If it is anything like Sage Mas90, you just save the report into the default report directory the app is running out of (As the report lookup will not find it otherwise). Go into Report Maintenance/Report Import, pick the "tree" within the desired module and report group, enter a user defined name for the menu, point to your created report.

Adding A Third-Party option to CS/3/Enterprise


1.     Add an option
System Manager/Configure User Interface/Options
     Type in an option name starting with :gui:
e.g. ?:gui:excel_sales? (without the quotes) where excel_sales is the key for SQL to address
     Description is what you want to appear on the menu
     e.g. ?Sales History? (without quotes)

2.     Add the option to a menu
System Manager/Configure User Interface/Menus
     As per normal System Administrator function add the option to a menu

3.     Add entry to TCR database
Start/Programs/Microsoft SQL Server 7.0/Enterprise Manager
     Open TCR Tables within your company database
     Left click then right click on TcrGB and select the option Return all rows
     At the bottom of the entries click in the left hand column (TcrKey)
     In this column repeat the entry you typed into the option above
     e.g. ?:gui:excel_sales? (once again without the quotes)
     Value column equals the address of the file you are calling
     e.g. c:\windows\excel\sales.xls ? avoid spaces and if long enclose in quotes
     TCRIndirect set to N
     TCRDescription equals Description you used for option above
     e.g. ?Sales History? (without quotes)
          Type equals AC
          Close TCR and Enterprise Manager

4.     Don?t forget to create the file you want the system to call

This question was LOCKED with a PROPOSED ANSWER and awaits your decision today.  Once a question is LOCKED with a Proposed Answer, few new experts will step in to help on that question, since the assumption is, you've been helped.  If the Proposed Answer helped you, please accept it and award that expert.  If it did not help you, please reject it and add comments as to status and what else is needed.
 
If you wish to award multiple experts, just comment here with detail, I'll respond as soon as possible.  As it stands today, you asked the question, got help and not one expert was awarded for the contribution(s) made.  Your response is needed.  I'll monitor through month end, and if you've not returned to complete this, we'll need to decide.  Expert input is welcome (as always) to determine the outcome here if the Asker does not respond.
 
Your response in finalizing this (and ALL) your question(s) is appreciated.

I've seen this solution from sage defore but for some reason this does not work with line 200.

But as I've move on to writing a whole new frontend for line 200, I'm happy to give you the points for your time

Hi, Allen.

Thank you for returning and letting us know the alternate route you've chosen to take in regards to this question you posted.

I have refunded these 300 points to you, since I did not provide you any technical guidance, merely helped to bring this old, open question back to the foreground for resolution.  If an expert or experts here helped you in any way and you would like to award them any points for this, you may merely wish to post a new question in this topic area and entitle it -->  Points for __expertname__ and in the comment field cut/paste the link to this question so they know what it regards.

Again, thank you.
