Archiving Customer or Vendor Master Data (FI)
To archive customer or vendor master data:
The system displays the Archive Management: Create Archive Files screen.
– Customer or vendor account range
– General master records indicator
If you set this indicator, the system archives only general (not chart of account-specific) data.
– Company codes
Enter company codes here if you want to include financial accounting data only.
– Sales organization, distribution channel and division
Set these indicators to include data from Sales and Distribution (only relevant when archiving customer master records).
– Purchasing organization
Set this indicator to include data from Materials Management (only relevant when archiving vendor master records).
– Test run
If the archiving report is started in test mode, the system only simulates the archive run. The system neither records date in archive files nor deletes data from the database.
– Detail log
The detail log records information on each archived object.
The system asks you whether or not you want to save your values. Select YES to save your data.
The system then displays the Save Attributes of Variant (variant name) screen where you must enter a description for the variant you have created.
Choose Back to return to the Archive Management: Create Archive Files screen.
Choose Job overview to display the status of the jobs you created.
For more information on maintaining variants, access the R/3 library and choose Working with R/3 ® Getting Started with R/3.
