So I have database file that looks like this

01          A

02          A

03          A

04          B

05          B

06          C

 

And I have three templates 

A.btw

B.btw

C.btw

 

What I want to do is print to pdf using PDFComplete...which will use the correct templates and save to pdf like this

A_01-03.pdf

B_04-05.pdf

B_06.pdf

 

How can I achieve this?

In the page set-up of BarTender use a template selector with the source of the template name coming from the appropriate field.  With you having three separate PDF files in your example you would need to produce three separate print jobs.  Therefore you'd want to configure a query in the DB setup to find the particular set of records you want to generate a PDF for it.  To do this in one action would require automation of some kind to issue multiple print requests for all records in the database/datafile that you want to print PDFs from.

 

What form does the database take?  Is it a fixed DB or something like a CSV text file?  if the latter then the use of the Integrations Platform in BT 2016 would be an ideal solution.
