How to Print an Attachment in Sage ERP X3

By | July 31, 2015

Sage ERP X3 allows you to attach documents (Word documents, Notepad and drawing files, webpage links, PDFs etc) to an object in the software. For example, you can attach an electronic copy of a customer’s purchase order to the sales order. Keeping an electronic record of these types of documents is both efficient and time saving, but inevitably, you’ll need to print those attachments at some point.

We can accomplish this requirement using an X3 variable.

If you typically want to print the attachments associated with an object, there’s a parameter that needs to be set. Once the parameter IMPPCEJOIN is set to “Yes,” you’ll always be prompted to print the attachments after a report is printed from an object.

  1. Proceed to Setup | General Parameters | Parameter Values
  2. Select SUP
  3. Select RPT


4. Right click on RPT and select Detail


5. Change IMPPCEJOIN to “Yes” and save


Now we can print attachments.

Print the Sales Order Acknowledgement by clicking the printer icon on the menu bar.

Since the parameter IMPPCEJOIN has been set to yes, a dialogue box will appear listing the attachment to be printed.

Select the destination and click “OK” to print the attachment. Note that when we refer to printing an attachment, we are not just referring to printing to a printer. You can print to screen as well. You will need to make sure the destination selected has the appropriate software to allow the attachment to be printed. For example, if the attachment is a PDF file, Adobe Acrobat Reader must exist on the workstation where the attachment is sent.
