During setup run on Material Movements, getting "Plant xxx does not exist" error (Message No. W7046)

To fill setup table, ran Setup fill on Material Movements. i get an error msg saying "Plant xxx does not exist" error (Message No. W7046).

This is a Dev system, they did delete the Plant but the transactions do exist with the Plant. i couldnt run setup by excluding the plant as there is no option / not aware of it. what are my options here to run the setup. please advise!

    From the message and your info (plant deleted despite of movements) there is probably one a single solution: re-create the plant.

    If this plant is not needed then remove the movements with data archiving first and thereafter the plant. However, if your movements have been made against a purchase order for example them removing a plant will also create inconsistencies, even it is your development client, inconsistent data has a negative impact on developments that are done in this client. Better than deleting would be to reuse the number for a new plant
