Hi:

Can someone show me an example of the Data file structure under the new batch print feature.

Thank you

Basically, Barcode Creator can read a .csv file and print the barcode one by one laid out in a label paper. Lines in a .csv file looks like this:

Code: Select all
1003434323214, 0-20-ABC-2004, Washer
1003434323216, 0-20-EFG-2007, Washer


Fields are separate by comma, and each line is a record. A .csv file can optionally have a header line which defines the names of fields. It must appear at line #1.

Code: Select all
Serial, Model, ProductName


If you have a header line, you can refer a column using its column name. For example, "Serial" is the name of the first field.

Barcode Creator asks you to supply two pieces of information:

  • data file path - this is the path of the .csv file
  • Column - name of field (if header line is present), or cardinal of the field (in the example above, you can also enter 1 for Serial field.
The information above is provided "AS IS", with no warranties, and confers no rights.
