In Sage X3 , selection screen on a particular field helps users to search easily and select as per the requirement.

In Sage x3, If user want search selection should be there on any field, then it is easy if we are directly using custom data type for the same, but if we have used data type as “A(alphanumeric)”, and we are expecting that selection search screen should be there so that we can easily select the data for the field as per our need. In that case this blog is very helpful for you.
