    The short documents are actually a field extract of archived material documents, having the most important inforamtion.

    When you archive material documents then authomatically the table MARI (short documents) is filled.

    When the "Short Docs" parameter is set in MB51, only those index records are read that point to the actual archived MM documents. This function is faster than reading the complete MM documents in the archives.

    Much more details can be read in Note 599966 - MB51: Use of the archive information system instead of MARI
