We are using v3.4.375.80 and PIBaGen to generate batch data. We then use BatchView in Excel to call up our process data by batch. This works well, however, we are thinking of moving last years archives offline (not deleting). But, if we need to retrieve some data we would want to do it by batch, not time.
So, if someone asked me to retrieve old data for batch X123 how would I know what archive(s) to retrieve and register? It seems if I remove the archive, I've removed the batch data as well. This kind of request, hopefully, will be rare. Any other options?
