Did you look here ? Did you see the comment is it relevant? What about this ? - You can always set '000000000' as a phone no.

I'm struggling with this, too. I'm unable to delete phone numbers (i.e. overwrite existing numbers with blank). From this thread I got the idea of setting the CURRENT_STATE flag to 'X'. Yet no luck. The best solution so far is what Iftah suggests above - replace the number with some dummy value, e.g. '00000' or '-'.


Hi Thomas,

I know that I am responding to an old post - this answer for anyone who may experience the same issue.

With reference to the structure CVIS_EI_PHONE, in order to delete a Telephone number, specify:

- DATA-CONSNUMBER (of the number to be deleted)


- set TASK = 'D'.

All the CONSNUMBERs can be obtained by first reading the Address data of the customer (you could use FM ADDR_GET_COMPLETE to read the address)

Thanks Tyrone.

I needed the solution very much.
