Components Where-used

By | June 30, 2015

Have you ever come across in circumstances where you want to know the list all the parent products of a component from the BOM file, with the quantity used for the latter. ?

 New Stuff: Deleting a file from a directory

Sage X3 provides a special feature to know the list all the parent products of a component

The lists of where-used can be obtained simultaneously for several BOM’s and displayed on the screen or printed.

The where-used cases are the following:

  • First level where_used case: lists of products that use the selected component directly,
  • Multi-level where-used cases: lists of products that use the selected component directly or indirectly. If a component is itself a component, the parent products using this component will be listed and so on until the last level.
  • Last level where_used case: list of parent products of lowest level (without displaying intermediary levels) that use the selected component.

To successfully bring this functionality follow below steps.

Navigate to: Common Data > BOM’s > Where-used> Components

  1. Enter the Component
  2. Select the BOM Type
  3. Select the BOM Code
  4. Select the Reference Date
  5. Select the Processing mode
  6. Select the issues ( how want to see the result i.e. report or on screen)


  1. The system will display the result.
