back up is a challenge..unless I am missing something...or some trick.

I have everything set so the chart starts at the top.

Clicking on the chart, filters on the node, and expands that node 1 level.

This works all the to the bottom.

However, how can I back up one level at any given time?  I have a reset button to set the chart back to the top..

so going down:




Level 1a

Level 1b

Click on Level 1a you get

Level 1a

Level 2a

Level 2b

Level 2c


Ideally if the user clicks on Level 1a in this chart, it should go back up one level  (or an up arrow button, BACK, etc..)

But I cannot figure out how to set the filter to the Node directly above

I thought maybe bookmarks, but I do not want to set the whole app back one step, just this chart/dataset

This is not obvious to me at all..

thanks for any ideas
