Learning Sage X3- Day 8 of 14- How to Export Data from Sage X3

14 Days of Learning Sage X3

This is the eighth lesson in the series Learning Sage X3. As I was learning Sage X3, I came across a lot of users wanting to know how to get data out of Sage X3, so this lesson will cover how to export data from Sage X3. In this example, I picked the Products table because clients often want to do a cleanup of things related to the Product master or they want to export it to provide it to their customers or vendors.

  1. Go to Usage: Imports/Export templates
  2. Choose a template (For example, ITM)
  3. Uncheck Chrono Management box
  4. Choose whether to create the file on the server or the client. The selection determines where the data file path is located on the Sage ERP X3 Application server or on the client that is running the Export.
  5. Click OK

Choose the location of the export file you are creatingExporting Product Table Sage X3

The above was simply running an existing Export Template. To create an Import/Export template, go to Set up > Usage > Import/Export template. I will cover some of the tasks and window fields at a high level. You can find all of this information in the Help system.

A good practice to remember is if you create anything new or modify an existing Sage X3 function to use the Activity Field code. This helps you identify changes as well as prevent them from being overwritten by a future patch.

This same procedure will work for any left list.
