Data archiving: WM transfer requirements and orders

This blog will explain how to archive WM transfer orders and requirements via objects RL_TA and RL_TB. Generic technical setup must have been executed already, and is explained in this blog.

Objects RL_TA and RL_TB

Go to transaction SARA and select object RL_TA and RL_TB.

Dependency schedule (no dependencies for both):

Main tables that are archived:

  • LTAK (transfer order header)
  • LTAP (transfer order item)
  • LTBK (transfer requirement header)
  • LTBP (transfer requirement item)

Relevant OSS notes:

Application specific customizing

RL_TA and RL_TB don’t have application specific customizing.

Typically RL_TA and RL_TB will yield 90 to 100% documents that can be archived.

Executing the write run and delete run

In transaction SARA, RL_TA or RL_TB select the write run:

Select your data, save the variant and start the archiving write run.

Give the archive session a good name that describes sales warehouse and year. This is needed for data retrieval later on.

After the write run is done, check the logs. RL_TA and RL_TB archiving has average speed, and a high percentage of archiving (up to 90 to 100%).

Deletion run is standard by selecting the archive file and starting the deletion run.

Data retrieval

Start the data retrieval program and fill selection criteria for transfer orders:

Start the data retrieval program and fill selection criteria for transfer requirements:

In the popup screen select the wanted archive files.
