    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.

    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.
