|Creating Barcode Data Formulas|
Data Formula Section of the Dialog
This is where you can enter the formulas that are used to compose barcode data for every row (record) from the data source. This is the data that will be encoded into the barcodes.
You can have up to 20 data parts. To edit any data part, first select the Type of the data part from the drop down list, then choose/enter a value to the right as shown. The results of these 20 lines are stuck together end-to-end and used as data for each OnMerge Barcode.
NB You can have up to 20 data parts, but only 6 of them are visible in the dialog at one time; you use the scroll control on the right to access the other 14.
Each barcode's data can be composed from up to 20 pieces of text. Each piece can be manually entered, or can be "looked up" for each row from the data source. The gray area to the left is a preview of that data part for the current row shown in the upper section of this dialog.
To edit any data part, first select the Type of the Data Part (1) from the drop down list, then choose/enter a value in (2) as shown. The changes that you make will be shown immediately in the previews shown in (3) and (4) above.
NB If your database contains legacy-formatted data (start/stop characters, checksums, etc.) please see about the Legacy Data Conversion option.
NB If you have GTIN-14 (international standard 14-digit) product numbers in your database, you can use them to generate UPC (11 digit) or EAN (12 digit) barcodes. For those barcode types, OnMerge will ignore excess leading 0's if 14 digits are input.
NB See about Data Escaping if you have binary data.
