If you need to make an archived PI in v8 as active:
1 – Backup the entire PITOOL folder.
2 – Copy the PITOOLArchiveSTORE.DAT & .IX to PITOOL, overwriting what’s already there.
3 – Open the STORE.DAT in DVS > Repair and make the following changes:
dtUpdated = Changed it to 0 (Updated date)
UpdatedBy = Deleted any entry (User that updated the PI)
UpdateMethod = Changed to umNone(0) (1 means updated and has a value of umAll(1) )
ArchiveNum = Changed to 0 (1 indicates an archived PI)
4 – Apply the changes and the PI should be able to be updated with no problems.
