Moving InfoAreas and Objects in the InfoArea HierarchyLocate this document in the navigation structure

In a BW project, InfoAreas and objects can be moved from one InfoArea to another with a native Eclipse editor. Moving to another InfoArea is a transport-related change.


Note If you want to move existing InfoObjects that were created in the Data Warehousing Workbench, see the information in the documentation for InfoArea.


  1. Select one or more objects and InfoAreas in the Project Explorer view in the BW Repository tree, or in the Favorites, and choose Move from the context menu.

    You can also use drag and drop for this. Multiple selection is also supported here.

    The Move dialog box appears.

  2. Enter a target InfoArea.
  3. Specify the position in the hierarchy where you want to insert the InfoArea: as a subnode, above or below the target InfoArea.
    Note The options Above and Below can only be selected if alphabetical sorting for BW objects is deactivated in the BW project. You can find more information in the documentation on the BW Modeling display options.
  4. The system displays the list of elements that can be moved. By deselecting elements, you can stipulate that they cannot be moved.
  5. Press OK.
