Small Blue Ltd’s Archiving software is installed independently of BPCS with its own stand-alone, green screen menu.
For each BPCS area, the software has:
Built-in security, allowing authority to be given to selected users.
Functionality to select the date field to be used for archiving and to set the number of days to retain data.
Ability to archive user defined files (i.e. extension files), using key fields to link to the BPCS driving file.
The archived data is stored in a user defined library. There is no need to create this library or keep it on your system as the software will create it if it cannot be found. In addition, a different library can be defined if you wish to keep periodically archived data in separate libraries.
Once the data has been archived, it can still be visible using BPCS enquiry and reporting programs, query or your own reports.
