Printing Archived billing documents

5 pts.
We are in the process of archiving our SD documents. One of the issues we are facing is that once the SD invoice document has been archived, it can no longer be printed (or at least we can't figure a way to do it). Does anyone have information on how to print an invoice once it has been archived? Can an invoice be printed post archive? This will impact our archiving strategy and timeline as different countries have required timelines on how far back a document has to be available for. Any help will be appreciated, thanks Rich

Good Question, the invoices that are archived are not necessarily the ones that are printed.

This is because the SD_VBRK archive object archives the raw invoice data, not the invoice image that is printed.

In my experience it is possible to create a customised Abap to re-print invoices in your specific format from the archive files. Have a look at the example read program S3VBRKAU for how to access the archive data files.

An alternative is to only archive invoices after they have been paid for a specific length of time.

There are documented user exits within the archive programs to allow you to write any extra validation you require.

Hope this helps
