SAP ArchiveLink - Scenarios in
Applications (BC-SRV-ARL)
SAP ArchiveLink® is one of the SAP Basis cross-application communication interfaces between
the SAP System and external components. External components may be general desktop
applications or external storage systems. The integration of SAP ArchiveLink in the various SAP
applications enables the storage scenarios explained in this cross-application documentation.
The documentation is structured as follows:
  An Introductory Section  (Seite 10) containing general information about storing using SAP
ArchiveLink and about the following documentation
  An application-specific section for each SAP application component (for example, FI, SD,
HR) with the relevant storage scenarios
For information on related areas, see the following documentation:

SAP ArchiveLink and Application Scenarios
SAP ArchiveLink® is one of the integrated interfaces in the SAP Basis System that can be used
to store all kinds of documents in external content servers.
SAP ArchiveLink therefore complements the existing range of SAP application software. For a
detailed description of SAP ArchiveLink, see Introduction to SAP ArchiveLink  (Extern).
The SAP application components, for example, SD, FI, HR and MM, support storing using SAP
ArchiveLink by providing various application scenarios. Inbound documents, outbound
documents, print lists, archive files, desktop files and binary files are supported.
How the inbound documents are entered in the system and forwarded for processing and storing
depends on the storage scenario used. For information about the possible Storage Strategies
(Extern) , see the documentation SAP ArchiveLink  (Extern).
This documentation describes the storage scenarios that are integrated in the SAP applications,
for example, how Sales and Distribution (SD) documents can be stored in external storage
systems using SAP ArchiveLink.
Archiving in databases using the ADK (Archive Development Kit) is not the same as
storing using SAP ArchiveLink.
For informationen about data archiving using the ADK archiving transaction, see the
documentation Archiving and Deleting Application Data  (Extern).

