There are some recommendations in some SAP notes. Did you check them? What do you mean exactly "it doesn't work"?

Hi Sandra,

when i deleted the cus&variantname system doesn't say anything. and i try to check variant again via se38, and it is still there and i can see the value except that the creator, created on are blank. so i assume it was deleted partially. i don't have access to 000, so i can't delete from there

FYI, i created new program, so it won't popup TR request


I obtain the following result while searching SAP notes with text "delete system variant CUS&", application component BC-ABA* and All dates:

Hi Sandra,

thanks for your suggestion, i found that FM RS_VARIANT_DELE_ALLCLIENT will do the works, it is not working with RS_VARIANT_DELETE which i tried it before. but the note should also works
