 +
 +You must define these values for the **archive header**:
 +
 +  * **Application**: ​ You must enter an i5/OS compatible name for this application. Use only letters and numbers, no other characters. Do not use embedded blanks.
 +  * **Description**: ​ Also enter a description for the application.
 +  * **Archive Options** (iView 4): Select one of these options for archiving the original spool file:
 +<​html><​table width="​100%"​ border="​0">​
 +<tr>
 +<td width="​10%">&​nbsp;</​td>​
 +<td width="​90%"></​html> ​              
 +         * ***RETAIN** Retain the original spool file in the original outqueue ​     ​
 +         * ***ORIGINAL** Archive the original spool file in the archive outqueue
 +         * ***SYSTEM** Archive the spool file post processing - i.e in whatever state iView leaves it
 +         * ***NONE** ​  Do not archive ​         ​
 +<​html></​td></​tr>​
 +</​table></​html>​
 +  * **Proc Options** (iView 4): Processing options. This controls archived spool file ownership in many cases, and the user profile under which the post ftp command executes if specified.
 +<​html><​table width="​100%"​ border="​0">​
 +<tr>
 +<td width="​10%">&​nbsp;</​td>​
 +<td width="​90%"></​html> ​              
 +
 +  * ***SYSTEM** ​     Use iView system profile.  ​
 +  * ***SPLFOWNER** ​  Use the profile of the owner of the original spool file. 
 +
 +<​html></​td></​tr>​
 +</​table></​html>​
 +
 +  * **Target Format**: Only ***PDF** is supported at this time.
 +  * **iDocs Application**:​ If blank, iView will archive the entire spool file page. If the name of an existing iDocs form or check application is entered iView will archive the output from this application instead of the original spool file. To prompt for a list of existing iDocs applications library FMG should be in the library list below the iView library. Please note that the iDocs application should not sort/burst; that should be done in iView.
 +
 +At least 1 **archive index field** must be defined. This information will be scraped from the first page of all archive documents and stored in an index. Searches in the archive will operate on this data. Specify as follows:
 +
 +  * **Edit Mask**: ​ Specify a field type using the edit mask field. C for character field is the most commonly used value.
 +  * **Decimal Places**: If edit mask D for decimal format was specified, enter the number of decimal places. Otherwise, leave this field set to 0.
 +  * **Field Description**:​ Enter a character description of the field you are defining. This is for display purposes only.
 +  * **Spool Row/Column Start/​End**: ​ Specify the location in the spool file page of the index data. 
 +
 +^Multi-row index field behavior^Release^
 +|Only data in 1 row can be specified| iView 3 and earlier|
 +|multi row indices permitted; row values trimmed and separated by 1 blank| iView 4 and iView 5 | 
 +|multi row indices permitted; row values not trimmed or separated | iView 5.50 |
 +
 +Specifying multirow indices generates a large search index database. Note that there is no way to upgrade multi-line indices created prior to 5.5 to the 5.5 format as trimmed data is of uncertain format; the indices remain usable for searching.
 + 
 +  * **Sort Order**: ​ Specify the sort order. Zero means no sort. 
 +  * **Burst**: ​ Burst the document when the index value changes. **Y** or **N**. Remember that the search indices are only populated from data from the first page of documents, so bursting will impact what data goes into the search indices.
 +
 +**Maximum Number of Archive Index Fields**: ​ There is a system maximum of 99 index fields. However, iView operates using dynmically generated SQL and it is very possible that iView will not process the archive when specifying a substantially smaller number of index fields. iView was designed to work with about 10 - 15 index fields in an archive.
 +
 +The archive is now defined.
 +
 +You many optionally specify:
 +
 +   * **F14**: ​ [[iviewftp | iView FTP Setup]] ​ (iView 4.0)

 +

 +User data displayed:
 +
 +  * **User ID**:  The user in question. Enter a valid user to create a user access record.
 +  * **IP**: The IP address from which the user is presently logged in (web user interface).
 +  * **Last Hit**: ​ Timestamp of the last time the user's browser invoked one of the cgi programs
 +in the web interface. Logging out clears this field.
 +
 +To grant access complete the following:
 +
 +  * **Archive Application**: ​ Use F4 to prompt or type the name of the application.
 +  * **Access**: ​ *YES to grant access. *NO is technically unnecessary since default access in iView is *NO.
 +  * **Usage**: ​ ***SEARCH** grants access to the regular iView front end for this application,​ ***VFOLDER** grants access to this application in Virtual Folders, and ***BOTH** grants both accesses.
 +  * **Folder Display**: ​ For Virtual Folders (versions 4 and earlier), specify one of these display methods: ***FOLDER** specifies that a rule specified for a directory implies the inverse of the rule for all parent directories,​ and ***FILTER** does not. Most people find *FOLDER the intuitive display method. This parameter should be set to *FOLDER in versions 5 and later. The parameter will be removed in future releases.

 +===== Application Maintenance =====
 +
 +Periodically one may want to purge older documents from an archive. To do so, go to menu IVIEWADM and select option 10.
