Lock an old plant


in my scenario I have a company with 16 plant under it. One of this was sold by my client.

So I need to lock (on customizing, not by authority-check) the following activities:

1. Create and release new PR

2. Release PR already created

3. Create and release new Contracts

4. Release Contracts already created

5. Create and release new PO

6. Release PO already created

7. Goods Issue & Good Receipt

8. Create and release new Entry Sheet

9. Release Entry Sheet already created

10. Enter Invoice against PO / Delivery notes

...mantaining active the display of old documents.

I tried deleting the association between Company and Plant (via RMOT001K). Doing so can inhibit all the points above, but I can't access to the old documents in display (eg: ME23, ME23N etc..).

I also tried to cancel the association between Plant and Purchasing Organization, but doing so I can only inhibit the "new" (points 1, 3, 5 and 8 of the above list)

Can you give me some suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

    the usual way is to revoke authorization.

    you can as well restrict some activities by removing the automatic account assignment setup for your plant via account grouping code

    if you remove customizing, then you create inconsistencies and you cannot do anything as SAP checks always for existing of customizing. you will never be able to archive data from this plant if you remove customizing.
