 Deleting TypesLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can delete a type (data element, structure, or table type) in the ABAP Dictionary only if it is no longer used in other objects (for example in tables, structures or programs).

  1. Open the Repository Browser and navigate to the type which you want to delete.
  2. In the context menu of the type, choose the Where-Used List to check if the table is still used in programs or other objects of the ABAP Dictionary.
  3. In the context menu of the type, choose Delete.

    A dialog box appears in which you are asked to confirm the deletion request.

  4. Confirm the deletion request.

The type is deleted if it is not being used in other objects.
