Is there a way to stop archers firing?

I've noticed other posts here that mention that archers collect far more kills than other units, particularly in the early scenarios. In some cases I wanted to moderate that by letting my foot soldiers engage enemy units that had routed and then rallied. I thought they would make easy kills for my ordered troops (they certainly do for the archers). So I tried setting the archers to "passive" - which didn't work - they kept on firing . In the end I resorted to sending the archer squad to the far corner of the map. That did work at The Battle of Cadsland but probably wouldn't when there are more archer squads in larger battles.

Any ideas?

We never set up a way to stop them firing - sorry! Moving them is the only way other than making them aressive and sending them in to melee.
