I have BarTender 10.1 and I would like to know if it can be set up to print automatically after scanning a barcode label into the label. I want to set it up so that that the user doesn't have to press print every time.

Then maybe configure your barcode scanner so that enter is a suffix character.  This is a standard feature on most barcode scanners.

I also want to do the same thing. Please allow me to elaborate more on my question.

 

I'm using the following:

Excel as a DB. 

Barcode Scanner

PC laptop.

Intermec Label Printer

 

For events I'd like to scan ever ID access card. I can do that and the data gets transfer to the excel document just fine. 

Then after I scan someone's ID, I need to be able to produce instantly a label with their name and ID number (scanned into the Excel)

 

How can I accomplished that? I want to print Instantly, right after I scanned an ID. Can I set up Bartender so it prints as soon as data is enter into the excel sheet?

You can do that e.g. with the Enterprise Automation version of BarTender and a smal .net app. The scanner sends the barcode with a trigger (Enter) to a c# app based on the Taskmaster example from the .net lib.
