Attempting to change base unit of measure

Before realizing the U/M was incorrect, BOMs were created utilizing a change number. These materials have since been deleted from any BOMs with the same change number and any dependent requirements, purchase requisitions, planned orders and material staging requirements have been deleted or removed.

Now the only error message returned when attempting to update the U/M is "the material is used in bills of material" even though CS15 indicates it is not used anywhere.

A BOM with only a few materials was removed from the change master utilizing CCUNDO and only then was the U/M able to be updated. The BOM has since been recreated with that change number but would rather not have to go through that process to update the remaining materials.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If SAP says it is used in a BOM then your BOM has probably just a deletion indicator and is not physically deleted or is a BOM which is not valid today but still present in the tables.

    I am not aware of any legal short cut to speed up the change process

    Its expected behavior and SAP has already given correction reports to overcome the difficulty. Please check the correction reports mentioned in the note: 47732 Material is still used in bill of material
