Data Views

Simplify reporting of Sage 300 Optional Fields

  • Turn Optional Fields into columns for easy report writing
  • Create a View once, making it available to all report writers
  • Speed up report running through more efficient access to data

Data Views Features & Usage


  • Optional Fields become columns, so no need for Crystal sub-reports
  • Data Views is developed in the Sage 300 SDK
  • Your custom Data Views form part of the Sage 300 database, and are included in the standard Sage 300 Dump and Load utilities
  • Views can be recreated from Sage 300 after an upgrade

Use Case Example

  • AR Customer table is ARCUS
  • You have 6 Optional Fields stored in ARCUSO.
  • You want to write a Cyrstal Report including all those fields

Without Data Views, you would need to:

  • Include 6 outer joins to ARCUSO table, or;
  • Write 6 subreports to pick up each of the Optional Fields

With Data Views, you simply:

  • Join the ARCUS and ARCUSO tables into a single database view (e.g. EBCUS)
  • Use the new EBCUS view in your the Crystal Report


  • Features relate to the latest supported version.
  • Data Views requires Sage 300 System Manager.
