Master data deletion

Few materials are being deleted in the source system.

In BW we have a full load for the Material master data, So the deleted materials still appear in BW.

As far as I know, Its adviced not to delete the master data content.

Can you help me in achieving this in a different method.

The requirement is : We dont need those materials anymore in BW. How to get rid of them

Hi Meps,

there is no way for you to get rid of these materials if you already have transactional data posted to cubes or ods objects using these materials.

What you can do is, goto 0material in rsa1, do a right click and choose 'delete master data'. What happens is, the system checks the usage of the master data records in dataproviders and/or other infoobjects. If a record is not used, it will be deleted.