SAP ArchiveLink: Overview
April 2001 11
SAP ArchiveLink: Overview
Background
There is a growing trend nowadays to transfer stored data from paper/microfiche to external
“content servers” (for example, archives). Companies are obliged by law and/or internal
standards to keep documents for a certain length of time. Traditionally, paper archives or
microfilms have been used, but these methods are very expensive, either due to copying costs or
the large amount of space required by such archives. By contrast, electronic storing methods are
a much cheaper option and represent an important part of the “paperless office” concept.
SAP’s R/3 System supports a variety of business processes, which can involve documents both
in paper form and in electronic form. The documents either serve to trigger all kinds of processing
steps in FI, SD, HR and so on, or they are documents relating to processes in one of these
application areas.
When linked to SAP applications, content servers and the SAP ArchiveLink interface allow
flexible access to all document searches available in the SAP System and can therefore lead to
considerable time savings. In addition, a combination of the SAP System and SAP ArchiveLink
allows users multiple access (parallel and direct) to stored documents from their work center
without the need for time-consuming searches, which guarantees faster access to documents.
The subsequent sections of this documentation describe the integration of SAP ArchiveLink in
the functions of various application components within the SAP System.
Concept
SAP ArchiveLink provides the following interfaces:
  User interface
  Application Interface
This interface consists of function modules, which must be integrated in the SAP
applications, if SAP ArchiveLink functions are to be used.
Business objects are linked to stored documents and object methods are available that
allow storing using SAP ArchiveLink to be integrated flexibly in SAP Business Workflow.
  Interface between SAP and external components and general desktop applications
External components may be HTTP content servers, for example. General desktop
applications may be MS Word and MS Excel, for example.
Positioning SAP ArchiveLink
SAP ArchiveLink enables
  Incoming documents to be stored in the SAP System
  Information from the SAP System (for example, outgoing documents and print lists) to be
stored
  Direct access from SAP application components to stored documents
  Integration of external content servers with the SAP System
SAP ArchiveLink - Scenarios in Applications (BC-SRV-ARL) SAP AG
SAP ArchiveLink: Overview
The SAP ArchiveLink-specific Terms  (Extern) “document”, “technical document class”, “document
type”, “object type” and “synchronous storing” and “asynchronous storing” are explained in the
SAP ArchiveLink documentation, which also contains information on the Administration Concept
(Extern) (content servers, links and link tables).
Technical Basis
Links from documents to business objects are created by the generation of a link table entry,
which contains both a unique identification for each business object using the object type and
object key and a reference to a stored document using the content server ID and a unique key for
each document stored in this content server. It is therefore possible to create a link between a
business object and any number of documents using a simple 1:n relationship in a table. No
entry is required in the application tables in which the business objects are managed. If the link
table entry for an stored document is deleted, all references in the SAP System to this stored
document are also deleted. This technique allows the options for accessing stored documents to
be integrated flexibly into the SAP System.
Application Interface
The interface to the SAP applications contains the following functions:
  Linking business objects with stored documents
This function is used to display, retrieve or store stored documents directly from the
business object. An example of this is the link between an F1 business object invoice
and original invoices that have been scanned into the system.
  Linking business objects with stored outgoing documents
This function is used to store documents generated using SAPscript and link them with
the relevant business objects. Examples of documents are outbound quotations, order
confirmations, purchase orders and invoices.
  Storing print lists
The process for storing print lists is the same as for outgoing documents.
As of R/3 Release 4.6C, application objects archived in data archiving (ADK) are not
stored using SAP ArchiveLink, but rather using the Content Management Service
(Extern) of the SAP Knowledge Provider  (Extern) (KPro).
Integration Status
Many applications in the SAP System are linked directly or indirectly with SAP ArchiveLink:
  Direct link
– FI
– MM
– SD
  Indirect link
  Via the DMS (document management system): MM, PP,...
SAP AG SAP ArchiveLink - Scenarios in Applications (BC-SRV-ARL)
SAP ArchiveLink: Overview
April 2001 13
SAP ArchiveLink is centrally integrated in the DMS and all applications with object
links to the DMS are therefore linked to SAP ArchiveLink.
  Via MC (Message Control): MM, SD,...
The integration of SAP ArchiveLink in message control allows outgoing documents to
be stored.
  Via SAPconnect and the Business Workplace: Faxes
Inbound faxes can be processed directly in the Business Workplace, stored and
linked with business objects without having to be printed first.
Generic Object Services
For R/3 Release 4.0A, generic object services are provided for four SAP ArchiveLink
functions via the system menu for all SAP applications.
From the business objects implemented in the SAP applications, four SAP ArchiveLink functions
can be executed in all applications and independently of which application is involved:
  You can display the hit list of stored documents
  You can assign stored documents subsequently to a business object.
  You can store documents in dialog
  You can create a bar code for a business object
These functions are integrated into all SAP applications via object services. There is no need for
special function modules to be integrated in the applications. For more information, see Generic
Object Services  (Extern).
For these functions to work smoothly, object orientation in the SAP application and
support of object services are important.
For more information, see Business Context Facilities and Generic Object
Relationships  (Extern).

SAP System. Storage scenarios in the following application components are currently described:
  BC (Basis)
  CA (Cross-Application Components)
  FI (Financial Accounting)
  SD (Sales and Distribution)
  MM (Materials Management)
  IS-RE (Real Estate Management)
  QM (Quality Management)
  PP (Production Planning and Control)
  PM (Plant Maintenance and Service Management)
  PA (Human Resource Management)
  PY-DE (Payroll Germany)
The individual storage scenarios are structured as function descriptions and generally contain the
following sections:
Section Description
Use Business background
(this section is sometimes separate from the pure function description).
You learn which application scenarios SAP ArchiveLink supports, which
employees are involved and the advantages and simplifications offered by SAP

Storing Lists in the Report Tree (BC)
Use
This section describes the storing of lists generated by executing reports in report trees. The
process is not application-specific and is usually possible for any list unless storing is specifically
prohibited in the program.
Users can access reports that they require in the hierarchical structure of the report tree easily
from all applications, via general report selection in the SAP information system.
The SAP standard report tree contains several standard reports for all applications. To access
reports from a particular application, you must expand the structure until you reach a list of
reports on the lowest level. Here you select and execute the required report. You can display the
result on the screen or print it via the spool system.
Companies can configure the standard report tree to suit their requirements. For example, you
can add your own reports or pre-generated lists and even change the entire structure.

