I have maintained the Creation Date as 11.08.2004,Direction as 2 and the Message type as DEBMAS. This would archive the Inbound IDocs for the message type DEBMAS created on 11.08.2004.List of Inbound IDocs for the above specification is given below.

As you can see that there are 15 Inbound IDocs found for the above specification in WE02.11 IDocs are in 53 Status and 4 IDocs are in 51 Status.

Now Checking the IDocs in WE02

You can see that all 53 Status IDocs have been Archived and deleted from the system. But 51 Status IDocs remains as this status cannot be archived. How to archive 51 Status IDocs?

It is quite simple to archiving the IDocs, which are in statuses that are not meant for Archiving. In our scenario I don’t want this 4 IDocs that are in Status 51 anymore.


Page 12: IDoc Archiving

Go to SE38 and execute the program RC1_IDOC_SET_STATUS. Give all the IDoc numbers, which are in status 51.Specify the status as 51 and New Status as 68.Also remove the Test Flag. Press execute button

Report Output:

Go to WE02 and Check the IDocs

FILE - Creating Platform independent File NamesSARA - Archiving AdministrationWE02 - IDoc DisplaySM37 - Job Overview

Some Additional Information on transaction FILE:

File Names that you specify in the system are Platform Specific. In order to make your ABAP Programs portable across multiple Platforms you need to create a file name independent of the Platform. This can be achieved by using the transaction FILE. The Procedure used to create a platform independent file name is given in the Steps 1 to 3.

Some Additional Information on Archiving:

Archiving is a two-step process.

1. Documents such as IDocs, Work items and Purchase Orders etc are offloaded to an archive file at the OS Level.

2. Archive File is read and the Objects are deleted from the System
