How to create hierarchy in SAP BW

Before you can create a hierarchy for an infoobject, say cost center, you must first ensure that the infoobject supports hierarchy. So in the infoobject change screen, choose the hierarchy tab and select "with hierarchies":

Save/Activate etc usual stuff. Now, go back to the infobject catalog directory, right click on the infoobject and choose create hierarchy:

And walla. You'll get to the hierachy screen, and can add nodes and such. But to make things much easier, I recommend using flat files upload to load your hierachy from excel. Which I will cover in a much later post.

On creating hierarchies, prior to activation, select the tab "external chars in hierarchies" (present in th hierarchy tab) and then activate the info object.
