Deletion of manually added BOM components via Idoc

Dear Experts,

Request your help for below issue that I am facing in SAP Master data maintenance.

Background: Due to urgent business requirements, key users of our client will have to manually adjust SAP Engineering BOM data(changing quantity, addition of new components) so as to publish product compliance data to customers. Generally we create/update BOM using BOMMAT01 Idoc based on the changes in our PLM system.

Issue: BOM created via BOMMAT01 will update ALE indicator at the component level which will not be available for manually added components. So, when users add components manually we are unable to change those components via Idoc again. Standard SAP logic is ignoring manually added components in IDOC_INPUT_BOMMAT/CSAP_MAT_BOM_MAINTAIN. Even though I keep deletion indicator(LKENZ) in the Idoc, these components are being ignored with message 'Item(1) XXXX ignored(deletion indocator) - Message No. 29863'.

Does anyone have similar requirement or faced such kind of error?? If so can you please let me know how to solve it.

Thanks in Advance.

Best Regards
