there are 4 steps for archiving the sales orders:
please use t.code SARA and enter the archiving object - SD_VBAK.
1.preprocedure - optional
2. write - in that please enter document type and range of sales orders.
3. deletion - delete it.
4. read - if you want to check the sales orders archived then go to read.
A folder is created on the name.
take the help of an ABAPER or BASIS to reactivate the sales order number and reuse it
hope this clears your issue.
When i did your process i am getting an issue
The problem is that when i go for delete it ask's me archiving objects when I press the Archiving Selection programm
In the screen below there are no options and therefore no job can be scheduled
Please tell me what to do in this case
Thanks and Regards
Check in tcode AOBJ the object SD_VBAK. Check reports for preprocessing, archiving and deleting. Search notes, usually there are useful notes about arch.objects. Check dependencies. For instance, in archiving the system check if you must delete before deliveries and invoices. The help of a Basis Consultant is important to avoid problems with the growth of thelog of system during the deletion of data(tcode DB02).
The best way to obtain information is notes and the info icon in reports of archiving.
Please go through the following notes:-
=> Note 314330 - Enhancements for the selection criteria SD_VBAK
=> Note 387262 - SD-archiving: Long deletion time
=> Note 507691 - Archiving: SD-dependent check for sales documents
=> Note 710057 - BADI for archiving object SD_VBAK
