SSCC Incrementing Number

Post by nick.phillips » Tue May 24, 2011 2:33 pm

Can I use an Access database to house the SSCC number, where the label will read the cell value for that label and printer? When printed the label will then write to that cell and increment it by 1 of course so that the next label or printer may also access the same database ensuring no SSCC number is duplicated?

Yes, you can follow your scenario in NiceLabel software.
You will have to write VB script to write data back to the database. There is a built-in VB script function UpdateAccessRecord that you can use/alter.

However, if you do not need this SSCC value in any other application (but just NiceLabel), you can use NiceLabel's global variable. That can be used on several different labels and can be global counter for SSCC data.

i am using NL Suite Network Edition (5.4.1) and made ONE Label
The data for this label comes out of attached Database-Tables ... selected on a NiceForm.

I select the specific counter-value from the table "Counter"...
and after printing, i want to write back the new Counter-Value... but the built-in SQL-function doesnt work ...

i have no problems writing into a different DB, but not in the "Counter"-Table, where the new value needs to get into ....

how to solve this problem?
--> Problem: my Table and the Column were named "Counter" ... maybe not the best idea ;)
i solved it ..
