Archiving Criteria

When you archive documents, the system writes them (including change documents and long texts) to one or more archive files.

A number of conditions must be met to ensure that only those documents that are no longer needed in the online system are archived. To determine whether a document can be archived, the archive program checks the document header and line items.

The following conditions concern the document header:

You specify document life based on the type of document (for example, customer payment). For more information, see Document Life in Financial Accounting (FI).

The following conditions concern the line items:

The account or document life runs from the key date you enter for each program run.
