Archiving Log (FI-SL)

In Special Purpose Ledger, you can choose between a standard log and an extended log.

Standard Log

The standard log created for each archiving session or archive file lists the number of archiving objects for each archive by table name. For more information, see The Standard Log .

Extended Log

The extended log contains the information from the standard log plus statistics on the number of records found for each Customizing combination that meets the selection criteria you entered. It lists the summary and actual and plan line item tables, and the number of records found in the tables for each Customizing combination.

If an average-balance ledger or export ledger is assigned to the ledger you entered in the selection criteria, the extended log also contains information on the number of records found for these ledgers.

When counting the number of Customizing records, the system uses an algorithm that is different from the one used during the archiving session. You should check the results of the extended log against the final result of the archiving session for discrepancies. Any discrepancies could indicate inconsistencies.
