Sage intelligence reports have a feature where you can Export modified report from source system and Import the report in the Target system.

For deploying the reports in another system, first we have to export it from the source system. Refer below steps for exporting the reports:-

Exporting Reports: –

1. Go to Report manager and select the desired report. For example, let us choose Custom Inventory Master by Monthly report.
2. Right click on the desired report and select Export Report.


3. You can also select Export report icon present on Report Manager Toolbar in order to export report.


4. Select the desired Version in which you need to export the report.  Please note: – If a report is being exported to be used in another system then the report should be exported with a Metabase version lower than or equal to the target system.
5. Click OK and select the Export folder Click Save.
6. The export function creates a compressed file. With an .al_ extension which can be imported into other systems. Also, the uncompressed version of the file will create a file with the extension .alx.

Using import facility, Reports export files (.alx files) and compressed export files (.al_ files – version 3.5 and later) can be distributed to other Sage Accpac Intelligence systems. Refer below steps for Importing the reports:-

Importing Reports:-

1. Right click on the folder in which you need to import the report.
2. Select Import Report.


3. You can also select Import report icon present on Report Manager Toolbar in order to import report.
