  1. Login to the Sage 100 System with Admin credentials and open the Role maintenance screen.
  1. Un-check the option “Allow Automatic Display of Full Extended Item Description When Not in Grid” and save the role.
  2. Now, re-start the Sage 100 system so that the Role settings can take effect.
  3. Everything is set; you can now navigate through the Items without getting the Pop-up.
