    Mark for deletion does not deltes the material record. You need to archive the material first and then delete it.

    Thanks and Regards

    Hi,

    You can only put a mark for deletion at MM06.Please just think that a material is created and subsequent documents created and if it is planned for deletion from tables means what!.

    However you can archive the materials at the t code MM71.

    Regards,

    • In a production system is NO OTHER WAY, only archiving.

      In a test system you can use MMDE, but keep in mind this erases the material from the material tables, but if a material was used e.g. in a purchase order, then this order will stay in your system.

      If you reuse the material number you will then have inconsitencies to old transactional data, which may be pretty disturbing for all others that do tests.
