How to change Company Screen Colours

One of the newer features in Sage 300 ERP is the ability to color code company databases. In a previous newsletter, we briefly introduced this new functionality and discussed WHY you would colour code (i.e. differentiate screens when multiple companies are open at the same time). In this article, we’ll show you HOW to colour code companies – step by step.

1. Access Database Setup

Before getting started, note that this functionality is only available in Sage 300 ERP 2012, Product Update 1 or above.

As an Admin user in Sage 300 ERP, select Database Setup and then enter the password.

2. Edit Company Colours

You’ll now see that there is a Color column next to the Database ID column. Also note that you have the option to Assign Colors Automatically, as well as Clear All Colors.

Click on the company that you wish to color-code and then select Edit.

Assign company colours 1

Under Company Color click on Select Color to chose your desired shade. Click Ok.

assign company colour 2

Note: If you want the default or natural Windows look then select ‘No Color.’ 

3. View Company

Now just open up one of your color-coded companies in Sage 300 ERP and you’ll notice that the Windows title bar and border have been changed to your choice of color. Even the preview windows that appear when you hover over the task bar icons have been color-coded.
