    hello, friend.

    a sales order can be deleted just as long is there are no subsequent transactions referencing this sales order such as deliveries (in the case of standard orders) and billing (as in credit and debit memo requests).

    however, it is not best practice to delete a sales order. it is better to reject the sales order by making an entry in the field 'Reason for Rejection'. this order can later be archived much later in the course of normal company operations.

    regards.

      Hello Friend,

      Yes u can delete a sales order. Use following solution if order is open means u have not created further documents.

      Put t. code VA02, goto menu bar, sales document, delete.

      or if u have created further documents then reverse that flow of document means first cancel invoice, then reverse PGI, then delete order.

    Yes u can delete a sales order, once it is saved.

    For that u need to open that by VA02, goto menu bar, sales document, delete.

    But if the document contains further documents, it can be deleted after deleting the preceding documents.

    Hope it is useful.

    hi,

    as long as there is no subsequent document to it, you can cancel/delete a document.

    example as you wanted to delete the sales order after saving, you need to ensure there is no subsequent doc to it, in this case its a delivery.

    regards

      Hi,

      You can always delete sales order, however as per SAP , its a good practice to reject the sales order rather than deleting it.

      here are the steps you should follow if there are underline documents like deliveries, shipment associated with a sales order otherwise you can directly remove it.

      A) Access the document flow of order to identify the deliveries and the shipments linked to these rejected line items

      B) Remove the deliveries from the shipments.

      C) Delete the delivery documents

      D) Delete the shipment documents

      E) Set the Reason for Rejection VBAP-ABGRU to Order Expired.

      Regards,

    U can easily delete sales order after it has been saved, but it depends upon status of order

    1. Suppose only order is created but no subsequent documents has been generated then directly go to VA02- sales documents- Delete.

    2. Suppose order is created but all or some subsequent documents has been generated

    Like then first we need to delete or cancel all those documents

    a. Go to vf11- cancel billing document.

    b. Go to VL09- reversal of PGI

    c. Got to VA02- delete sales order

    But you should always reject order by giving proper reason of rejection, this will in turn help the data warehousing people to trace it out.

    As if you directly delete any sales order without giving any proper reason of rejection then that sales order no will not be used in future.

    A Sales order can be deleted only if it is open and delivery not done.

    It can be deleted from the Va02 Screen menu.

    Hi

    if don't have any further documents you can always delete the sales order if you have any further documents first you have delete that document like cancel billig and reverse pgi and delete sales order .

    in va02 top menu sales document then delete there is option.

    you can do it. buet if rather then deleteing if you reject that willbe better for future database and reference.

    i hope you have understood.

    if reward points helpfull.

    thanks

    Hi,

    You can very well delete the Sales Order, but there should not be any further documents processed i.e delivery. But the best way is to reject the order because when you delete the order you cannot archieve it again.

    Cheers,

    Anil.
