Questions on printing labels

Hi

Please help me with the two questions.

Is there a sizing guide available for Label management print jobs based on SAPS?

Can SAP support 3D barcodes and where do I get the fonts for same?

Thanks

    1. Is there a sizing guide available for Label management print jobs based on SAPS?

    You can configure jobs to process “print request” (available from EHP7, EHP6 SP08, EHP5 SP11). You need to execute this report “RCCGLR_SUBMIT_PRQ_JOBS” to schedule the relevant jobs.

    Apart from that, if you use report information system to generate labels in Generation server, refer this SAP Note – 1094307.

    Keep in mind the generation of reports is influenced by:

    • Size of report
    • Complexity of report
    • Amount of data needed for the report
    • Amount and size of additional graphics and documents.

    Depending on that you can schedule the timing for your jobs and configure WWI Generation servers.

    But sizing guide is not available for print jobs. If you are interested in Sizing of Generation server, then, yes. Refer the “Performance / High Availability / Sizing in WWI Set up guide or SAP Note – 1061242.

    2. Can SAP support 3D barcodes and where do I get the fonts for same?

    3D Bar code Support:

    Yes, SAP Supports 3D barcode. SAP Provides Barcode interface as starting with EHP 7, EHP6 SP08, EHP 5 SP11 as a SAP standard. But you need a third party barcode library and alongside you need higher WWI Generation server version (starting with WWI SP 31. Now SP 32 is available)

    Font ?

    WWI Supports bar code printing in 2 ways,

    1. Using Bar code font: Using Bar code font method you can print only 1 D Barcode or linear barcode. For 3D barcode you need to go for the option ii.
    2. Using Bar code interface. –

    a. Genefix (you may start a separate discussion about this)

    b. SAP std Barcode interface (EHP 7, EHP 6 SP08, EHP 5 SP11). It needs third party barcode library. Refer SAP Note – 25344, 14561, 1293379.
