Qr Code W/ Embedded Url And Unique Id Seguir

Sorry if I may confuse anyone with my post, but I need help! I have to create a QR code that will be printed onto 2500 magnets. Each QR code needs to be embedded with the same URL, but each one should have its own Unique ID. How do I go about this so that both the URL and Unique id are embedded into the QR code? Also, I would like to have it where the Unique ID is visible so that the user knows which QR code was scanned from the group of 2500 QR codes.

 

I've found the Serialization option, but I'm still unsure as to how to use it.

Is there a list of the UID's, or are you just going to be generating them on the fly?

It should be a list of UID starting at 1 and ending with the last magnet being 500 (the number of magnets just got changed today).

I too, would like to know how to serialize only one item in a QR code.  Has this issue found a solution?

If you wish to define a fixed value on your QR Code and then a variable serialized one, you only need to divide the information in different data sources inside the barcode object.

 

One data source (or sub string as it used to be called on older BarTender versions) will contain the UID and the other data source the actual serialized value.

 

Furthermore, if you wish to "make visible" the serialized value on each printed label, you could share the value of the serialized data source with a text object somewhere on your document, so they get updated at the same time.

 

*You can share a value between two data sources by naming one of them and using that name on a second data source (effectively they will both become the same data source used in two different objects).

 

**You can also source the value of a named data source through VB Script.

 

Cheers.

Thank you, Fernando.  That was the solution I arrived at after taking some more time to poke around in the menus.  It works like a charm!
