    Execute T Code OBR2 (read the Program Documentation (blue information button) in the selection screen of this transaction).

    If any transactions have been posted, you can not delete. You can block it from further postings

    I need to delete all GL accounts which are newly created and has no posting to it.

    I first tried deleting 1 GL a/c using OBR2, but this account is not deleted.The message which I am getting on the screen after executing is " Records Read 2 and Records deleted 0".

    As in the message records deleted is 0, hence this gl account still exists in the system.

    Am I missing anything here?

    Please assist.

    Thanks

    Yes, I unchecked the Test run before executing.

    Also if I want to delete 100 GL accounts at one go, can I do that?

    Thanks

      Hi

      True, when ur running OBR1 only your FI part entry will go off. But your cost element will still be in your system

      Go delete your cost element first, OBR1 & OBR2

      But if your going to upload a new set of GL account again, watch on few config again

      like your Gobal parameters maintaince ( the place you assign chart of accounts to your company code) and your automatic creation of cost elements

      Otherwise it should be fine, while running OBR2, first delete the company code GL and then the Chart of Accounts

      Hope it works

      Warm Regards

      Bala
