Hi Gurus,

We have many unused materials in our production Server. Our management has asked to remove the same. so i tried the concept of Data Archival. i am able to view the Archived record when i select the purchase object - MM_EBAN . i am able to delete the Requistion From certain Dates . in the same way i triesd with the Material Master . I am Facing Problem in that .
Kindly Guide and inform where i have Gone wrong.

I have put the Deletion Flag for this Material V0110440211100481

Message:  New archiving job was scheduled

When I select the Read option I am  getting the below screen.
This is in my Production Server.

Development Server

In SM37 it shows object is Finished. But No spool list is available for the job.
The Symbol is differently displayed.

Selected the Management Button after the Read Selection

Now I am able to get the Spool list.

I am not able to view the archived material.
In the same way I am not able to select the archived material for Deletion also.

Summary of the procedure
