Using Printer In-Built Increment For Serialization, How? Follow
Hi guys, I'm new here so treat me gently. Any help gratefully received.
We manufacture print/apply systems using Datamax A class Mk2 print engines. We have our own old, obsolete VB software where we use the internal increment field command. This means we can send down one label format with a print quantity of 9999. This spools one label design so is very quick, then we can disconnect from the printer and it will get on with the job of printing (and incrementing) each label on its own.
Keeping our software up to date with the latest Windows is now beyond us so we are replacing it with Bartender these days. My problem is a label with serialization field results in 9999 serialized labels ending up in the network print queue, each label then being formatted and printed individually. I need to use of the printers internal increment.
I can't get my head round how to use the printer internal increment in Bartender. I've got slightly lost going down cache templates in the printer, active X programs (what they?) and it all looking horribly complex. Is there a simple way to achieve this?
Ah, I can get it working with a text serial number field but if I have the serial number as part of a GS1-128 barcode Bartender sends down each individual label design. Typically, my customer wants the serial number in a barcode.
