Live Data Follow
In the past I have used Bartender to print from an excel sheet. I had data moving in when the operator finished a batch. I was using Commander also to trigger on a data change. The problem was Bartender kept looking at the same excel sheet and printed the old data. I had to have a programmer assist me in writing code to open and close excel to get the new data each time. We got it working but had to write a bit of code to do it. I am moving data in 3 fields of numbers from a plc every time a batch is complete. The operator presses the print button, the data moves to excel, then commander triggers the print. I am wondering if there is a better way of doing this using a different data source which could make it clean and simple.
