Cannot Recreate a PPM

33 Views

Hi folks,

My issue is like this:

The PPM GUID is an unique sap-internal key which get generated when any ppm is saved & assigned to the active model. This is the internal id which can be found in the table /SAPAPO/PMPMAP. This key also gets subsequently erased from this table the moment any PPM is unassigned from the model & deleted from the APO.

Example : The PPM GUID for PPM1 =PRODUCTNAME1_LOCATION1 is JaX0gGi40A}X00002XStUG.

Unfortunately this standard procedure is not working currently for this material = PRODUCTNAME1 in APO system, hence the PPM1 GUID is not getting erased from this table. Even after repeated attempts from our side to delete PPM1= 065310401_5003 from PA1, the GUID is not getting erased.

This is kind of a rare occurence which we have not come across before.

There is a work around possible in case this PPM could be saved by some name other than PRODUCTNAME1_LOCATION1; It would than get generated & the corresponding PPM would get saved without any fuss.

But we are unable to find the reason why the PPM GUID is not getting erased from this table.

Notes:

1) We have run WUF & there are no orders pending against this PPM

2) PPM is deleted from APO by using /SAPAPO/PPM_DEL.

3) When we checked this PPM is t-code /SAPAPO/SCC03, but it gives the message : Plan 065310401_5003 does not exist.Create Object?

But we try to msave it it says : "PPM name PRODUCTNAME1_LOCATION1 has already been used in other plans

4) This can be corroborated from the table /SAPAPO/PMPMAP where the GUID is still present!!

Any pointer would be a great help.
