    there are dependencies between the business objects i.e. if you have e.g. PO where an invoice is required and you have not posted the full amount or set the flag 'last invoice/no further invoice expected' you can't just close the document -- if you could, you might/will consider it inconsistent once you figured out. Still, there are situations where a 'closing' is justified. You have to do this via report and set the corresponding flags. To figure the right flags go to BBP_PD and try to find DEL_IND on one of the item tables resp. DOC_CLOSED on one of the header tables. Actually, the correct checks can be found within the standard archiving programs.

    • Again - be careful what you do. I mean more info is not really possible as too timeconsuming and noboby at SAP is analyzing 'what might be the issues/inconsistencies when you just set a DEL_IND on the DB'.

      This is just too complex - depends on your document flow, scenario, process etc. etc. Once you set a deletion indicator or closed the documents what-ever-way, it might be that you'll have issues when you want to post follow on documents or just try to archive the document chain.

      If you want to do this you need to take the responsibility 😉 go and set the deletion indicators in a test environment and continue extensive testing whether any follow on effects occur.
