Hi All,

I am trying to archive some inforecords , for that i am using MM_EINA archiving object in ME17. The job starts and gets cancelled immediately.The job log shows the following logs,

Job started

Step 001 started (program RM06IW70, variant Z_EINA_ARC_01, user ID ABAP)

Reading purchasing info record

Archiving session 000034 is being created

1 of 1 purchasing info records processed

Operating system message: No such file or directory

Internal session terminated with a runtime error (see ST22)

Job cancelled

I am unable to find out how the operation system message: No such file or directory error is issued, pls let me know if any technical setting are missing. Appreciate If anyone can let me know the step by step procedure for archiving inforecords.

Thanks in advance

Hello ,

Please check whether info record which you want to archieve is already marked for deletion.

The inforecord is already marked for deletion. I believe without marking for deletion archive object will not work.

you have to customize a proper file and logical path to tell SAP to where it shall write the archived data.

The file name or logical path you provided is not valid.

This customizing can either be done with transaction FILE, or directly from ME17 by clicking the customizing button followed by executing the step filename/paths client independend

it has to be a directory in the SAP file system, directly to your local C drive is not possible.
