Deleting Structures

Note that you can only delete a structure in the ABAP Dictionary when it is no longer used in other objects (for example as a substructure in other tables or structures). You can get an overview of where a structure is still being used with Utilities ® Where-used list.

Proceed as follows to delete a structure:

  1. Enter the name of the structure in the initial screen of the ABAP Dictionary.
  2. Select object type Structures.
  3. Select Dictionary object ® Delete.

    A dialog box appears in which you are asked to confirm the deletion request.

  4. Confirm the deletion request.

The structure is now deleted if it is no longer being used in other objects.
