How to print a field once which is repeating in Sage X3 report

By | July 30, 2021

In Sage X3, developer has freedom to develop their own reports in Crystal reports as per their client requirement. So we have also developed one of the report in India pack report called as Vendor transaction/Ledger report. This report display all the vendor transactions for selected parameter range. In this report, there is section where opening balance needs to be shown then vendor transactions and then closing balance. Here the opening balance section needs to be printed only once rather than printing for each record. This can be achieved easily by using “suppress if duplicated” option in crystal report, if our report is in PDF format, but in our case report prints in an excel so we come up with another solution.

To handle this, follow the below steps:

Step 1 :
Open report in crystal report
Right click on opening balance field -> format field -> click on against “Suppress“ label X-2

New Stuff: Restrict Purchase Order based on Open SO amount

format field
format field

Step 2 :
Write the condition given below on the formula workshop screen as shown in the below screenshot
{FIELD}=previous({FIELD })


Step 3 :
Save this report, deploy the RPT file on respective folder location and print from Sage X3 screen


The above screenshot is output of the Report after applying the above mentioned changes in crystal report. Now, we can see here in opening balance column values is getting printed in only first row for the same vendor and rest of the rows are blank.

In this way, we can suppress the values if any field has same value repeating again and again.
