    In-case anyone else has come across the same issue i thought i would post the below solution from Bartender Support.


    1. Currently, named data sources using global data fields is the only document level feature that can be shared and updated across multiple BarTender documents. You can find more information about global data fields here:

    Global data fields are embedded named data sources stored in the BarTender System Database. By storing named data sources in a centralized location, they are easily shared across all users, computers, and BarTender documents that are connected to the same BarTender System Database.

    At the moment, you can only use Batch Maker and global data fields to share a single normal data entry prompts and objects between BarTender documents to print multiple BarTender documents at one time.

    2. Can you open your label, go to the data entry form, right-click your control(s) and select Properties. In properties click on "Data Entry" on the left panel, drop the the "Default" option towards the top and select "Use Sample Data", once you do that you will see a check box below it to "Update sample data after print", check that box. Click close and try printing again, it should retain the data from your last typed data.
    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Many thanks and best regards,
