Classification Team,

As we know generally system will not allow user to delete and change some master data from the system, when it is already use somewhere.

Like – Order is already booked for some material & same material class characteristics changes required. System will not allow the same. System will restrict the user to delete characteristics from the class. because it is already use in some configuration as well as in other master data (Ex – Dependency)

In this kind of case SAP has given one report. Name called – RMCLMDEL.

Note: Authorization of executing this report should be limited.

This report will delete the characteristics with the assignment.

Step 1: Go to SE38 transaction code.

Step 2: Enter report name (RMCLMDEL) and click on display button.

Step 3: On report we have button called Direct processing. Or click on F8 Button to process.

Step 4: The new page will open with the name “Delete Characteristics from class with assignment”

Step 5: Fill class, class type and Characteristics name, which user want to delete.

Step 6: Just click on execute button to delete the characteristics from the required class.

(While process, system will give warning message just ignore it and process)

That’s it..

Important Notes:

When characteristics already used in some order with assign some value (means characteristics is not black in order, it has some value)

That time user has to remove that characteristics value from the order.

In some case its not easy to remove value. (In the case – mandatory characteristics of the order, or other case like dependent characteristics value)

We have to use ECM to delete the characteristics from the class.

Thanks,

    Keyur,

    My understanding is if characteristic is in use even this report will not allow to delete, you need to use ECM to delete such characteristics. Deleting characteristic may lead to inconsistencies, because the configured object is in use.

    Can you also add piece of information here how to handle such scenario.

    Thanks

      Ritesh,

      I completely agree with your valuable advice.

      I forget to add here following information.

      When characteristics already used in some order with assign some value (means characteristics is not black in order, it has some value)

      That time user has to remove that characteristics value from the order.

      In some case its not easy to remove value. (In the case – mandatory characteristics of the order, or other case like dependent characteristics value)

      We have to use ECM to delete the characteristics from the class.

      And ha I will surely include your suggested topic – Delete the characteristics through the ECM.
