Procedure documentation Marking a Master Record for Deletion for Accounting  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You wish to delete a customer master record. 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.


If you want to mark the customer master record for deletion in accounting, proceed as follows:

  1. From the Accounts receivable main menu, choose Master records -> Mark for deletion.
  2. The initial screen appears.

  3. Enter the customer's account number and the company code.
  4. Choose Continue.
  5. The screen appears on which you select which data is to be marked for deletion.

  6. Select the Chosen company code or All areas to be marked for deletion.
  7. If you select the All areas field, the system will later delete all data for all company codes and for all sales organizations in this customer master record.

  8. Save your entries.


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