Hello, im not sure if uploading files to the librarian is only for backup purpose and revision control...

 

I want to serialize the information on the label and but every time I print and close the file the information is not updated

Hello cardenasgabriel,

 

If the last serialized value is not being saved after printing the document, please verify the following:

 

1. On BarTender's serialization dialog there is an option called "Update data source after print", please make sure that you've ticked its check-box.

 

2. If you are using Security Center alongside Librarian, please make sure that your user has permission to save the printed documents.

 

Could you also let me know if the serial number is being saved after printing from BarTender instead of from Librarian?

 

Regards.

thanks!, I was looking for that function, but it is under the data entry control, not under serialization, so I could not find it before.

 

one more question, which type of serialization could I use to increment each time I send to the printer a lot of labels.

(ie i would print labels 1-20 on lot 01, then next time I want to print 21-40 would increment to Lot 02), i have tried it but not working

Hello,

 

If I understand correctly you wish to increment a serial number once for every print job, correct?

 

Could you let me know what version of BarTender you are working with?

 

- Please note that on our latest release (v10.1) we greatly improved our serialization feature, and now you'll be able to increment the serial number after certain events; for "every print job" is only one of these events.

 

*I've attached a screenshot of the new serialization dialog for your reference.

 

- On the other hand, if you have an older version of BarTender you'll need to set up the serialization using a VB Script. To do so, cancel the normal serialization, change the data source type to "VB Script", select its type to "Event based" and, in the "OnPrintJobStart" event simply enter the following code:

 

Value = Value +1

 

Regards

Hello Fernando,

I have bartender 10.1, I've changed to every print job, but what it does is to increment this number every label I print, not every print job.

 

example:

first print job

labels 1-20 (select select 20 serial numbers in print dialog)

lot 01

 

second print job

labels 21-35 (select select 15 serial numbers in print dialog)

lot 02

 

 

right now as soon as I do the first print job, lot also increases from 1-20.

 

 

this "number" is data type text, because I need to pad to 2 characters when the Lot is only one digit. (ie lot "9" should be "09")

 

I've tried the Vbscript to event control script however Im not sure if I need to change the variable to global or shared,

You could always set the "Event" for the increment to be "Standard", set the number of serial labels to 1 and the copies per serial number to the amount of identical labels you want to print per print job. In this case, the serial number will only increment per print job.
