Sage ERP X3 Tips: Adjusting ENDDAT and Folder Memory Settings

By: | Category: ERP

In this post we review tips on how to safely work around two system warning messages you may encounter while working in Sage ERP X3. They involve the ENDDAT (End Date) and Folder Memory settings.

Correct The ENDDAT Warning When Launching Sage ERP X3

When launching Sage ERP X3, you may receive the message: Warning: the logical connection date is not the same as the date required for the connection—ENDDAT parameter is not authorized for connections with a logical date greater than XX/XX/XXXX. This warning occurs when the Folder ENDDAT is set to a date earlier than the server’s system date or the date entered in the Connection screen. It occurs frequently at year end.

To prevent the warning from displaying, here is how you can change the ENDDAT parameter on the folder or folders where this warning is occurring.

  1. Open Parameters/General Parameters/ Parameter Values.
  2. Double-click on the SUP (Supervisor) module in the Folder.
  3. To display the SUP module parameters, click on the folder receiving the warning.
  4. Highlight the DEF (Default Values) row.
  5. Right-click and select the Detail.
  6. Change the ENDDAT (End Date) parameter to a value larger than the date displayed in the warning.

Note: To prevent receiving this message, use a future date, such as 12/31/2099.
Click the OK and then the Save button.

Adjusting Folder Memory Setting To Avoid Memory Errors

In Sage ERP X3 Versions 5 and 6, when you attempt to process a task such as executing the Accounting Interface (FUNSTKACC), posting a purchase order or sales invoice, you may receive the following or a similar message: No more memory available@X3.CPTAUTO(xxx):

When a process executes, multiple screens and tables are opened in the Sage ERP X3 engine in order to process the task. Sometimes, a session of Sage ERP X3 does not have enough memory allocated to complete the task. To bypass this error message, allocate more memory to a session by adjusting the folder memory setting as follows:

  1. Go to Parameters/General Parameters/ Folders.
  2. Select the folder where you are receiving the error.
  3. Go to the Miscellaneous tab. Adjust the Engine process memory (MAXMEM) value.
  4. Make only minor adjustments to this value—in other words, adjust by five at a time.
  5. For more information on this message, the MAXMEM value, or memory in general refer to online help.
  6. Save the record. DO NOT VALIDATE. Exit out of Sage ERP X3.
  7. Start a new session of Sage ERP X3 for that folder in order for the changes to take effect.
