NL Automation 2 Labels into 1 PDF File

Post by Schwakowiak » Tue May 12, 2020 10:46 am

i have a problem with the Automation Center.
The Target is, to create a PDF File with two different Label Files. The first one is "Overview"-Label (Quantity: 1), followed by a FollowingLabel with a different Quantity (Get it from the Database).

If i create two several PDF-File, it works fine. For Example:

I have tried some several ways to create just one PDF-File - no Success. Nicelabel always overwrites, the Overview-Label :/ I have tried the "Attach to file" Option at the Print_to_file Action in "Open_FollowingLabel".

Later, i want to print one belonging job. The documentation describe the process, by printing to a file and send it to the printer. But when a simple PDF wont work, i guess the whole printing job get worsed.

Maybe you can help ?
Thank you!

This is possible to do, but with automation enterprise as we have a redirect printing to PDF action that allows you to append to the file. We also have a print pdf action that allows you to select PDFS to print and send them directly to the printer, you would need to upgrade your license to LMS enterprise to utilize these features. Please contact or if you are in EMEA
