Archiving

Use

When you print SAP Smart Forms documents, you can additionally archive them electronically and link them to the application data stored in the SAP System. You can archive only output in OTF format.

Integration

At the interface of the generated function module, SAP Smart Forms provides the following standard parameters for archiving purposes:

  • ARCHIVE_INDEX
  • ARCHIVE_INDEX_TAB
  • ARCHIVE_PARAMETERS

These parameters as well as the document itself are forwarded to SAP ArchiveLink. SAP ArchiveLink is a communication interface for administering storage systems within the SAP System.

Activating Archiving

In the spool dialog, the user determines the storage mode for the document. If you suppress the dialog you must set the TDARMOD field of the Output options to '2' (Archive Only) or '3' (Print and Archive) (see also: Controlling the Spool Dialog).

For more information refer to Storing Outbound Documents in the SAP ArchiveLink Documentation.
