Hi,

i'd like to use dos command to print labels (starting from an excel file).

 

Question is: is professional version ok for this purpose?

 

As we alrady have an enterprise 8.01 but we need on a stand alone pc we are thinking about this.

 

Thanks to all who'll answer.

Yes the Professional edition supports command lines, but not all command line options are supported.  The most notable being the selection of printer and/or data file which are Automation edition or above features.  Check the BarTender command line summary Help topic for a full rundown of options available.

C:\Programmi\Seagull\BarTender\8.0\bartend.exe /AF=C:\FormatBT\Y10308.btw /C=640 /P /S /CLOSE /MIN C:\Programmi\Seagull\BarTender\8.0\bartend.exe /AF=C:\FormatBT\y10312i.btw /S=4 /P /S /CLOSE /MIN

Did you check the BarTender Help system as recommended?

 

Have you tried running the commands?

Yes i tried the command with the entreprise version 8.01 we have. and they runs very well.

the fact is that i haven't yet the Professional version so i cannot try on it.

And the question is to understand if, as we have this need, we can buy it or not.

 

in the help system of my bartender version i did not find any referring point to the professional version.

 

So the question if they run or not on Professional system is to understand if we can buy it or not.

 

Thanks

In the help document it identifies only those options that require the Enterprise edition or higher.  All others are okay for all editions.  The options you use are fine for the Professional edition.

Hmmm, in newer versions of BarTender it looks like we've now disabled this completely for non-Automation editions.  This means that the use of ANY command line will indeed require the Automation edition or above.  Sorry for the confusion.
