RSHIEDIR - central hierarchy administration table which contains all relevant information f.e. technical hierarchy name, HIEID, version, time-validity etc. If the hierarchy is versiont/time dependent, the system generates an entry for each version/time-interval → each version of a hierarchy determined by the version/time-interval gets its own hierarchy-ID (HIEID). If the hierarchy has a time dependent hierarchy structure, only one entry (only one HIEID) is generated in table RSHIEDIR (with DATEFROM = INITIAL and DATETO = 31.12.9999).
RSRHIEDIR_OLAP - this table is used by OLAP to identify a hierarchy. OLAP does not use the technical name, version and key date of a hierarchy. Instead HIESID- and SVER-values contained in this table define the hierarchy unambiguously.
/BI*/I<IOBJNM> - I-table of the infoobject on which the hierarchy is based. The I-table contains the hierarchy structure of each hierarchy-version in table RSRHIEDIR_OLAP (HIESID- and SVER-values are used) specifying predecessor and successor of each node/leaf using SID-values instead of keys, since OLAP only uses SIDs. The SID of a node is always negative, the SID of a leaf is positive.
/BI*/K<IOBJNM> - K-table of the infoobject on which the hierarchy is based. The K-table is the hierarchy node table which contains the SID-values (negative) for all hierarchy-nodes. The hierarchy is determined using the HIESID-value found in table RSRHIEDIR_OLAP.
/BI*/H<IOBJNM> - H-table of the infoobject on which the hierarchy is based. The H-table also shows the hierarchy-structure but more like it is displayed in transaction RSH1 containing fields like NODENAME (not the SID), DATETO and DATEFROM.
/BI*/J<IOBJNM> - the J-table contains the intervals (if supported) maintained in the hierarchy.
RSTHIERNODE - text table for text nodes.
RSRHIEDIR_TIMDEP - this table contains the time periods in which a time-dependant hierarchy changes
RSDRHLRUBUFFER - bookkeeping table for temporary 02-hierarchy-tables
RSDRHTREXBUFFER - bookkeeping table for temporary 08-tables used by Hana and BWA
RSDCHABAS - this table contains the infoobject properties of a characteristic
RSDCHATHJ - this table contains the original and the associated info-objects for THJ
RSHIERTHJT (and RSHIERTHJTTXT) - contains derivation of key date for THJ
