Deployment - Deletes SNP Stock Transfers beyond Deployment Horizon

APO Gurus,

We're implementing Deployment Planning in APO (5.1).

When running Deployment with "SNP Orders" set to "Delete", the deployment engine creates Deployment Stock Transfers correctly within the Deployment Horizon, but it deletes all SNP orders, regardless of the Deployment Horizon. That is, if my Deployment Horizon is set to 5 days, it will create Deployment Stock Transfers (Distribution Demand Confirmed) for those 5 days, but it will delete all of the SNP stock transfers (Distribution Demand Planned), even those far beyond the 5 day Deployment Horizon.

This seems at odds with the documentation, which reads:

>If you select Delete, the system creates deployment stock transfers and deletes all the SNP stock transfers that fall within the planning period, regardless of whether or not they could be confirmed during the deployment run.<

I interpret "planning period" to mean "deployment horizon," but perhaps my interpretation is incorrect?

Is this functioning correctly - should deployment delete all SNP stock transfers, regardless of the Deployment Horizon?

If so, do you have suggestions for how we should manage this? We want to delete SNP stock transfers within the deployment horizon and replace them with Deployment stock transfers, which will be transferred to SAP for execution. Outside the Deployment Horizon, however, we want to keep our SNP stock transfers so that they will drive demand upstream.
