Create an ADC screen in Sage X3

By | November 30, 2012

Automated Data Collection (ADC) in Sage X3 provides efficient solutions addressing staff efficiency in warehouse management, including accuracy and timeliness.

Sage X3 comes with numerous ADC screens that can be accessed through RF terminals. However, in some scenarios, it is desired to have custom/new ADC screen that can be accessed through RF terminal or Web Server.

So, this blog will take through a short journey of creating an ADC screen in Sage X3.

  1. Create a copy of an existing ADC screen, generally one that starts with ‘V’ and has size set to ‘VT Screen’. This would save a lot of configuration task on this screen.
  2. Make sure that the Activity code is set to ‘ADC’ and Size is set to ‘VT Screen’.
  3. Add fields and code as required for the screen.
  4. Now let us create the Window for the VT Screen. Select the ‘Active’ and ‘VT Window’ option. Select the respective module and Window type.
  5. Set the Header screen to ‘AVTENT’ by default.
  6. Add the VT Screen that we have created. Finally add buttons if required.
  7. Now create an Action that would call load up the VT Window. Set the Main window to The VT Window we created.
  8. Finally create a Function with Parent Menu set to ‘VXADI’ and Action code set to the action we just created.
  9. Run ‘Menu Validation’ from ‘Development > Utilities > Dictionary > Validations > Menus’ and restart Sage X3 client. You should see the newly added ADC screen under ‘ADC’ module.
  10. Now confirm if the screen is functioning as expected and then we can make it visible on the RF Terminal screen.

Following are the steps to make an ADC screen visible in RF terminals:

  1. Go to ‘Parameters > Users > Menu Profiles’ and right click on the node to which the newly created ADC window is to be added.
  2. Click on ‘Add a Function’ and select the Function corresponding to the ADC window.

Click on save and check if the RF terminal and you should see the newly added option under the respective node.
Hope this blog was helpful and we will be exploring and writing more on ADCs in Sage X3.
