    HI Diego

    Once you have done confirmation PO cannot be deleted you have to go backwards means first delete the confirmation and then delete the PO,

    or Make a return delivery and the nulify the previous confirmation .

    Diego,

    we are having the same problem; we try to delete a line on a cart (there are no follow on documents yet created) we get an 'error in transmission' and in RZ20 the monitor shows the following error

    Shopping cart 1000255595 (PO 0070179757): 06437 Distr. ind. and partial invoice ind. must be

    When i logged it with SAP the said we needed to change some settings in the R3 backend on OME9

    "In the R/3 backend Customising, 'Account Assignment Categories' -

    transaction OME9, please choose the account assignment category you are

    using, for example, K Cost Center.

    Double click on the entry and ensure the following fields have been

    maintained with value '2'.

    Distribution 2

    Partial invoice 2"

    we are reluctant to change this, as the vast majority of carts are working perfectly well with this config.

    Does anyone have any other suggestions as to

    a) what might be causing this and a long term resolution

    b) how we can delete the affected lines in the meantime?

    Many thanks all

    Vikki

    Hi

    I think, one cannot delete the PO which is 'error in process'.

    Try to run the FM BBP_PD_PO_TRANSFER_EXEC to check & output the actual error in BBP_PD. If that error can be resolved you can delete the PO items properly.

    If not able to resolve, forcibly you can set the satus to 'cancelled'.

      Diego,

      Since your PO is complete, the system tries to replicate the PO to R/3, some problem occurs during this data transfer and then the "error in process" status is triggered...

      So, i recommend you to disable that status, and then add the "held" status. Then the system is not going to try to transfer any changes...

      If you have the "delete" button enabled and the "held" status active, you will be able to delete it without triggering that "error in process".

      Hope this works and helps you out to solve the problem.

      BR,

      Gerardo.
