3242303 - Is there a way to delete entire dictionary categories ?


We have created a large number of dictionary entries through the mass upload / import functionality. Is there a way to mass delete dictionary entries / entire dictionary categories?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


Standard dictionary categories cannot be deleted. You can delete a custom category only. Deletion is done via “Setup” > “Define notation / attributes” > Tab “Dictionary”:

Please note that you need to delete all of the attributes used in or linked with this category first.
