Importing Data With Parent and Child Relationships

Siebel applications support multilevel hierarchies for defining accounts, products, and product lines. For example, a product's bill of materials may involve levels for components, assemblies, and sub-assemblies. Similarly, a parent account may have multiple child accounts for company divisions and wholly-owned subsidiaries. These child accounts may be further organized into subaccounts such as regions and offices.

Siebel applications support an unlimited number of levels within account, product, and product line structures. For a child entity to be successfully imported, its parent must first be successfully imported in a prior batch or in the same batch.