Storing Business Workplace Documents
22 April 2001
Storing Business Workplace Documents
Use
Documents stored in the Business Workplace  (Extern) are usually stored in the R/3 database (PC
documents and binary documents can also be stored in an HTTP content server). To save
memory space in the database, you can store documents in an external storage system using
SAP ArchiveLink. The content of the documents that you have stored using SAP ArchiveLink is
then deleted from the database.
You can only retrieve Workplace documents stored using SAP ArchiveLink from the
external storage system, from within the R/3 System. Direct access within the
storage system is not possible.
Prerequisites

ArchiveLink.
To perform mass archiving of Workplace documents, you need authorization  (Extern) for
Workplace administration. This authorization is contained in the role SAP_BPT_USER.
Activities
Proceed as described in Mass Archiving  (Extern).
The procedure for displaying and changing documents stored in the archive is no different for the
user than the procedure for documents stored in the R/3 database. Calling documents from the
archive usually takes longer, however.

Notes on archiving original application files
  The system checks the application that is used to process the original application file (for
example, WinWord 7.0).
In the IMG for the Document Management System in the activity Define workstation
applications, you define the archives for the various applications (for example, archive A2
for the application WinWord 7.0).
  The system does not log the archiving of original application files. However, in the IMG for
the Document Management System, you can define in the activity Define document types
that all field changes are to be logged (Indicator: Create change documents).
If you have archived an original application file with the function Check in archive, you
can track any changes to the storage data (fields Data carrier and Original) in the change
documents.

Creating a New Version (CA-DMS)
April 2001 27
Creating a New Version (CA-DMS)
This means that you keep the old version (for example, 00) containing the archived original
application file and create a new version (for example, 01) directly from the old version. For the
new version, you then change the original application file.
To process the archived original application file (new version):
1. On the Basic data screen, choose Document   New version.
The system copies the data of the existing version (for example, 00), including the archived
original application data.
2. In the new version (for example, 01), the original application file is still archived.
3. Choose Extras   File 1(2)   Change.
The system automatically creates a copy of the checked in original application file.
– Enter the target for the copy. This path identifies the place where the original
application file for the new version (for example, 01) is stored.
– If the system accepts your entries, you see a dialog box with the following message:

Changing an Original Application File for an Existing Version (CA-DMS)
28 April 2001
Changing an Original Application File for an Existing
Version (CA-DMS)
This means that you change the version whose original application file has been archived. There
is only one version in this case.
You can display the processing status that the original application file had in the archive from the
status log if the following applies:
When checking the original application file into the archive, you set a status for which the
Indicator: Audit function is selected. This indicator causes original application files that are
checked into the SAP database, a vault, or an archive with this status to be stored automatically.
To change the archived original application file (existing version):
1. Choose Extras   Originals   File 1(2)   Change.
The system automatically creates a copy of the archived original application file.
2. You see a dialog box, where you can enter the target for the copy. As a default value, you
see the path where the file was stored before being archived.
– To accept the default value, choose Continue.
– If you want the file to be copied elsewhere, enter the required data (data carrier,
path, and file name) in the dialog box. This path identifies the place where the
original application file for the same version is stored. The system overwrites the
previous archive data.
If the system accepts your entries, you see a dialog box with the following message:

Storing Incoming Documents (FI)
April 2001 43
Storing Incoming Documents (FI)
Use
In the FI application component, you can transfer incoming documents (invoices, credit memos)
to an external archive system using SAP ArchiveLink. Data can be stored in different ways:
  Store for subsequent entry
  Store and enter, and
  Late storing with bar codes
  Assign, then store
For detailed information on the ways in which you can store documents, see Storage
Strategies  (Extern) in the SAP ArchiveLink documentation.
The procedure Store for entry later with document parking is different to other storage
methods. Under this procedure, processing is even more automated than it would otherwise be.
The accounting clerk responsible for parking documents receives an incoming document (an
invoice for example) via SAP Business Workflow. In the entry transaction to which the invoice
is subject, the clerk can park this document using the existing incoming document. He or she can
then send the parked invoice together with the incoming document for further processing
(approval or additional investigation) to the relevant colleague. This colleague can then complete
processing and post the invoice.

