Displaying Archiving Objects and Tables


Each archiving object archives specific tables as set in the definition of the archiving object in transaction AOBJ. If you do not know which tables are archived using which archiving object or vice versa, you can use this procedure to determine:

·         The archiving object that archives a particular table

·         Which archiving objects can be used to archive the tables in question

There are number of export, filter, and search functions that you can use here. For more information about the SAP List Viewer (ALV) functions available here, see SAP List Viewer (ALV) Grid Control (BC-SRV-ALV)
