By | February 26, 2021

There are multiple screens in sage 300 and visibility of those can be managed using the grp file.In this blog we will be going to discuss the same.

Sometimes there are users in our organization that maintain our finance department and they looks after the number of transaction like payable and receivable. So for that users other screen are not important to be visible and also they may not know about other screens functionality, so we can prevent them using those other screens.

New Stuff: Errors during load Customized Box

For e.g. we can make the screen visible only for admin user.

Step 1:- Open a module for which we need to make changes.


Step 2:- selecting the grp file of the module

We can find the file in directory above: c:\dev\GD\source\eng\resource

Step 3:- Adding a code for making the screen visible to admin only.

  1. Change the value of “rsc” as admin so only admin user can see this screen.

Step 4:- Adding the files to the ERP.

After the code is added to the grp file, make the project, resource and INIT view. The newly generated file can be found at path “C:\Dev\GD\build32\runtime\”. Now copy all the recently updated files from the runtime folder and paste it in the Sage 300 Programs directory under GD67A folder.

Step 5:- Login sage 300 with admin user and activate the GD module from data activation. The screen is visible to only admin user.