Storing Outgoing Documents (FI)
Use
You can store documents transferred from the General Ledger (FI-GL), Accounts Receivable (FIAR)
and Accounts Payable (FI-AP) application components using SAP ArchiveLink. Documents
that you created using SAPscript are stored in an external storage system and linked to the
documents or accounts from which they are derived. You can store the following outgoing
financial accounting documents:
  Payment advice notes
  Checks
  Correspondence like payment notifications and bank statements
  Dunning notices
Storage using SAP ArchiveLink takes place using Business Transaction Events, to which end
SAP supplies sample function modules that you can activate by making the appropriate
Customizing settings.
If you already use your own programs (user exits) or Business Transaction Events to
manage printing, faxing, email or dispatching, check whether you need to replace
these developments with a function module enhanced to perform these functions.
IMPORTANT: Ensure that no data is overwritten.

SAP ArchiveLink - Scenarios in Applications (BC-SRV-ARL) SAP AG
Business Background (SD)
52 April 2001
Business Background (SD)
The Sales and Distribution application component contains an SAP ArchiveLink function that
provides sales personnel with a quick and efficient means of optically archiving and processing a
wide range of incoming documents including inquiries, purchase orders, contracts, and
complaints. SAP ArchiveLink offers easy online access to these archived documents during the
planning, processing, and analyzing of business transactions in Sales and Distribution.
The SAP ArchiveLink interface supports the following archiving scenarios for incoming
documents in SD:
  Early archiving
  Late archiving
  Late archiving using bar codes
  Simultaneous archiving
Early Archiving
In the early archiving scenario, incoming paper documents are archived in the R/3 System before
an SD document is created.
In early archiving, the archiving process usually begins in a central mailroom where a designated
person opens, presorts, prepares, and records (scans) the incoming mail. Once an incoming
document is scanned and an incoming document type is assigned to it, the system triggers the
SAP Business Workflow to notify the authorized employee(s) that an incoming document has
been received and is due to be processed. When the employee accesses the archived
document, the system automatically calls up the relevant business transaction, such as Create
sales order, according to the incoming document type. After the employee creates and saves the
SD document, the system automatically assigns the archived document to it.
For a detailed description of early archiving, see Early Archiving (SD)  (Seite 54).
Late Archiving
In the late archiving scenario, incoming paper documents are archived in the R/3 System and
assigned to existing Sales and Distribution documents.
In late archiving, an employee processes an original document directly from paper or carries out
a sales activity before receiving an original document. At a later point in time, the original
document is scanned into the system and archived as a facsimile. It is then assigned to the
existing SD document by:
  The person at the archiving station who scans the original documents
  The person responsible for processing the SD document
As in the scenario for early archiving, the archiving process usually takes place in a central
location at the company.
For a detailed description of late archiving, see Late Archiving (SD)  (Seite 55).
Late Archiving Using Bar Codes
Late archiving using bar codes is a special form of late archiving. In this case, however, a bar
code is attached to the incoming document either in the mail room or at the time of processing.
SAP AG SAP ArchiveLink - Scenarios in Applications (BC-SRV-ARL)
Business Background (SD)
April 2001 53
An SD document is created from the original document whose bar code ID is linked to the SD
document number. Later, the original document is scanned into the system which recognizes the
bar code ID and automatically makes the proper assignment to the SD document.
For a detailed description of late archiving using bar codes, see Late Archiving Using Bar Codes
(SD)  (Seite 56).
Simultaneous Archiving
Simultaneous archiving is a special form of early archiving in which the incoming document is
scanned into the system, optically archived and, at the same time in another window, the
corresponding SD document is created or changed. The system does not activate SAP
Business Workflow in this case; no mail is sent.
For a detailed description of simultaneous archiving, see Simultaneous Archiving (SD)  (Seite 57).
SAP ArchiveLink - Scenarios in Applications (BC-SRV-ARL) SAP AG
Early Archiving (SD)
54 April 2001
Early Archiving (SD)
The following steps describe a typical scenario in which incoming paper documents are archived
before a Sales and Distribution document is created:
1. A clerk in the central mail room of a company receives a letter from a customer who wishes
to buy several products.
2. The clerk scans the letter into a scanning system.
The system displays the letter in the scan dialog window.
3. Using the SAP ArchiveLink interface in the R/3 System, the clerk or another designated
employee selects the function for early archiving and chooses an appropriate incoming
document type for the scanned document, for example, the general description “Customer
response to a sales activity”, SDIACTRESP.
4. The clerk confirms the assignment of the incoming document type.
This triggers a workflow in which a mail is sent to the employee who is responsible for
creating sales documents, in this case Mr. Jones in the Sales department.
All employees who are to be notified by SAP Business Workflow must first be listed
in the company’s organizational structure (see Customizing for SAP Business
Workflow).
5. Mr. Jones receives the work item in his integrated inbox. When he calls up the work item for
processing, a dialog box appears in which Mr. Jones can confirm or overwrite th

