Embed Changing data into barcode Follow

Hey, 

I am having issue with a barcode displaying a value displayed in a text field after I paste the code in to D365 F&O. 

I am currently creating a barcode on a label that can take the value that is displayed on a text field and embed that into the barcode. this value that will get displayed is not a static field it changes based on the item that is received in. I need for a way to have the barcode look at the value in the text field and embed that in it before it prints the label. 

 Also is there a way to better connect to D365 F&O then pasting the code for the label in the dynamics System.

If you link the text filed and barcode together by make one a Named Data Source and then linking the other field to that name then that will share the data between them. 

You use the Change Data Source Name button to access this feature.

 

Just to get this correct, you then need to take the value of that field and add in to a field in Dynamics? If that is the case as you have created a barcode with the number, connect up a USB barcode scanner to your PC and just scan the barcode as it would be quicker than copying and pasting it.

So I have tried that already, in the text field I need to put in a code that pulls data from dynamics 365 F&O into the label IE: item number, so in order to pull that in the text field i put the code $itemid$ code and link the barcode to it. But when I go a paste the code in dynamics and print the label the text field and the human readable part of the barcode changes to the item number correctly but the embedded data in the barcode still shows $itemid$ instead of the actual item number. 

 

 

So i can use the barcode I created in bartender, i have to cop the code and paste it in D365. Because the label gets routed from a Dynamics 365 warehousing app on a mobile scan gun so D365 is basically the middle man between the the data received on the warehousing app and then transferring that to the label before printing.

BarTender will encode the data fully when you perform the print action, are you actually printing the label?
