Follow this simple two-step process for transferring a custom hierarchy for an InfoObject from your development system into your production system.

Dear BW Expert,

I’ve created a custom hierarchy for an InfoObject directly in the BW development system and did not load it from R/3. How do I get the hierarchy into the production environment? Should I transport the tables and copy the values, or do I have to create a new hierarchy in production?
