      To delete a personnel number in production use report RPUDELPP:

      delete pernr in prod - 1.PNG

      2 steps required namely request and execute deletion of personnel number(s). On level of authorization, you'll need object P_DEL_PERN.

      Check the documentation for detailed information on usage.

      Jaya, perhaps you can extend the document with this report for complete picture on "deletion of personnel numbers"
