Hello,

 

I'm trying to delete an Item with just one Revision.

That Revision contain a Bom with Option. I have this message :

If I try to delete Options in the PSE I have this message:

Do you have idea how can I delete the Item ?

 

Thank you in advance.

Best regards.

You're not going to like this. Deleting an Item can be difficult and always starts with "Where Used" which will give you a list of every BOM (this) Item Revision is used in. You have to REMOVE the Item Revision from everywhere it is used. After removing it from every other BOM its used in then perform a "Where Referenced" and cut it from Folders etc. Basically resolve all the where referenced objects.

Finally you can delete the Item.

Thank you for your quick response.

 

I think I already done that.

 

The BOM is emptyThe BOM is emptyThe where usedThe where usedThe where referencedThe where referenced

 

In the Where referenced we can see a loop !

 

But I already can't delete the Item.

 

Regards

You have some things hidden like the Item Revision Master (under the Item Revision) and the Item Master (Under the Item) as well as the BOMView (under the Item). Can you delete the BOMViewRevision?

The multiple revisions you see when where referenced from the Item are the "versions" of the Item Revision. You only see the latest in the UI. Copy each of the Item Revisions listed into your Home folder and make sure there isn't anything under them too.

Where referenced isn't in a loop. Its showing you what you asked for because you are going multiple levels. Stay at a single level when performing this task.

I deleted the BomViewRevision.

But when I send the ItemRevision in the PSE, I already see options (I think that my problem).

I'm surprised to see options since the BOMViewRevision (and the BOMView) were deleted? I would have thought that would have broken any links to the VariantRevision, VariantExpression and VariantExpressionBlock objects.

Can you delete the variants then delete the BVR again (assuming it was created when sent to SM).

Hello Randy,

 

I'm not sure to understand the help documentation : "Pour supprimer une expression de variante nommée depuis la base de données, sélectionnez-la ligne de NVE dans le diagramme XO et cliquez sur X."

I'l not sur what is "NVE and XO" but here is what i trying to do :

 

1. I select the Item; 2. I select the option i want to delete; 3. I clic on the delete icon1. I select the Item; 2. I select the option i want to delete; 3. I clic on the delete icon

After clicking on the delete icon, this error message appear:

Option MKT 2.png

 

Do you have any idea ?

 

Best regards,
