Weekly Reset Of Serial Numbers Follow

Hi,

We have labels with serial numbers with the following format: XYYZZZZ, where

X = a single letter describing the year (from a global variable)

YY = Week number (a time variable with the pattern WWWW)

ZZZZ = a serialized number starting at 0001 and increased by 1 for each printed label. This is set to reset each week.

 

The problem here is that YY is set (correctly) each monday, but ZZZZ is reset every sunday. How do I get ZZZZ to reset on mondays?

Give share name to YY, Then in ZZZZ's Reset condition, enable [Data changes] and Data Item to [Named data source: YY].

By that, ZZZZ will reset on YY change.

Just one more problem: the Data Changes box is greyed out ...

Make sure you have set share name to the datasource (YY) from small button at the right of [Name:] box.

See attached sample (For BarTender 10.1)

Can this be done without the Data Entry Form?  I am using active-x to print the label through an automated process and do not want the user to click on print every time.

Yes, serial number reset condition works without data entry form. Note that this feature only available from BarTender 10.1.
