Archiving is a process in Robot Repots that stores reports. Some call this the report "retention plan."
It has three stages—online, short-term, and long-term. When the REPARCHIVE command is run, it checks archive dates and, when needed, moves reports to the next stage.
Online archive is stored in the RBTREPLIB library as individual objects.
Short Term archive stores the REPORTS in save files in the REPSHTRMLB library.
Long Term moves the save files to REPLNTRMLB library and then does a SAVLIB of that library to TAPE or OPTICAL.
