realignment process for characteristic values is not available for navigation
attributes. This is because such attributes are not included in characteristic
value combinations. They “point” to a value of another
characteristic. It is possible to change navigation attributes as described
In the APO Administrator
Workbench, right mouse click the InfoObject whose attribute values you wish to
change and choose Maintain master data. In the above example, the
InfoObject would be "customer".
Change the values of this
InfoObject's navigational attributes, and save the new assignment. For
example, you change the priority of customer SMITH from 7 to 5.
Still in the APO
Administrator Workbench, choose Tools → Apply hierarchy attribute
On the next screen, either
select With selected InfoObjects/hierarchies and select the
characteristics in the InfoObject list, or select Execute with variant
and specify a variant.
