    Hi Shiva

    Most likely you're going to have to provide more detail to what you're seeing, what you expect to see etc for anyone to give a decent answer to your question.

    You're sure you have the proper understanding of data aging? It only moves data to the cold storage area meaning the data doesn't reside "in-memory" but instead resides on disk and when you call it it's loaded into in-memory. So data aging is a way to save memory for documents that are seldomly called up, check the definition here:

    Data Aging for Financial Accounting Documents - SAP Library

    Hope this helps, otherwise, like I said, please specific (with screenshots preferably even) what you mean ~ ps: I'm not a functional consultant so maybe it is clear for other but I don't see any replies just yet so just trying to help you out here.

    • Hi,

      Have you configured the residency times for finance documents? Setting up the Aging Framework is one activity, you also need to consider the application configuration related to Aging.

      As mentioned by Tom, it is important to distinguish between Archiving (removal from DB) and Aging (memory displacement to disk)...if you have been specifically asked to Archive then you probably need to dig into a bit more detail around the requirements and make sure that the requestor understands the difference between Archiving and Aging.

      There are changes around the Archiving Objects where they are replaced by Aging Objects (not for everything yet) as the approach is different in HANA and S4.
