    Hi Swetha,

    I don't think if it possible, you can clear or remove, all journal entries from an application database.

    Please check the [help file|http://help.sap.com/saphelp_bpc75_nw/helpdata/en/78/5f8c0c609b4f939ca77deb1063270e/content.htm] for more info.

    THnaks for the reply.

    Actually i want to trace all the journals which are just saved and deleted. Neither Journal report or data audit report keeps track of this. THus was lookig forward for a way to disable the delete option itself.

    Hi Swetha,

    To delete a journal, the journal needs to be unposted. If you do not want someone to delete a journal, make sure they do not have unpost journal task assigned to them.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Thanks.

    The problem is not with the posted journals.

    THe issues is with the journals which are only saved but not yet posted.

    When we delete these saved journals, we will not even get a log of this entry - neither saved log nor deleted log.

    THus we will not get the track of this particular journal ID, which might be an issue in audit.

    Regards,

    Swetha

      Hi Swetha,

      What used to happen with saved journals when they get deleted.....only the audit used to capture it if you had activated the activity audit for it.

      SAP has done an enhancement recently to keep the saved journals in the journal table even when they get deleted. Thus you would have all the journals for audit. Check the for the relevant snote for this. Dont remember the snote....we have applied it and it needs to have web admin parameter to keep the deleted 'saved' journals in the table.

      Thanks,

      Sreeni
