2007521 - How to Delete a Reporting Line Unit


You have replicated a Reporting Line Unit successfully. But now you receive an error when you try to create a Company Code which has same ID of the Reporting Line Unit, and then you want to delete that Reporting Line Unit in order to create the new Company Code.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Cockpit work center.
  2. Click on Edit Company Codes under Input and Output Management section.
  3. Under Details: Company Codes of Company click on Add Row.
  4. Fill in the required data.
  5. Click on Save.

The following error message is displayed:
ID XYZ not permitted; ID already in use

Note: XYZ is the same ID used for the Reporting Line Unit.


The system checks ID’s between Reporting Line Units and Company Codes objects.

  1. Make sure there is no subordinate RLU and no assigned employees for that Reporting Line Unit.
  2. Create a new replication request by copying the existing one which created the Reporting Line Unit.
  3. After a few minutes, you can log on to your SAP Cloud for Travel and Expense system and verify the replication request.