  • Problem with Archive Link and User ID

    Dear Experts,
    Currently we are attaching documents to business object using archive link feature through T code OAWD. 
    when user uploaded documents & when we try to search documents with Tr. code OAAD, we are not able to find from whcih User id documents got uploaded.
    As per client requirement, we had to find from which user id documents got uploaded as around 10 user id's got authorization of uploading documents against same business object.
    Even in individual Tcodes other than tr. code OAAD of business objects where documents are seen, we don't find User Id/Creator name.
    any suggestions will be much useful...
    Thanks in advance...

    The standard archivelink tables (TOA*) do not gather this data. If this is a must have requirement then using single step workflow may give you the ability to capture this data within the workflow logs.
    To create this scenario you would enable only the storage scenario "storing for subsequent entry" within the document presettings via OAWS. Then when a document was uploaded it would create a "workitem" that is sent to the agent id. Default will be user if no setting was created in OAWS.
    The user would then have to go to their SAP workplace inbox to execute the work item and "link" the document to the transaction.
    This scenario is sometimes referred to as "early archiving" by old timers like myself.
    It is most often used in Accounts Payable scenarios where a central shared scanner is passing out many work items to a larger group.
    From TAO* Tables we can use SAP_OBJECT to Identify Invoices with PO by object BUS2081 or invoices without PO by object FIPP. From the field OBJECT_ID we can match a specific invoice number. BUS2081 shows invoice number + fiscal year as the Object id. FIPP shows Company code + invoice number + fiscal year. The ARC_DOC_ID field gives us the unique document identification string for the scanned image. AR_DATE = the date the work item is completed. This is when the invoice document is “parked”.
    A selection from table SWWLOGHIST searching for METHOD SWW_WI_STATUS_TO_COMPLETED and METH_EDATE = to AR_DATE from TOA* Table (26.06.2012) and  PARA_VAL_1 = *ARC_DOC_ID* (*aaaakkjdx1ce6yn3e3aacaerb12zi*) will provide output from which you can gather the work item ID.
    Select WI_ID then query table SWWWIHEAD for overview status of item.
    From table SWWWIHEAD you can gather such information on the work item as the work item creator WI_CREATOR, the work item status WI_STAT, creation date WI_CD,  completion date WI_AED, and work item agent WI_AAGENT.
    The WI_CREATOR will be the user who "created the workflow item" for your report.
    This a the "long way around" to overcome this lack of data being gathered by ArchiveLink documents.
    I hope this late answer is helpful for someone.

