I have a label that wraps around the edge of the a box and I need the identical barcode to print  in two locations.   I tried to just copy the existing barcode but the fields in the barcode are populated by the user  when printing.     When I print only the first barcode get populated

Hi Roger,

Is that mean you need two identical barcodes on the same label?

Using object value, you can use other barcode / text's value as data source.

 

Create 2 barcodes on a label (say Barcode 1 and Barcode 2).

Open Barcode 2's property > Data Sources, select datasource type as [Object Value] and specify Object Name as [Barcode 1].

 

When Barcode1's value has changed (by data entry form etc), Barcode 2's value will be changed too.

Thanks you for the tip however I tried this and it does not accomplish my goal.   My current barcode has several substrings & only a few of them are selected to be visible text.  If I create and new barcode #2 &  select the datasource as barcode # 1 I can choose to use the whole barcode (all substrings combined) or the visible text only.   Obviously I want all the barcode info on barcode #2 but if all the substrings are merged I can no longer choose which sub strings are visible on barcode #2

 

Seems like there would be a simple way to "clone" a barcode.

Object value can only pull either whole barcode value or whole human readable value.

 

Another method is give a share name to each data source of the barcode, then copy and paste the barcode.

Doing that, data sources which has the same name are shared - have the same value and the same transforms,

and that keeps partial human readable visibility setting.
