How to resolve “Too many published fields” web service publication error…?

By | August 31, 2015

While working with the Sage X3 web services you may come across the error “Too many published fields” errors while web service publication.

New Stuff: Know all X3 table details on the go from one screen


This error is due to the dimension value set maximum level on the transaction lines screen.

To overcome the error follow the below steps:

Step 1: Identify the transaction lines screen code for e.g. if its sales order then sales order lines screen is SOH4.

Step 2: Navigate through Development > Processing dictionary > Screens > Screens. Enter the screen code identified in Step 1. Note down the activity code assigned to table block.


Step 3: Go to Activity Codes menu (Development > Data and parameters > Development setup > Activity codes)

Step 4: Select Activity Code identified in step 2 and reduce the Screen dimension to 500

Step 5: Hit “Save” to save the new screen size. It will prompt the system message and click on “Yes” to continue process.


Step 6: Changes to activity code must be followed by Folder validation or dictionary validation. To be quick do the dictionary validation of activity code.

Step 7: Now you can publish the web service successfully without any error.
