Barcode Label Printing

Dear Experts,

is it possible to print barcodes on labels using the SAPSprint service ?

The labels are defined as Sapscripts and Smartforms.

Thanks a lot for any help.

Regards,

Marc

One more remark: Is it necessary to use an external BARCODE.DLL for barcode generation or can it be done by the label printer as well ?

    Hi,

    Yes it is possible to print bar codes with sapprint service.

    Include the new bar code font in the sapscript. eg. CODE 128.

    Download the 'TBARCODE' software from the internet. Just check on it.

    TBarCode for SAPlpd

    version 5.0.0.21

    by TEC-IT Datenverarbeitung GmbH

    Bar Code Extension (DLL) for SAPlpd

    You will have to install the TBARCODE software on the local machine in the folder where SAPlpd.exe is located. Your barcode printer (Dot matrix or any printer ) must be connected to your local machine.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Pranay

    Hello,

    thanks for the answer.

    One point: SAPSprint service is normally located on a server and is a replacement of the SAPlpd service.

    Do you know if we can avoid this additional software when the printer has a barcode interpreter ?

    I wonder if the SAPSprint service who interprets the barcode in the spool (using the TEC-IT software) can forward it unconverted to the printer if the TEC-IT software is not installed.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Regards,

    Marc

      Hello Pranay,

      I did some research on that SAP note "25344 - Interface SAPSprint (SAPFprint) Barcode DLL (details)" states the following:

      u201EAn external barcode DLL is to be added to the SAPSprint or SAPFprint.u201C

      u201EThe SAPSprint or SAPFprint delegates the task of printing barcodes to an external DLL. SAP does not provide a barcode DLL. The DLL must meet certain requirements so that it can be used.u201C

      u201Eu2026u201C

      u201EThe following list is of suppliers known to us that manufacturer compatible barcode DLL:

      1) e-bizco.com GmbH, Up'n Hoff 1, D-22927 Großhansdorf, Germany

      2) TEC-IT Datenverarbeitung GmbH, Wagnerstr. 6, A-4400 Steyr, Austria

      3) MW6 Technologies, Inc.u201C

      This means to me that if we print barcodes with SAPSprint we must have this barcode.dll even if the printer would be able to interpret it.

      Cheers,

      Marc
