Printing Bar Codes from FileMaker
I'm looking for any input on this topic. At the moment I have a Brother P-Touch label maker, and with the P-Touch editor software I can create a barcode and have the label maker print it out. I'm trying to automate this process from FileMaker using a field that contains a 7 digit number.
I need some sort of interface that will accept my number and create and print the barcode. If there is a solution that requires buying an additional label printer and/or software set I'm open to that, I just want it to work and work reliably. I would think it could be fairly simple with the right setup since it's just a simple number being transferred.
Thanks for any input!
There is more than one type of barcode. They are for the most part just fonts so you may be able to just install a barcode font on your computer and configure FileMaker to use it. You would enter your barcdoe value into a text field and then the same field on a labels layout can be formatted to use the barcode font in order to print out your bar code.
