Material Master Record - How to remove or delete storage location

November 30Hits:0

Dear all,
Is there a way to remove or delete a storage location accidentally extended via MM01 due to extending the general plant view?
I've tried the following:
1. I've used MM06 to flag the particular storage lcoation for deletion. However, when go to MM02 and select the plant view, the storage location that already been flag still exist for selection. I only get the warning prompt "The storage location has been flag for deletion".
2. I tried MMSC attempt to delete and I get either messages with different material master record:
a) "Material not fully maintained for this transaction/event"
OR
b) "Storage location 60BF already exists and cannot be deleted"
P/S: If this question has been asked before by others, please point me to that thread.
I'm grateful for any suggestion. Thanks.
Steven

Hi Jurgen,
I've gone through the data archiving project in the past. I was actually hoping I don't have to go through this big exercise for this minor situation.
The storage locations in the SAP system are fine. The problem is that when I came in to this organization, I found out that the procurement users have accidentally extended material master record to those storage location irrelevant to them. Those users don't post any stock to those accidentally extended storage location. They admit that it was a mistake. So, I don't really have to do stock movement or GI out from those affected storage location because there's nothing in them.
Now that I've initially flag for deletion (MM06) of those mistakes done by those procurement users over the few years counting to 2000+ material master records affected. But the standard behavior of the SAP system allows change to proceed in MM02 except for that warning message MM081. So, I was actually asking around to explore if there's actually an option to make it an error prompt instead and stop the whole change process at MM02 transaction level.
If I may re-confirm, what I've done so far via flaging for deletion of material master record at storage location level - is this the only correct solution available?
Hope this clarifies my intention of opening this thread. Sometimes, users are quite tough in accepting the results from standard SAP system behavior.
Thanks for the time in explaining.
Steven
