Inquiry Tool in Sage 300

In Sage 300, the Inquiry Tool feature allows you to quickly and easily look up information that exists within your Sage 300. The tool will display all the results that fit your search parameters when you select one of the predefined query types. Additionally, you can create custom queries from the existing predefined queries to view the information in the inquiry tool screen and export the same in Excel file format.

The Inquiry tool can be found on the right side of the Sage 300 cloud home screen.
