Logging To Sql Express Db Vs. Text Files フォローする

we currently have the 9.2 enterprise version (10 license) running on 5 different PC's at one of our locations. Each PC is set (by label) to log to a text file...here is my question...If I install sql express on the local server at that location, can I point the PC's to write to the sql express database instead of a text file ? I was told I would need to upgrade to 9.4 Enterprise automation, but if my current version has each PC writing across the network to a text file, why couldn't each one be set to write to the db instead ?

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi,3horsesforme:


Are you using SQL express for database data source or as Bartender system database?
From your description, it look like you are using it as Bartender system database for logging printing information.

If you are using SQL express

1)Database data source: You can connect to remote database if you setup connection properly. You might need to write custom SQL statement if you need to write data back into database after processing.

2)Bartender system database: You will need to use Enterprise Automation edition for remote system database usage. You can reference our web site http://www.seagullscientific.com/aspx/bar-code-label-software-features.aspx Features and Edition flow chart comparison for more information

Thanks!

As Susan said, the Automation addition allows any logging to a text file (which includes local and remote files). But you were also told correctly: in order to log to a remote database, you will need the Enterprise Automation edition. With the edition you have, you can log to local databases only. Now, you could set up a database on the same computer where BarTender is installed and log to that database...but it sounds like you want it all on a centralized server.

Hope this helps.
