I don't believe there is a specific command in DA to archive data. I have had success, however, with selecting "view raw data" from the "file" dropdown menu. A separate window will open with the raw data in it. Click inside the window and use Ctrl-A to select all (it will highlight all the text in the window). Then copy and paste to Notepad. Save the Notepad data as a text file. To re-import it into DA, use the "Import specific file" command from the "file" dropdown menu.
The only shortcoming I can see is that when you general a chart using the imported data, the chart will show the date as undetermined. So long as you properly label the charts, it shouldn't be a problem. I label mine through the way I name them, e.g. SLP 090909 1100Z.jpg or something similar.
The date may show properly if you give your Notepad file a DA extension. I haven't tried that yet as I've been somewhat lazy archiving data.
Hope that helps.
