Best way to remove sales orders? Archive or Copy Company?
Hello To all, This questions is aimed at the experience Baan users
I have a question, after 8 years of use of BaanIVc4 we are going to run out soon of sales orders.
We will have to delete old sales orders,
But we want to save the old orders, there is a discussion here what is preferred to use archiving, which would require us to upgrade porting set and its been a log time since any corrections where installed on the system.
OR copy the entire company into a different company / server and then (after testing) delete all orders
OR Copy all tables in to an Oracle server and access all tables using Crystal reports Or Cognos or Oracle reporting tools
And after we are confident (and test the delete process) that there are no problem remove all the old sales orders, we will be glad to do that
So what would you recommend?
By the way upgrading to Baan 5 or 6 is not an option
