Microsoft dynamics hierarchy type management

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello all

I am using the Microsoft dynamics AX for the management of CRM. I have recently created a new hierarchy, and I want to now associate it to the procurement hierarchy. Actually I want this created category hierarchy become the default when I create a new catalogue.

So can anyone please tell me how do I disassociate a category hierarchy.

Please refer to the screenshot attached below:

Category hiearchies

As you can see above I have the MX gear as my category hierarchy and I am not able to delete any of the current category hierarchies. I tried to delete the procurement hierarchy 1 but I was met with an error instead. The screenshot of the error is attached below:

Category hiearchies -file

It's easy, categories are in shared tablets, so it will be another legal entity set using the category. You have to remove it first from "ALL Legal Entities" in the database.

To fix the problem "Category hierarchies can not be deleted Category heirarchy's role exist. Delete dependent hierarchy's role and try again" you have to delete all legal entities that are present in the database because a legal entity set is utilizing the category. And the category is present in the shared table that can be seen by following this stepwise operation: System Administration>> Reports >> Dtatbae >> Table. Then proceed to AOT>> Data dictionary>> Tables. Choose the option "Table" then "Show Properties" then "Save Data per Company". In this way the table is shared successfully.
