Reloading Archive Files (FI)

Before reloading data, you must ensure that the appropriate archive files are on the local drive so that the program can access them. The procedure for reloading data is similar to that for archiving data, and is the same for every archive object.

To reload data:

  1. From the G/L, Accounts Receivable or Accounts Payable menus, choose Periodic processing ® Archiving ® <Archive object name> ® Reload.
  2. The system displays the Archive Management: Reload Archive screen.

  3. Enter a variant and choose Maintain.
  4. The system displays the selection screen for maintaining variants. Here you can limit the amount of data for reloading into the system by entering the appropriate selection criteria.

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

    If the reload program is started in test mode, the system only simulates the reload run. The system does not change data in the database or in the archive.

    – Detail log

    The detail log records information on each archive object.

  7. Choose Back.
  8. The system asks you whether or not 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 for your variant.

  9. Choose Save to save your variants.
  10. Choose Back to return to the Archive Management: Reload Archive screen.

  11. On the Archive Management: Reload Archive screen you must:
  12. – Select the archive from which data should be reloaded

    – Enter the start date for the reload run

    – Enter the spool parameters for the reload run.

  13. Once you have maintained the above selection criteria, archive entries, start date, and spool parameters, choose Create job.

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.
