vrf Barcode Label Printing

Question asked by VRFuser on Sep 22, 2008

Amrik,

 

We been using Free 3 of 9 Code to produce our Barcode Labels to identify our equipment and print to a Brother PT-9500PC labeller, using a spreadsheet.

As Kenneth pointed out you do need to have an * at the beginning and end of the text for Barcode Readers to be able to read it. 

 

For example, *A12345*.

 

However, having said that, our Barcode reader supplier advised us not to use 3 of 9, because it has no error checking, and can occasionally will read the wrong characters.  Since he pointed this out, we have noticed it occurring on several occasions.  All well and good, if it picks a non-existent barcode, but can cause real problems if reads a Barcode that already exists in your database.

 

Cheers,

Gary

Hi All

 

Has any one recommendations of label printing software with barcode ability

(code 39) and can be controlled from vee to print a serialised label.

 

I currently use bartender but I am looking for a more cost effective

solution if anyone has one out there.

 

Cheers
