Document in BSEG but not in BKPF. Message displays Document not in Database

Good day!

We are using SAP 4.6C.

Our client wants to display a document posted some time ago using FB03.

The message displayed, "Document not in database. Search Document archive?"

I looked for the document in BSEG and found that the document exists there.

However, the document header data are missing in BKPF.

Is there a transaction code that could have archived/removed the data in BKPF while

not changing anything in BSEG?

Could there be a way to retrieve these data?

Thank you!

This warning message usually is showed because you dont have the following record:

Check Transaction SM30 for table ARCH_REPOW

Object Type Program name


TYPE should be blank.Then try again.

Best Regards,
