Delete Planning Book

Hi All,

I created planning area and planning books for testing. Since they were not required anymore I decided to delete all. I assumed that when I delete planning area it deletes planning book as well. but that did not happen. Now planning area is deleted but i still see planning book in interactive planning.

Please let me know how do I delete this planning book since when try using standard planning book T code to delete it give me error message " planning area does not exists"

Regards,

Harshil Desai

    Hi Harshil,

    Can you check the /SAPAPO/PBMVW table whether the entry for Planning Book is there?

    If yes, try to delete it from this table.

    Thanks,

    Rajesh

      Thanks all for your response.

      @ Aparna: When you delete planning area system deletes all dependent objects like planning book/data view.

      In my case when I deleted planning area, system did not delete planning books because planning book/data view was locked by status "change by author only".

      @ Rajesh: Awarding full points for hint. I could have delete the record completely but I took different rout be changing user name in table entry for respective planning book and then I deleted planning book from standard planning book transaction.

    No sure how you managed to delete planning area when there were objects dependent on it - ie planning books. SAP does not allow you to delete a parent object when dependent objects exist . Can you please check and make sure if the planning area has been really deleted - it could have been deactivated ???

    Thanks
