Label printing through Smartforms

Hi All,

I want to know whether label printing is possible through smatrforms. What all will be details present in a label. According to my knowledge a label is a small piece of paper which will be having details, might be barcode details or some other details. Barcode is possible through Smartform.

So if label printing is not possible through smartforms then what of kind of content present in label is not possible through smartforms?

PS : Please answer specific to my Question, will be rewarded with points.

Thanks & regards,

Shyam.

    Hi Shyam,

    The design for Label-Forms is done in smartforms/sap-scripts in SAP. Now the choice of doing it through smartforms and sap-scripts depends on the kind of printer being used .

    Ideally Labels are printed using Zebra printers and in SAP we design them using Smartforms.

    The height of the Labels can vary depending on the content and the page-format that is being used in the smartform, but the width has to be static.

    In our case, where we used a Zebra Printer, the width had to be limited to 8.5cms.

    You can check the Zebra site for further information on the kind of prints taken out of Zebra Printers.

    http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/about_zebra/alliances/strategic_alliances/sap_new.html

    Hope your question has been answered, for any further details, please post a question which is more specific.

    Hi,

    It is possible to create labels in smartforms. You create them as you would any other form, the main difference being the size of the page, most forms and documents use a standard A4 or letter page, whereas labels tend to be different sizes.

    Hi,

    we can use SMARTFORMS for LABEL printing. One of my colleague has done this for a project in IBM.

    The project is for a medical equipment. He has done the labels for small injection bottles along with bar code. In his project Each lable contain 3cm width and 2cm hight.

    • Hi Kishore,

      i have created page format for label with 3cm height and 7.5 cm width. i have attached page format to my smartforms. but in output it is coming as one for one label.in first page one label second page another label is coming. Is it possible  in SAP to bring one by one label in Single page depending on how many labels u provided in input.

    Hi Shyam,

    Beware of the printer type usually used to printer labels: check note 135894.

    • Hi kabil,

      Thanks for response, i have already done that. i have created page format with max height. because we are going to print labels in printer (roller paper). if it is 6 labels print 6 labels and it should stop. created page format with max height assigned to smartforms , In main window itself devlopd the template . looping that template make me to print as per input. But how to reduce the main window dynamically. based on input . IS it possible. otherwise while in printing Empty Pages wil come. because of max i have set since it is an roller paper label.
