Repeated Data Entry フォローする
Apologies if this has been asked before but I had no success finding it.
I am using BarTender to replace a legacy labelling system that has a feature I am yet to work out how to mimic in BarTender without using a database or using the SDK.
The label media has 6 labels per row. The requirement is to provide a data entry form where it continues to prompt for values to be printed on a label (with optional copied ideally) until all entries have been entered. At this point the printing starts across the labels. So that if I asked for 5 single labels with different values only one row of label media would be used.
I have achieved this by entering the data into an Excel spreadsheet and linking it to the template but my user would prefer it all being done via the data entry screen rather than having to use 2 different applications to achieve what he can now in one.
I've found another, albeit contrived, way of doing it via a data entry form. I have added a serial number field on the label and hidden it so it's never printed. On the data entry form I now have three fields ...
1) Number of serial numbers required (Label reads number of items to enter)
2) Number of copies per item
3) Data Item
1 & 2 are set to be entered once per print job and 3 once per serial number.
This seems to work fine but seems a bit contrived way of doing it. I also have to train some people to create their own labels using this mechanism so looking for something that may be a bit easier/intuitive.
Any help appreciated.
