Yes Sometime we need delete DMS document from SAP database.(for example data migration is wrong and etc.)

We have two solution

Solution 1:

Step 1 : Find document you want delete and set deletion flag ( it is possible mass set deletion flag in cv04n if you set  in customizing)

step 2 : Go to t.code : se38 and run program MCDOKDEL


Step 3 : select document Type

o   Part 1: Undeleted documents

    This is a list of the documents that cannot be deleted due to their


o   Part 2: Deleted documents

Number 2  :  This indicator controls whether the usage should be checked for the

                     documents to be deleted.

    • Hi Pooja Gunjal

      No  program or standard FM available to delete the documents.
