Archiving Bank Master Data (FI)

To archive bank master data:

  1. From the G/L, Accounts Receivable or Accounts Payable menus, choose Periodic processing ® Archiving ® Banks ® Archive.
  2. The system displays the Archive Management: Create Archive screen.

  3. Enter the variant name and choose Maintain.
  4. To limit the number of master records archived, use the following selection criteria:
  5. – Bank country

    The system archives only those banks from the country or countries you specify here. If you do not enter a country, the system archives bank master data for every country.

    – Minimum number of days in the system

    The system archives all banks that have been in the system for the minimum number of days you specify here. (The system calculates the number of days starting from the date the bank master data was created).

    – "Only with delete flag" indicator

    If you set this indicator, the system archives only those banks that have a delete flag set.

  6. Enter the appropriate selection criteria and, if necessary, maintain these program parameters:
  7. – Test run

    If archiving is started in test mode, the system only simulates the archive run. The system neither writes data to archive files nor deletes data from the database.

    – Detail log

    The detail log records information on each archived object.

  8. Choose Back.
  9. The system asks you whether you want to save your values. Choose YES to save your data.

    The system then displays the Save Attributes of Variant (variant name) screen on which you must enter a description of your variants.

  10. Choose Save to save the variants.
  11. Choose Back to return to the Archive Management: Create Archive Files screen.

  12. Enter the start date and spool parameters.
  13. Having maintained the selection criteria, start date, and spool parameters, choose Create job. Choose Job overview to display the status of the jobs you created.
