Procedure documentationMarking a Master Record for Deletion Centrally  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You wish to delete a customer master record centrally. First you must set the deletion flag, and the master record is then deleted during the next archiving run.


After you mark a master record for deletion, you can still post to the account. This is necessary, since you might still need to clear open items. When you post, the system issues a warning that you are posting to an account that is marked for deletion.


Mark a customer master record for deletion centrally as follows:

  1. Choose Master records ® Maintain centrally ® Mark for deletion.
  2. The initial screen appears.

  3. Enter the customer's account number and, if required, the company code and a sales organization. If you do not specify a key for a sales organization, the system does not mark this area for deletion.
  4. Choose Continue.
  5. The screen for specifying data for deletion appears.

  6. Choose which areas should be marked for deletion by selecting the relevant field.
  7. Save your entries.


The selected master data is marked for deletion and is deleted during the next archiving run.
