Sage line 50 P&L reports

Post by Greengirl » 21 Feb 2012, 14:06


I am using Sage line 50 v on xp pc.

I have 25 depts to run P&L reports for each month and run 25 transactional P&Ls to get the details.

I would like to run 1 report ( which would have 25 pages )

When I tried to run the transactional P&L for depts 1-25 it just gives me summary or total data but does not break it down to each department.

Is there an easy way to modify this report in report designer?

Unfortunately, Sage does not do this, it is beyond the capabilities of the report designer.

You would need to run one report for each department and then join them together.

Alternatively you could create a report in an Excel workbook that uses ODBC to pull the relevant data from Sage to calculate a bunch of P&L accounts for each department.

I have done this sort of thing for clients in the past. If you are not au fait with Excel/ODBC/Sage Data structures, I could do offer and external report writing service for Sage. ... riting.htm
