Cannot Delete Item

Hi,

I'm trying to delete a series of items, but it keeps giving me this message: You Cannot Remove Item; Linked Transactions Exist.

The problem is that the items were never used in a transaction (i.e. no audit report). Moreover, there is no Bill of Material at the child or parent level..

Not sure what is going on but this is what I tried:

1. Ran a query to see if the item ever existed on the OINM table. It never did

2. Check to see if it's on any opened or closed Production Order. It's not.

3. Check SAP Note 1774653. It did not apply.

4. Check the change log. The only thing was that it was once on a price list, but not anymore. Never used in transactions though.

This item was created back in the middle of 2013 and it's currently on SAP 9.1 PL 7, which is multiple versions from when it was created. That is the only thing I can come up with.

Any ideas? Thanks.

-Jeff

    Hi

    If you mention this item in BOM (Production Bill of Material) then it will give this error and can not delete until you remove it from BOM.

    hope this will help you.

    Hi,

    Did you check for any drafts posted in the database?

    It may be possible that drafts for the Item Code may be added which is not letting the item to be deleted.

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Jeff,

    Check in Draft Table by using the below query....

    SELECT * FROM ODRF T0 INNER JOIN DRF1 T1 ON T0.[DocEntry] = T1.[DocEntry]

    And whether some Items are save in draft table or not.

    Second option ran the Master Data Clean-up Wizard with selected particular Item.
