    Pretty detailed instruction

    But I actually miss some very important points.

    All those screens have many fields, but you do not explain in single word about the importance of those fields, why you entered the values, why you left other field empty, why you activated some  boxes or why you did not. You create job job logs, you get spool files, but they are neither shown nor mentioned. And exact this part is missed by many freshers who are posting their questions in forums. if they had read the info from the spool or job log, then I am sure we had 50% less questions.

    And last but least, why is this posted in ABAP forum, there is not a single coding line, the archiving forum in SCN is here: Information Lifecycle Management

      Dear Jurgen,

      Thanks for the comments.. πŸ™‚

      We just need to follow the above sequence of steps for SAP archiving activity. I accept it is not ABAP consultant activity. As per my understanding, respective functional and BASIS consultants need to perform this activity.

      Some fields i have intentionally blocked(i mean white color marked). Rest all selections are standard!! Job triggering and other activities are standard ones.

      Honestly, I was confused while creation of the document in SCN. I do not have an idea in which forum i should post this! Now, I cannot change this!!

      From my end, I am happy if anyone places/transfers the same in appropriate forum. πŸ™‚

      Thanks for the help..

      Regards

      Kiran N
