Archiving in Cost Object Controlling (CO-PC-OBJ)

Use

This section explains how to archive the following:

General cost objects are used in the Costs for Intangible Goods and Services component.

Cost object hierarchies are used in the Product Cost by Period component.

You use the archiving object CO_KSTRG to archive these business objects.

General cost objects and cost object nodes, including the highest cost object node of a cost object hierarchy designating the cost object hierarchy, are represented technically by cost object IDs.

This section will therefore use the term cost object ID to refer to both general cost objects and cost object nodes.

Features

Copies the specified cost object IDs and their transaction data from the database into archive files, and then deletes this data from the database.
