How to find the column name in sage 300 database from the screen

By | May 24, 2018

Sage 300 provides a functionality where user can find the field (column) name used in the database to store the values. Usually, developers have the Sage 300 SDK where details about the database is specified which is used for the select/update purpose. We have another workaround using which the user can have the database column name even if doesn’t have SDK.

Sage 300 ERP screens have the finder(lookup) available on most of the screens. The finder lists out the columns with the description as the column heading. This column heading is the Field description specified by the Sage 300.

We have a functionality available in the finder which displays the Field value (column name) instead of Sage 300 field description as the column heading.

Navigate to Settings Menu → Field Name as Column Heading.

If “Field Name as Column Heading” is selected, the column name will be displayed as the heading in the grid.

So, Field Name as Column Heading is helpful when we want to find the column name used in the database table without using the SDK.
