Create unique serialized carton ids at time of creating the print job Follow
I would like to create unique serialised carton ids at time of printing the labels using BT2016 R8 Automation. There are several PCs used for creating the labels and access to a central pool of serial numbers in not possible.
Barcode symbology is GS-128 with application identifier 93.
14 numerical digits in total are available.
Two digits are used for the application identifier and four digits are set aside for the sequencing the serial number.
This leaves eight digits that can be used to create the unique string to identify the particular print job.
Maybe the system time and a machine id or installation id can be extracted when the print job is created and used to create the unique string?
Your help is greatly appreciated.
