Jim. I believe you received a solution to this through our support group, but we can post here for the benefit of the community. The printer drivers (NiceDrivers) used with NiceWatch were set in the properties to print directly to the printer instead of spooling the print jobs. When a printer would ...

The only way would be if your printer driver doubled as a fax driver. Microsoft may even have a fax driver.

Similar to this is creating a PDF from NiceLabel. If you have Adobe installed on your PC, you simply slect the Adobe PDF driver and the label is output as a PDF.

A large majority of the NiceLabel user base in the U.S. (unit requirements are different in other parts of the world) are in industrial environments that work in tenths, hundreths or thousandths of an inch for compli...

The NiceLabel API does not allow you to add a barcode object to your label design. If you have a scenario that requires certain barcodes to print based on the data on the label, then there are ways to handle this in the design such as stacking barcodes with different variables. The barocdes with no ...

NiceLabel SE (Starter Edition) is provided at no charge by various printer manufacturers. These typically only support the printers of the manufacturer you received the software from. Our suggestion is to go back to the manufacturer and ask them for v4 of the SE product that supports their printers.

You should be able to do this in NiceWatch. As long as the Excel macro is creating the final CSV file in a standard format, you can create a filter in NiceWatch that will parse, map and print the data. As a topper, you can write the parsed data to an Access database by using the VB script functions ...

Have you tried using the native connection for Excel in NiceForm instead of using ODBC? The Native connection used OLE DB and is more reliable than ODBC.

Which edition of NiceLabel are you using? (SE, Express, Pro,...)? In Pro, you can simply right click on an object and move the object priority in the Arrange menu option. For Express or SE, the priority is in the order the objects are placed. A simple test here in Express v5 confirmed this.

Can you give us information about the application you are using the driver with? Is it a NiceLabel version or another 3rd party application? Are you printing locally or through a shared environment like Terminal Services or Citrix?
