Business Background (SD)

The Sales and Distribution application component contains an SAP ArchiveLink function that provides sales personnel with a quick and efficient means of creating and optically archiving a wide range of outgoing Sales and Distribution documents including quotations, order confirmations, contracts, scheduling agreements, delivery notes, and invoices. SAP ArchiveLink offers easy online access to these archived documents during the planning, processing, and analyzing of business transactions in Sales and Distribution.

Archiving Outgoing Documents

Outgoing documents which you create using SAPscript are stored in an optical archive and linked to the documents on which they are based. This archiving process is carried out directly from the document being processed and output.
