    Hi,

    As far as i know we can't delete a customer.

    Transaction code for marking deletion is XD06.

    Thanks,

    Raj.

    Hi,

    First thing is that it is not possible to delete the customer master from the database once it is created.

    Second, it is not at all advisable to delete any masterdata, becos there may be lot of transactions based on that masterdata.

    If you have to necessarily delete customer master details from tables, you may do it by writing a program. However this should be done only after deleting(not cancelling, if we cancel, again cancellations will be in the name of the customer) all the transactions done for the customer, or archiving them.

    In Standard SAP, it is hence not possible to delete any master. We can only put a deletion indicator or a block on that master.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Hi

    Customer cannot be deleted completely. You can set the deletion flag in XD06.

    Regards.

    Hello,

    If you want to delete the customer master from the database, then you need to delete all the documents for this customer..ie.. quotations, orders, deliveries, invoices, financial docs... etc, otherwise it may lead to a data inconsistency.

    So it is advicable to put a deletion flag by transaction XD06.

    Hello Saping...

    As per Standard, You can not delete the customer completely from the SAP Data Base,but you can mark deletion flag to the customer.

    Through XD06 transaction, go to XD06 transaction,

    In the Customer Flag for Deletion:Initial screen you enter the customer , Company code and sales area details of the customer which you want mark for deletion then press enter system will take you to the next screen called Customer Flag for Deletion:Details here you can select whether you mark for deletion

    a.All sales ares

    or

    b.selected company code

    or

    c.selected sales areas

    Then save the changes

    If you create Sales order with deleted customer system will give the warrning message "The Customer 'XXXX' flag for deletion".

    I hope it will help you

    Regards,

    Murali.
