How to Increase Sage ERP X3 memory for a particular User?

By | September 23, 2014

You may come across a situation where you want to increase the memory in sage ERP X3 for a particular user in a particular process. That particular process may need a higher memory for a transaction to process. In Sage ERP X3, it can be done with help of the keyword “maxmem”.

MAXMEM indicates the amount of memory that Screens can use on the client side. So if you have screens with large number of lines, then you may need to set a larger MAXMEM.

MAXMEM: It determines the maximum amount of memory that can be used by the application and modifies this parameter.

Note: MAXMEM is set in kilobytes and read in bytes. So, you’ll notice in the code supplied below that MAXMEM is set to 65536 (64 MB) but while reading, it must be divide by 1024 to get the same value in return. Do not set MAXMEM to bytes or else you will get an error.

Refer below snippet for better understanding.
