Archived Shopping Carts

Hello Experts,

SRM 5

Classic Scenario

R/3 4.6c

We have gone through the documentation regarding Archival in SRM and have a query -

1. Are the archived shopping carts physically deleted from the SRM database?

2. What is the indication that a shopping cart has been archived? Is there any report which can give this list? Is it possible to check in BBP_PD?

3. Can archived Shopping Carts be used for creating new Shopping Carts ie using the 'Old Purchase Orders and Templates' option can we refer to an archived Shopping Cart while creating a new Shopping Cart (we will not be creating any templates but directly using the archived Shopping Cart for copying the data).

Any pointers are appreciated.

Thanks.

Regards,

Amish

    Hello Amish,

    1- Yes.

    2- If you look for your document in BBP_PD, the document will not be find as it was deleted from data base.

    3- No: you can just read the document from its archive.

    For more informations about archiving documents, read link below:

    Hi Laurent,

    Many thanks for your quick reply.

    I checked both the articles.

    There is no mention of the fact that the archived SC can not be used for creating a new SC. Can you please confirm on your reply on # 3 below.

    Regards,

    Amish

    • Hello Amish,

      For me, a document being archived can no longer be used inside a data flow (even as reference) as it was deleted from the database.

      Nevertheless, i let archiving experts to confirm or not what i wrote.

      Regards.

      Laurent.
