2734363 - You cannot Delete Sales Documents that were Depersonalised


You have depersonalized a sales document (such as an opportunity). Now you want to delete this document but you get the message: "Document is depersonalized and cannot be deleted”.

You would like to either revert the fact that the sales document was depersonalized and then delete it OR be able to delete the sales documents which are depersonalized.

  5. Try to delete the opportunity clicking on the bin icon.
