How to archive notifications connected to orders

Dear SAP experts

We decided to delete and archive a notification type and all created notifications of this type in our system. These notifications are in general connected to maintenance orders that are already closed (TECO etc).

At this moment I cannot archive the notifications because they are still connected to maintenance orders. Normally you should first archive the orders and after that the notifications. But in this case that is not possible. We want to keep the orders.

The solution then would be to disconnect the notifications from the orders and then archive the notifications. But that is not possible. To disconnect a notification I first have to reverse the closed status of the order. And I cannot reverse the closed status of the orders because the WBS-code (project code) is also allready closed. We do not want to open old projects.

Does anyone know a way to disconnect notifications from a maintenance order without changing the closed status of the maintenance order ?

    Hi Broers,

    I dont think in standard way you are archive notifications without orders.

    It is not recommended, but in certain cases we do, by removing data at table level. Below link shows the notification relevant tables which are affected when we execute the standard way of archive.

    Archiving Maintenance Notifications (PM-WOC-MN) - Plant Maintenance and Customer Service (PM/CS) - SAP Library

    This is just an idea, you might get good info from others.

    Also, check whether you can develop a program for the same, may be system status MARC could be the loop for your custom development. Need a very good abaper.
