How to pass dynamic data in Crystal reports from Sage X3

By | August 31, 2014

While working on a crystal report we come across the situation where we want to process data from several tables before running the report.  In this situation X3 provide specific coding feature where we can write code to pull data from several tables and screens and we can pass to Crystal report before running. We can also enforce business rules while processing these data sets.

Using this feature, you free up lot of links that you had to use in Crystal report. This way, you are going to use more than one table to pull data, pass only final processed table to Crystal report which will reduce complexity and load on the Crystal report. In certain scenarios, this will also improve performance.

// Here we can write our complex code or call parameterized, non-parameterized function to pull data.


While working with X3 you can avoid some limitation of Crystal report also.

Like –

  • The maximum size of an array is 1000 elements in Crystal report.
  • The maximum number of loop condition in Crystal report
