    Hi,

    The deletion of contact person is not possible when the contact person have been used in some marketing documents.

    Based on the sap note:

    1530763 - Cannot delete contact person in BP. Version 1 Validity: 19.11.2010 - active Language English

    Content: Summary | Header Data | References | Validity

    Symptom

    You create a delivery that using the customer which has more than one contact persons. You change the default contact person in Business Partner Master Data. It gets the error message 'Contact person is referenced by another object "Deliveries [Test1][Message 3511-1].' when you delete the contact person which is not link to any object.


    Cause

    Application error.


    Solution

    SAP intends to provide patches in order to solve described problem.
    The section Reference to related Notes below will list the specific
    Patches when available.
    The corresponding Info file of Patches on SAP Service Marketplace will
    show the correction / SAP Note number also.
    Be aware that these references can only be set at Patch release date.
    SAP will deliver Patches only for selected Releases at its own
    discretion, based on the business impact and the complexity of the
    implementation.


    Other terms

    OCPR.



    Header Data


    Released on 22.11.2010 02:13:30 Release status Released for Customer Component SBO-BP Business Partners Priority Correction with high priority Category Program error

    References

    This document refers to:

    SAP Business One Notes 1550320 Overview Note for SAP Business One 8.8 Patch 19

    This document is referenced by:

    SAP Business One Notes 1550320 Overview Note for SAP Business One 8.8 Patch 19

    you can only delete contact person that have not been used in any B1 objects.

    So, to make the contact person inactive, create a udf in contact person and set the udf value to be Yes or No.

    After that, create SBO store procedure transaction notification to validate the use of the inactive contact person in any object of SAP B1 by SBO users .

    Good luck 😊

    Hi Vasileios,

    If it is used in the documents then SAP will not allow to delete ?

    system will throw you an error

    "CAN NOT DELETE THIS CONTACT PERSON. IT IS USED IN SALES ORDER"

    for example.

    thanking you
