Printing Multiple Copys Of Same Label 追蹤

I am printing label to a Datamax label printer with applicator.

Typically I want to print out the same labels 150 times and every time a box comes by the printer it will apply a label to the box.

 

Normally I can chose my document in bartender or print station, chose 150 and the print job is send to the printer and dissapears from the print queue at the computer.

 

Now I have made a new template and using a sql database to get the data to print on the labels.

If I chose 150 labels it will generate a print job with 150 pages and it will stay in the print queue at the computer until 150 boxes have passed the printer.

 

Is there any explanation why it behaves different when using "static" document instead of database based templates?

If you're specifying a single label and telling the printer to print 150 copies, BarTender sends the label information to the printer as a single print, just telling the printer to continue to print 150 times the same data.  Now when sending data from a database, since the data is different for every label, you're actually outputting 150 labels worth of unique information to the driver.  Since the printer doesn't have enough memory to completely spool the data ahead of time, the job will stay in the spooler until all of the jobs were received by the printer.  You can sometimes mitigate that from inside of BarTender by selecting File>Print then 'Performance' and enabling whichever of the printer optimizations aren't turned on, as well as using printer fonts instead of windows fonts to minimize the size of the printer code.

ok, that makes sense.

 

But is this also the case when I only chose 1 specific record in the database and print the record 150 times?

I would like to revive this topic.

 

Is there a way to use a commander script so that it sends one print to a BTW file, and then inside the BTW file you can have it set a particular template to print a set number of copies based on a field in the data?  I'm not sure if I'm explaining that correctly.  I'm just looking for a way to use commander so that it prints a set number of copies to the printer, and not individual "pages".  We would like to be able to clear the job out of the printer queue on the computer as quickly as possible.
