I have generally seen that MD74, MD75 and MD76 are run one after another everytime when individually Independent requirement for a material are to be deleted.

Why are they always run one after another, i always felt that once MD74 takes place, none of the other txn makes any difference.

Can anybody explain me?

Md74 - deletes PIR's before key date.

MD75 - deletes records from the Total requirements screen

Md76 - Deletes the history that this PIR ever existed/ created.

SAP has this 3 step process to enable each customer to determine upto what level they need to delete PIR in their system.

One cusomer may prefer to just delete unwanted PIR which are unconsumed before key date.

Another customer may prefer to delete PIR & also it's history from the system.

Actually you cannot execute MD75 until you execute MD74. On the same tone cannot run MD76 until you run MD75.

Hope this clarifies. Else please come back.
