Per PeopleBooks, Vendor Archiving will archive various Supplier tables that start with VENDOR and VNDR. However, one of the tables not listed is the VENDOR_LANG table.

Since the VENDOR_LANG table is not archived, this causes issues with the Populate Vendor Name History (VNDR_HST_POP) process.

When "Supplier Name History" is checked on the Set Controls-Supplier page, and the Populate Vendor Name History (VNDR_HST_POP) process is ran, the process will run to No Success with an error.

File: e:\pt85308b-retail\peopletools\src\psappeng\aedebug.hSQL error. Stmt #: 1623 Error Position: 179 Return: 1400 - ORA-01400: cannot insert NULL into ("SYSFS"."PS_VNDR_NAME_HS_LN"."EFFDT") Failed SQL stmt: INSERT INTO PS_VNDR_NAME_HS_LN (SETID , VENDOR_ID , EFFDT , LANGUAGE_CD , VENDOR_NA ME_SHORT , NAME1 , NAME2 , VNDR_NAME_SHRT_USR , OPRID_MODIFIED_BY) VALUES ('SHARE' , '134146' , NULL , 'JPN' , 'JPNGALILEO-001' , '株式会社ガリレオ' , ' ' , 'JPNGALILEO' , 'q723541')

The Populate Vendor Name History (VNDR_HST_POP) process failed due to archived Vendors being in the VENDOR_LANG table, but not in the VENDOR or VENDOR_ADDR tables. There appears to be no history (archive) record for the VENDOR_LANG table. Therefore, Vendors that are archived are now orphaned in the VENDOR_LANG table, and the VNDR_HST_POP process uses this VENDOR_LANG table during the population of the VENDOR_NAME_HST record.

1. Log into a multi-language database, selecting the Language = Français du Canada
2. Navigate to Fournisseurs > Données fournisseur > Ajout et mise à jour > Fournisseur
3. Add a new Vendor
4. Save the Vendor
5. Through SQL, query the VENDOR_LANG table for the Vendor ID that was added in Step 3
6. Vendor ID from Step 3 should display on the VENDOR_LANG table
7. Navigate to PeopleTools > Archive Data > Find Data page
8. Find Archive Data for Vendor ID added in Step 3/4
Field Name = VENDOR_ID
Value to Match = Vendor ID added in Step 3/4
9. Click Find Data
10. The VENDOR_LANG table is found
11. Build the Archive Project
12. Archive Designer page will show the Archiving Record = VENDOR_LANG but it does not have a corresponding History Record
13. Run the Archiving process
14. Once the Vendor is archived, query the VENDOR_LANG table for the Vendor ID that was added in Step 3/4
15. Vendor ID still exists on the VENDOR_LANG table
16. Vendor does not exist on the VENDOR or VENDOR_ADDR table
