"coupled" labels (printing 2 different labels with 1 print job). Follow
Hi! We have several devices that all use (more or less) the same label. For example: Some safety symbols are not necessary for one device while they are for others. Of course there is also a difference in reference number & lot number.
We've made a single database which shows which reference numbers need which symbols and a single bartender template which contains all possible symbols and at print time determines which symbols are necessary using the user-filled in reference number.
This works brilliantly.
But we want to go a step further. The devices also have box labels (which is a different size & hence needs a different template). We did the same trick here and it still works.
But we were wondering if it's possible to couple these two templates such that when only 1 reference number is entered manually both templates are printed (so we get two labels, a box label and a unit label).
This removes the possibility of user error where a unit label is printed with one reference number and a box label is printed with an other one.
We were able to couple the labels using global variables, but i'm not aware of a method of sharing search queries in the database.
