Sage 100

Almost every report in Sage100 is now Crystal Reports based. Between reports and look ups it is becoming easier to export data directly into Excel. Any Crystal report can be exported to Excel. To export data from a Crystal Report directly to Excel, select a report and PREVIEW it. Once open click the first icon on the top left.

The design of the preview may look different depending on the version that is installed on your computer. Here’s another example of the report preview. On this version click the envelope icon.

Using the drop‐down listing, select Excel.

You can then choose to where you want the file exported. If you want to easily edit immediately after exporting, select Application (presuming you have Microsoft Excel installed on the machine from where you are exporting the report.)

You’ll then be prompted to select some options related to exporting the data.

Once you’ve selected your options and click OK, Excel will open and the data from the report will be available to be edited or reformatted. Note, sometimes the formatting from Crystal Reports is not exact when translating to Excel. You might encounter some blank lines that you might not normally expect. This is due to the translation between Crystal and Excel.

Option 1

  • You can use the icon for exporting as a shortcut.

Option 2

  • The first thing is to click on the list menu. Once you do that, you should select the Export option and then the Spreadsheet option. This option works when you are in the full screen mode where the SAP screen is displaying returned data lists.
  • If you have more than one format available with regard to the spreadsheets, then you will see the Select Spreadsheet option open up.
  • Since there are many ways of saving the spreadsheets, you should specify the format, which you prefer on the dialogue box list.
  • Once you select your preferred format, you need to confirm the new settings.
  • You will have to state the name and path of the file you are dealing with then save the changes.
  • At times, you will also be required to make the relevant settings. The program linked to the selected extension on the file name will then open the file you generate after you have completed the exporting process.
 Option 3
  • You can make use of the right clicking option to expert data from SAP to Excel.
  • Once you have determined the data that you want to export, you need to place your cursor within that data. It does not matter where the cursor lies as long as it is within that data displayed on the screen.
  • You should right click using your mouse, after which you will have access to a drop-down menu. You can then select the spreadsheet option and export that SAP data to Excel.
  • Setting Excel as the Default Option
  • If you are not interested in having to follow the lengthy processes when exporting SAP data to Excel, then there are things that you can do to make the process much easier on you. Some of them are outlined below.
  • In the case of Exporting Data I, you can still use the List>Expert> Spreadsheet option. However, when the Select Spreadsheet dialogue box comes up, you should select the Always use Selected Format option. Once you confirm the settings, you can proceed as usual. Anytime you expert SAP data after that, it will be exported to the preferred settings.
