Custom folder in Sage 300 ERP

By | August 23, 2013

In our previous blog, we discussed how to “Create Custom Startup folder in Sage 300 ERP”, which help users to start Reports/Programs automatically, when they open Sage 300 Company desktop.
Now, in this blog we will be discussing about the same functionality, but the difference in this Custom folder is that, it does not execute Report/Program automatically when Sage 300 ERP is opened.
The name “StartUp” as folder name is keyword, whenever Sage 300 finds a folder in desktop with name “StartUp” it starts to executes, program and report placed under this folder when Sage 300 is started.

Custom folders other than “StartUp” can be used to group commonly used Reports/Programs that are not needed to execute on start up, but are required frequently by a user under one folder from different or same module in Sage 300 ERP.
Follow below mentioned steps to create Custom Folders;
