Deletion of Payment Terms

We have posted so many POs/SOs wherein we have attached different payment terms in the documents. Now we are going to delete certain payment terms because that is no longer required. These might have been used in the already POs/SOs. If we delete the payment terms, what will be the implications while we process these POs/SOs further? Please advise whatelse we need to take into account as a precaution prior to doing this.

    Dear Nikkitha ,

    There should not be any open orders with the payment terms which you want to delete. If you delete the Payment Terms after clearing of the document then it does not have any impact of already cleared documents.

    Hi:

    You should not delete terms of payment. Go to OBB8 and remove the check box "Customer" and "vendor" in that payment term , this will make payment term un usable for nay transaction or alternatively you can change their description as DO NOT USE. Deletion may well circumvent existing old data integrity.

    Hope this will help you.

    Regards

    • Hi,

      I mean to say once document are posted with these obsolete terms of payments and they are open , you will need to assign some new terms of payment to them again. Payment terms in posted document can not be changed normally due to setting in OB32. So in order to change and assign new terms of payment you must 1st make this field editable in OB32 so that proper aging for reporting purpose could be maintained. Deleting terms of payment does not stop processing of PO and SO.

      Regards
