Original/Original file is the actual file, which is managed via the document management. The processing is controlled by a document information record; for example:

  • Workstation application for the processing of the original file
  • Maintenance of the filed location (path in the file system, security domain)

Example:

  •     Text file:
    • Application: Microsoft Word
    • Filed location: front-end computer P09324 (PC with operating system Windows NT)
    • Path in the file system: d:\text01.doc
  •     Graphic file:
    • Application: PowerPoint
    • Filed location: Archiv_01 (Archive, which is defined via the SAP ArchiveLink)
    • Path in the file system: without indication (System automatically detects the archive document ID)
