Thanks your reply.
Report designer able to generate figure by function followings:
What I mean is....Can I create similar function for my new external data?
You would have to replicate the data sheets (and there are numerous data sheets) to match those that you would get from a Sage 300 database. Same sheet names, same column names, same named ranges, maybe a few other things. You would basically have to spoof the report designer to thinking it is reporting on a Sage 300 database. Even then, it might not work. I'm sure the good people at Sage don't consider this use case when they develop their product. It would be ALOT of work (if it is even possible) and I'm not really sure how you would test to make sure it is giving you the correct information.
In answer to your original question, I would say it might be possible, but I can't see it being a practical solution.
Actually, we have added sub-ledger & external data to different data sheets, which related to customer from CRM.
We wish we able to add similar function as GL.
Anyway, Thanks your information.
