Getting Error While Doing Data Archiving

Dear Experts.

Since our SAP system performance is slow, so we are planing to archive transaction data which older than 2 years. First we have started MM_EKKO object via T-code SARA.

In pre-processing phase we are getting spool output like below,

Item category finds no entry in application-specific Customizing

No items for this purchasing document can be deleted

Screen shot has been attached. Please Let us know how to solve this error...

Thank You

    All required PO’s are needs to be set the deletion indicator at Header Level (in EKKO). Unable to archive the PO’s without deletion flag.

    Please refer consulting note 401318 - Archiving: Additional information

    and 456129 - FAQ: Archiving in purchasing

    Useful SAP help link
