BOM can only be extended via Master Recipe

When you are in Process Industry environment the Bill of Material is maintained in a recipe in transaction C202. If you try to maintain it directly through CS02 the system will give you the error: “BOM can only be extended via Master Recipe”.

In some cases it may be necessary to still maintain the BOM in CS02 even though you are in a process environment. To bypass the error where it is not possible to create a BOM once a Master Recipe was maintained for a material implement SAP note 651282. This will allow you to change the status of the message to either warning, error or no message at all.

    I am in need of a procedure where I can remove alternative BOM’s. Either through recipe maintenance or otherwise. As stated you cannot use CS02 to delete BOM’s once a Recipe for a material has been created. I have tried working backwards. First deleting the PV via C223, then deleting the MR without archiving via C298. But CS02 still will not allow me to delete the BOM.

    I want to delete a BOM. It says it can only be done via the master recipe. However the master Recipe and production version were already deleted with C298 and C223. So how can I get rid of the BOM now? I need to change the base unit of measure on the material and then recreate the BOM and recipe.