  • ICWC Document Search - Archive Link - OA_FIND

    CRM 50.
    We use SAP archive link to store smartforms and scanned in documents to the order in ECC. (scanned in PO for example)
    In CRM we set up t-code OA_FIND where it can find the documents in ECC. (business object = VBAK)
    if we open order in ICWC, the document search for that order number does not find any of the documents in SAP Archive Link.   This would be a huge win if we could figure out how to integrate this.
    IMG t-code OAC0 has 2 respositories we are using.  One is set to Document Area ARCHLINK and one is set to Document Area CRM Documents.    Only the CRM documents are ever "found" in the ICWC search.
    I tried setting up t-code OACT to have a category look at each repository but doesn't work.
    Can ICWC document search find documents in the Archive Link?????

    We wrote a custom program around the fm I mentioned above and in this blog.
    Our remaining issue is with using ERP orders instead of CRM orders that we are exploring some development options.

    Hi,
    Which storage device are you using? I can only speculate the problem. Ok. So output type is configured properly. Can you check the object type for your document type in Transaction code OAC3. Check it should be VBRK. If it is not then change it to VBRK. Now go to transcation code OAD5 and check every thing is configured there or not. If it is all done then it should work. I presume that all basic customization is done in your system.

  • Document with inline links to files on my hard drive: How do I do that?

    I want to create metadocuments on my macbook: documents that link to other documents on my macbook. These metadocuments are only for use on my macbook, so these links would have no destination if the metadocument were opened on a different computer.
    EXAMPLE
    My Projects
    Basement <link to description and drawings for basement storage and workshop>
    Yard <link to document with drawings and plans for yard>
    Book <link to current manuscript>
    Repairs <link to list of current repairs needed>
    Pictures <link to folder containing pictures needing editing>
    Links might open another Pages document, or they might open a folder in the Finder, or they might open an image in Preview or in Photoshop.
    The goal is to create a simple document that is easy to read and refer to, and that makes it very easy to find and open other documents and files on my macbook. If a different application (Firefox, for example) would accomplish this task better, I'm open to hearing that, especially if the answer includes some clues about how to do it.

    Thanks for responding so quickly.
    Didn't think I was asking for anything difficult. Pages already supports hyperlinks; all I want is for Pages NOT to change my <file:///> links to <http://file:///> links. Too much to ask, I guess.
    HTML may be the only way to go. Can you recommend a simple html editor that integrates well with Firefox on the mac?

  • Converting a document with multiple links to a word document

    I am trying to convert a PDF file with multiple links to a word document.  When the conversion is complete and the document is saved as a word document I cannot access the links - I keep getting error messages or messages that say a program is not associated with the link.

    Hi laytonbarb,
    We would like to help!
    Are they hyperlinks? If so - you will want to insert the links back in. If they are full links do they match the links on the pdf?

  • SAP Archive Link and DMS integration configuration

    Hi SAP Gurus,
    I have always come across that SAP DMS is very well integrated with SAP Archive link, is that means SAP Archive link can be used as an storage location for storing original application files, in normal DMS check in original CV01N transaction.
    does this Archive link appear as an option to be selected to store the original application file at CV01N Transaction, just like we get DMS_C1_ST (default SAP) or any ZDMS_SC01/02 (customised Storage catagories for checking in originals.)
    another side iam also comming across SAP Archive link is an entierly different Module and involves different transactions to store documents and original.and no where related to DMS.
    iam not able to draw at any conclusion weather to suggest Archive link as an storage medium for DMS check in originals, as i have not used it earlier in DMS.
    Can this SAP Archive Link server be used as an sole and single original applicaion file storing system for DMS?
    if so will it support all the DMS funtionalities, if not what is this fully integrated means, is it limited to make an copy / transfer of excess DMS files in SAP Archive server from existing DMS server? iam confused
    please clarify.
    Points awaiting for clarification.
    Thanks and regards,
    Shanti

