How to delete some data from GLPCA table

Former Member

Dear Friends,

We have extracted some data in GLPCA table via the ECPA component. We

want to delete these records ( Doc type and Posting date is known).

However we do not want other data already existing the GLPCA to be

deleted. Is there some Std SAP Trx for deletion of partial/select data

from EIS tables.

Please explain us clearaly how we can delete these records.

Your quick reply for this issue is highly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,

Naveen Kumar.

You are not supposed to delete any data in live system, since it may casue data inconsistancy...I believe you must be aware of the same.

However we can delete technically in SE16N, please ask your ABAPer, who can only delete them by explaing the business requirement and approval from business owners.

Though it is very much technically possible to delete (I do not want to explain here), you are strictly advised, not to delete any entries from the table directly. This would cause data inconsistencies.

Raise OSS note and contact SAP.

Please check the use of the report ZDELETE_PCA_DATA_BUKRS (mentioned in the SAP note 1174360), to delete totals from GLPCT.

I am not sure of any deletion reports for GLPCA table.

If you open the Source code of this program, you can see the following information :

"This report provides a possibility to delete actual and plan

*& postings on company code level as an alternative for transaction

*& 0KE1."

I do not have much information on this report as, personally I haven't used this anytime. Please run in 'Test Run' mode first and look for the results.

I hope this helps.

Thanks and regards,

Suresh Jayanthi.
