How to use Columns in Sage ERP X3

By | February 28, 2015

You may come across a situation where you would like to update only few fields from the table. So we are using “Columns” keyword in Sage X3 to accomplish desired requirement.

New stuff: How to find the name of the window

Description: The “Columns” instruction is only taken into account by the For loop and Rewrite instructions. The Read and Write instructions still manage class [F] as a whole.

Syntax1:  Columns class [(field [, field])]

Syntax2: Columnsclass With Mask (mask [, mask])]

Parameter details:

  • Class:   Abbreviation of an open file
  • Field:   Name of a field from the table.
  • Mask:   Abbreviation of an open mask

Example: Here are the details of three fields i.e. BPRNUM, BPRNAM and BPAADD from table (BPARTNER).

In this screen shot, we have updated the field (BPRNAM ) to ’Emerald city bikes’ where BPRNUM=’P21’.

Kindly refer to the below snippet of code for better understanding.1
