    Hi Shanz,

    Unfortunately the functionality to delete master data once it is setup (or saved) is not available currently . So you can`t delete a fully or partially created Material or Service Product. It is also not possible to delete this from the database as this would require lot of follow up and might lead to data inconsistencies like in Reports etc.

    Once a Material is activated for Purchasing, Logistics, Planning, Availability Confirmation, Sales and Valuation, then it is allowed to block the Material only for Purchasing and Sales. The status of Logistics, Planning, Availability Confirmation, and Valuation are not
    allowed to block.

    The reason for this behavior is, if the Material is used for Logistics, Planning, Availability Confirmation, and Valuation, blocking the status will end up in inconsistencies in the Business transaction Documents whichever uses the Material. So, in general it is not allowed to block the status of Material for Logistics, Planning, Availability Confirmation, and Valuation.

    But, once you block the Material for Purchasing and Sales, then those Materials are never used for Sales and Purchasing. Which means no new entries of these materials can be created in the system. But Material which have already in Logistics (or in any SCM process) will remain unaffected

    I hope this will answer to your question.


    Regards,

    Harshal
