Filtering the Selection List in Sage X3 without object

By | April 26, 2014

Sometimes you may come across a situation where you want to give selection on any field using tables which are not the linked tables of the object.

New StuffGuide to setup Recurring Journals

In Sage X3 we can add selection (F12 functionality) and filter the selection records as per the requirement.

Kindly follow the below steps to add F12 selection functionality:

  1. Create one “action” with template as “Selection from list” and also standard processing file. Kindly refer to the below screen shot.


  1. Add the Selection field action on field and mention the action name as “XSELLINA”.


  1. XSELLINA action has a SET_LISTS action which gets called when user presses the F12 key.
  2. Here in this action we can write our logic to filter out the records.
  3. NBTEX: Integer
  4. This is the number of lines (therefore the number of possible values for the field that is entered) to be displayed in the window. TEXTE (NBTEX): Char, length 50, sized at 100
  5. This text is associated with each value. In fact, only these texts will be displayed in this selection list.

TIT: Char, length 50, sized at 5: It is the title of the window for the index 0, and the column titles for the indexes 1 to 5.
