File automatically goes to archive folder in AL11

There is an ABAP program to generate a CSV file & save it in AL11 sap folder. Initially file is saved in that folder correctly. But around one minute later, it will go to the archive folder. Why this is happening? Is there a way to avoid this?

    Madhavi Kuruppu,

    There could be certain reasons why this is happening, below are few suggestions for you to check:

    My First Suggestion check in your program if there is any process triggered in side the program which result in this. Post that you can proceed to check below Points.

    1) This usually happens if there is any other synchronous Job which picks the file as soon as it is placed in the folder.

    2) Check with you BASIS team, if they have any functionality or business scenario for the same.

    3) Check with PI team if they have scheduled any dependent job with respect to the Job.

    4) Try to understand the business functionality of the Program from your team.

    5) Check who are all the stake holders to use the file generated.

    Also i suggest to check if there are any Jobs for this ABAP programs and if yes check in the Step details of the Job if there i any Job in sequence after this.
