In Sage 50 Accounts, it is possible to reduce the time spent running reports, for example at month or year end, by setting up batch reporting.

This will allow you to run multiple reports at once – as a set of reports can be grouped to run together.

  1. On the menu bar click Tools, then click Batch Reporting.

  2. Click New and enter a name for your batch report.

  3. In Description enter a description.

  4. In the Available Reports pane, browse to and double-click the required reports.

  5. If required, to reorder the reports in the Selected Reports pane, select the report then click Move Up or Move Down.

  6. Click Save As, then enter a file name for the batch report, then click Save

How do I run a batch report?

  1. On the menu bar click Tools, click Batch Reporting.

  2. Click the Favourites or Batch reports folder as required.

  3. Click the required batch report.

  4. Click Preview, enter all required criteria then click OK.

  5. To view each report, click the relevant tab across the top of the Preview window.

  6. Select whether to complete the print, file, or email option for the current tab, or the entire report by clicking the drop-down next to the relevant option.
