variant article deletion

Post by aramk29 » Mon Feb 05, 2007 9:18 am

There are "n" no of variants attached to a generic article.Now the business wants to delete one of such variant?if Yes how?

PS :Purpose of doing this is to add the same variant but with a different variant no.i.e. only the variant number differs not the description.

Hi Aram,

Variant articles are deleted the same way as we mark single article for deletion.
1) Discontinue the Variant that you want to delete using transaction WSE1
2) Archive the article using transaction MM71....

Please call me at 2645 for more detailed information...

Hi Raj,

Thanks for the information...but when i tried archiving using(SARA - Equivalent of Mm71) it didnt quite archive stating some POs exist and and also stock exists in the valuation area(xyz)....

While on WSE1 you can test your article to check for related PO Documents, Stock value, etc..

You should get rid of this documents, in order to finally delete the material
