Add a barcode to a Label Template

If you need to add a barcode line to your template, this technote will show you how. The 5160.lbx label template is a template you won't want to add a barcode to, as the label isn't wide enough to hold a barcode.

  1. From the Print Settings window, click on the Edit Template button.
  2. Click on the ab tool in the Toolbar to the left of the label template. Your cursor will turn into a crosshair.
  3. Position the crosshair in the area where you want to insert the field. Click and drag to draw the box.
  4. When the mouse is released, the Report Expression Window will appear.
  5. Type in the following expression:
  6. azbarcode
  7. Click OK.
  8. Close the label template and click Yes to save the changes. Before printing, make sure the Print Barcode box is checked.

I am especially motivated to take time to draw attention to Vince. In two instances, we potentially faced loss of product – significant loss, but thanks to everyone’s efforts, most notably Vince’s, we ended up with minor re-work and zero loss of stock. He’s patient and thorough, knowledgeable and resourceful. And he’s patient – A Big Plus when dealing with me. Long story short, the guy was able to not only produce a solution, but to prove to me the veracity of it. I hung up the phone saving thousands of dollars in catalog stock, not lost but salvaged, and my department had to spend just a wee bit of time on job re-work (which I was happy to do, all things considered). But I also hung up with a peculiar urge to write about Vince, incongruent as that may be since I rarely am moved to write letters of this sort. So… In a time of crisis, Vince was a terrific asset and ally. If I were his boss, I’d attempt a merit raise authorization, he was that exceptional.
