Creating Snippets can be a real time saver for future report writing, as they reduce the need to re-enter expressions you have created before. This is particularly useful if you have created long, detailed or complicated expressions that may be required on other reports etc. that you might go on to write.

When entering an expression into the Expression Editor there is an option available to ‘Save as Snippet’. This opens up the Expression Snippets screen which allows you to save expressions and calculations for use in the future.

The snippets are saved for use in all future reports and layouts etc. not just the report that they are created in.

There is also an Expression Snippets Manager, where you can manage any snippet(s) that you have created.

See this document for a step by step guide to creating and managing snippets: Talking Sage 200 – How to Create and Manage Expression Snippets
