I want to delete an equipment which was wrongly updated into PRD client.There are no dependencies for this Equipment.I tried to remove the equipment by following procedure:
1) Changed the status of Equipment to DLFL.
2) Executed the program RIARCEQ1 through SE38 and got the following message
"no other usage found, status DEFL/DEIN possible"
3) Used Txn SARA for archiving object PM_EQUI and created a variant under Schedule writing and selected equipment for deletion and under control parameters I selected Generate archive file and Detail Log.
4) Start date and spool parameters maintained.When I clicked on Execute button I am getting following error message
"Maintain the variants for the deletion program first"
5) Later when I selected Schedule deletion, I am not getting any archive objects.
Am I doing anything wrong? Can any one pls provide me the actual steps to delete this equipment permanently from data base?
