Bryce 24k and 30k - helpful hints - barcode printing

Post by addressman1 » Wed Dec 12, 2007 3:59 pm

Have barcode bars printed too heavy for you on some stocks?
Have you used the generic text driver to make life better?

Here is a great way to avoid using the true type barcode font and still have the option for any true type font for your address data.

1) Select the Bryce print driver

2) In control panel settings on your printer set barcode location to OFF

3) In your accuzip label template creat a field where you want to print the delivery point barcode.
use the expression below
"~~"+substr(barcode,2,12)

NOTE: Set the font for the above field box to (COURIER 12 POINT)
EITHER THE PRINTER FONT OR TRUE TYPE COURIER
IF YOU DONT SET IT TO COURIER THE PRINTER GETS CONFUSED!!!! :?

The rest of your label info can be the font of your choice.

To print only a full delivery point rather then a 5 digit barcode for those addresses that did not validate in the "print when box" check - "print when true and enter:
len(allt(barcode))>10

The tilde characters trigger the printer to create the postnet barcode from the info sent from the barcode field in your presort. The barcode prints where the field box is located in the template.

If the bars are too thick or thin - in the barcode menu on the printer the last option is to set bar width. Experiment - I normally run the bar width at 7 or 8 - and have not had a MERLIN probelm in years

Have fun
Mike :D