    Dear Hill,
    Thanks for your response,
    but my confusion is not yet solved.
    let me put it in a better way,
    1) You can store a document against a DIR with the GOS icon instead of in the originals area (called Document Archiving), i did not understand this solution please eloborate. where is this GOS icon in DIR,
    2) There is one thing in menu path: Environment / check in archive.
    so can we store originals in a Archive server directly by going in to the CV01N transaction.(iam not speaking about transferring Original already stored in a content server)
    3) we are having a single archive server to Archive SAP data, can This SAP Archive  server be used as an sole and single original  file storing system for DMS Also?
    4) if so will it support all the DMS funtionalities, if not what is this fully integrated means, is it limited to make an copy / transfer of excess DMS files in SAP Archive server from existing DMS server? iam confused to suggest this solution, as the client is not kneen on buying a separate server to store DMS files.
    please clarify.
    Thanks and regards
    Shanti

  • Documents with clickable links

    I am trying to prepare a document on my Windows7 PC that contains a ton of hyperlinks.
    I do not have Word on my iPad, and I can easily create output formats (like pdf) on my PC that I can read on the iPad, but have been unable to find a format where the links are live when I open the document on the iPad.
    I've tried pdf, which doesn't seem to work.
    So, complex question (output format from Word, app on iPad, etc).  Need expert help!
    [yes, I know I can create bookmarks on the PC in Firefox or in Safari and sync them to the iPad, but the links are organized and have embedded text/commentary that I need to be linked with groups of links or individual links]

    Try the free app Kingsoft Office. You can edit word, excel and powerpoint files. You can also access your Dropbox files directly from the app.

  • Merge documents with external links

    Hi all,
    I am wondering if there is a way to automatically change external links to internal links upon merging two or more documents.
    For example:
    I have a pdf document containing a table of contents with links that point to separate "section" or "chapter" pdf files within the same root directory structure.
    I would like to merge all of the pdf files into a sinlge document and maintain the table of contents.  Currently, when I merge the documents, the table of contents links still point to the external files.  I would like the links to point to the location of the sections in the new, merged, master document.
    Is there an easy way to do this without manually changing the links?
    I'd appreciate any help.
    Thanks.

    I don't think it's possible, at least not in any simple way.

  • Documents to be linked from DMS to Production Resource Tools

    hi, All
    I want to Link some documents to PRT through DMS.
    From DMS i choosed object link Production resourec/tools.
    I searhed PR/T no result found.
    So Now i want to Know that How i could Creat PRT and Link some document to PRT.
    Any one help me
    Rgds,
    Ben

    Hi,
    I know this post is old, but to answer the question:
    Yes, you can link, using Object Linking functionality in DMS, to a PRT.
    The object is a bit obscure in the object list, but, when selecting a object in the DMS Config>Define Document Type>Define Object Link, look for the object called CRVS_B.
    This is the PRT Object Link's definition, which will then allow Object Linking functionality as required.
    The other way, as mentioned earlier, is to simply use the PRT functionality from your transaction, i.e. IA06 to link to a DIR. This has the downside though that the bi-directional navigation from DMS<>PM for example will not exist.
    Regards,
    Freddie.

  • Valid period for stored documents (Archive Link)

    Hello,
    Can someone please confirm if the stored documents within Archive Link can be retrieved after more than 10 years or is there an expire date setting?
    Thanks.

    SAP does not work like "Mission Impossible", that a document disappears itself after a certain time.
    If you archive documents, then it is still up to you, when you want to dispose this archive.
    E.g. you have to keep financial data for 10 years as requested by law.
    But you want keep your database small and want have a good performance.
    So you decide to archive everything what is older than e.g. 2 years.
    The older documents are written to an archive file and deleted from the table spaces.
    The archive can stay in the SAP file system (quickest access) or in an external archive system like IXOS.
    You have to make sure that you keep this archive with data older than 2 years for another 8 year to comply with the legal requirement.
    If the 10 years have past, then you archive the archive information (this has the info where your archive is located)  itself  and remove the indexes to the archived documents that are older than 10 years.
    Then you take the disk from the IXOS system and destroy it.
    If you dont archive the archive infos (SARA for BC_ARCHIVE) and dont destroy the archive files then you may be able to access the data far beyond the 10 years.
