Creating an InfoArea

In BW, InfoAreas are the branches and nodes of a tree structure. InfoCubes are listed under the branches and nodes. The relationship of InfoAreas to InfoCubes in BW resembles the relationship of directories to files in an operating system. Let's create an InfoArea first, before constructing the InfoCube.
