Cannot open file error in view creation

By | April 30, 2021

As we all are aware that in Sage 300 we can create Custom views, in this blog we are going to discuss something about it. Before creating a view we need to create a folder necessary for it to store the files after making a view.

New Stuff: Sage 300 Error: Can’t create control

Sometimes while making a view, fatal error occurred ‘link’: return code ‘0x450’. Please refer the below screenshot.

Fatal error

By looking at this error developer did not understand what the error is, so check the error file on the path where the error log file is generated like here path :- “c:\Dev\gt\source\eng\resource”

Below is the screenshot of the error file:

There are more chances where a developer misses a minor change that is required for view creation. After the make command the dll gets created, but if the specific folder is not available then this error can occurs.

Here in this case the Eng. folder is missing. The developer needs to verify the folder structure in order to avoid those kind of errors.
