I am watching the two Live Cache table /SAPAPO/ORDKEY and /SAPAPO/ORDMAP grow steadily. SAP recommends to execute from time-to-time the report /SAPAPO/OM_ORDKEY_ORDMAP_CHECK to resolve any inconsistencies between the tables and downsize the content.

However, when I execute the report I get a long list of entries of inhouse-production order type with the message "ORDER in ORDKEY, but not in ORDMAP". There is the possibility to delete those requests. Currently we do not transfer planned orders from APO to R/3.

My issue is that I am not aware of the impact this has to the production data if I delete the records.

Could anyone give advice?

Thanks in advance

    ORDMAP table is to map Order data transferred to R/3. There are similar tables LOCMAP, MATMAP for master data in APO.

    I guess because you do not integrate Planned Order to R/3, you will not have entries in ORDMAP table for Planned orders which anyway will have GUID ORDID in the ORDKEY table.

    Moreover the SAP report is suggesting deletion of entries.

    Try in non-Production deletion of the entries. Then test out for the planned order if you can convert to production order (which I am sure you transfer to R/3), carry out scheduling in APO Planning Board, do execution in R/3 and finally Goods Receipt the output of the order. If all these statuses are transferred to APO correctly then functionally you are fine to delete the entries.

    My guess is as soon as the Planned Order is converted to Production Order the ORDID changes as now technically its a different order (Planned Order is copied to Production Order) for which ORDKEY and ORDMAP table gets populated.

    Keep posted your findings as this is interesting and bordering gray area of the solution.

      Hello Senthil,

      thanks for the note hints. We are already on SCM 5.1, so the bugs mentioned in the notes should be covered.

      best regards
