Hello,

I am using Bartender 2016 R3, Version 11.0.3.3094 (64-bit)

printing to a Konica Minolta 4700P Series PCL6

I am printing labels on A4 sheets, the layout is 5 rows and 2 columns, the top and bottom margins are 4mm and the left and right margins are 0 mm.

The template width is 105 mm and height 57.8 mm, the gap/pitch is 0 mm on both horizontal and vertical.

Printing order is set as starting corner Top-Left and primary direction is horizontal.

The data is supplied by text file to the integration in the following format (I have replaced the UNC path with X’s in this example)

%BTW%/AF="\\XXXXXXX\XXXXXXX\RACKS\bigracks.btw" /PRN="IT-Printer" /D="<Trigger File Name>" /R=3 /P /DD

%END%

When designing the label and using the print preview, I get the expected result.

However, when I send the data to the integration, I only get labels printed down the left hand side.

Best regards

Peter

I believe I am correct in saying that when BarTender sends the print file to the printer what it actually sends is a one label with the data for two labels in it. 

The Integration however deals with each line as a separate label command and so in this case there is no data for the right hand label and so it is blank.

The only way I can think to get round this would be to amend your trigger file so each that there are two records per line and then adjust your label design so that it is 1 row and 5 columns and add the fields 6 to 10 in the data are linked to the right side of the label.
