I have created an Account (Business Partner) in Web UI of CRM 7.01. I entered some info in Sales Area Data assignment block and saved it.
Now I want to simply delete the sales area data. It does not show a delete button. It only shows the edit button. When I click on the edit button, the Sales Org., Distribution Channel and Division are grayed out. So I did not find a way to delete this Sales Area data from the Assignment block.
Can anybody give me some direction or clue?
It is not possible to perform that deletion. The reason is an inconsistency between the organizational models in ERP and CRM.
Possible workarounds include:
- Define the validity time period for a particular org unit, - therefore the corresponding sales area assigned to this org unit would also expire in time,
- Also it is possible to adopt the field KNA1-AUFSD (Central order block for customer); here it is possible to block the
salea area in the customer master
- In CRM transaction BP here is on the Sales Tab the field 'Order Block Reason'.
- You can set the validity time period when you create orgainzation unit. Therefore the corresponding sales area assigned to this org unit would also expire in time.
Hope it helps
Thanks for the reply.
Based on the inputs given by you, I can either set a valid to date on the org unit or set up an order block for the customer for that sales area.
I also wanted to check if I could achieve this functionality of deleting the sales area assigned to a BP through a program or through any function module.
I will be happy to adopt that route as well if there is a way out.
