How To I Insert A Tab Or Carriage Return S’abonner

I need to create a 2D bar code that contains the item number, serial number and up to 4 or 5 different heat codes. When the bar code is scanned with a Symbol DS6878 into either an Excel file or Access table I need each data field put into a separate cell going from left to right.  Currently I have created a 2D bar code and inserted an embedded data source and indicated a control character between each datasource field but when I scan the label it all goes into one field. Has anyone been able to do this? Is it even possible?

Hello,

 

If I understand correctly you wish to have each data field in your barcode to be sent to a different cell from your database when scanning it. Could you clarify which application is doing so and what special character does this application need to set this data correctly?

 

Note that BarTender's participation only reaches until the barcode is printed, what scans that information and how it manages it depends entirely on the application doing so.

 

Maybe you are not using the correct control character between fields in the barcode?

I've never had luck controlling an application by inserting tabs or carriage returns into a barcode. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but it never seems to send that command to whatever I'm scanning to. I always just have to program the scanner instead, which can be done by referencing the DS6878 manual.

HI.

I had the same problem of inserting Carriage Return in Barcode 128.

I've reached till following:

1. I used VB Script and added the code: "Data1"  & Chr(13)&  "Data2"

2. On Testing, it shows the result as :

       Data1

       Data2

3. When I try to print this on TSC TTP-244 Plus printer, NOTHING is Printed. Only Text below Barcode is printed and the Barcode is blank.

4. When Tried to print only "Data1" "Data2", and tested, is showed Data1"Data2" and even the barcode was printed.

 

Thus, when i add the code, the Bartender shows correct output, but the printer prints blank label.

 

Note: My problem is just for printing the 128 Code with Carriage Return. Reader reads with the carriage return and puts the value as i require.

 

PLEASE HELP!!

HI

My problem is solved.

I'm now able to print the Barcode with Carriage returns and the scanner reads it properly as well.

I did as follows...

 

In Properties of the particular barcode,

    I clicked BarCode Symbology and Size tab, 

    Print Method and

    Select "Barcodes and human readable text controlled by BARTENDER"

 

This way i was able to print the barcode.

 

Thanks anyways,

Regards,
HIREN.
