SCM - how to delete inactive characteristic combinations


Hi SCM gurus:

We are live with SCM product allocation for over a year, there are many 'Inactive' characteristic combination in the characteristic combination directory /SAPAPO/ATPQ_CHKCHAR, the characteristics combination directory list is growing longer and longer

I was trying to delete some of the Inactive characteristics combination from the directory, and was getting the message 'It is not possible to delete characteristics combination XXXX XXXXXXX(material number)', it turned out that the system was checking against table /sapapo/sdqtvb, if there is any entry for this characteristic combination, then it would display that message and it would not allow this combination to be deleted, this table contains all sales orders that has valid product allocation assignments?? if this is the case, then how can I delete those Inactive characteristic combinations from the directory??

Your help on this is greatly appreciated!!!
