Printing Label "sets" Using Different Page Layout And Quantities S’abonner

Hello.

I am having a problem that I am trying to solve. Any guidance would be appreciated. I am a newbie to bartender, and am currently running bartender 10.1, the automation edition, on windows 8.1, using Oracle databases.

 

I have 2  related templates, both printed to a 4 by 6 inch label. 

label "A"  fits 1 template across the page.

label "B"  fits 4 templates across the page, 1 row by 4 columns. (The users cut this label up into 4 smaller labels).

 

I want the process to prompt me for a PURCHASE ORDER

The program will then go into a database table and find all records for that PURCHASE ORDER, with each line returned  representing a PURCHASE ORDER LINE ITEM.

The user then needs to select which PURCHASE ORDER LINE ITEM(S) labels will be printed for.

The user would then like to specify the number of label "A" labels to print. This number of  "A" labels will be printed for each record.

Once the  "A" labels are printed for a given record, the user would then like the "B" labels printed for the record. The quantity of "B" labels to print for a given record is derived by a database field "QUANTITY" found in that record. 

 

Currently I have these being generated using 2 different .btw files, and the user is "marrying up" the "A" labels to their corresponding "B" labels, but they would like them to print out in this order to eliminate this manual process.

 

Thanks.

As far as I know, you would need to custom build an application in order to do something like this.

Thanks Slickson.

Can you tell me a bit more about how to custom build this application? I have done a bit of poking around the vbscript stuff within bartender, and have perused the tool Batch Maker, thinking maybe I could make a batch file out of the set of templates. Just not sure where to get started doing this. Perhaps some high level guidance so I start attempting to go down the right path?

Hmm. Yeah you may be able to get rid of SOME of the manual steps by using Batchmaker, or at least put everything closer together.

 

Slickson is referring to using the .NET or ActiveX integration options to write your own GUI for this type of work...
