Export user variable information to .xls upon print

Post by label.creation » Sun Jul 08, 2018 11:06 pm

Hi everyone,

Fairly new to using this software. I have an interesting request.

We would like to use a label that has user variable data - The data that the end user will enter we want exported to a spreadsheet.
i.e user enters 4 fields (name, other1, other2, other3) and a barcode is automatically generated (counter).

I can seem to figure out how to export all this data to a spreadsheet when the label is sent to printer.

Any assistance, direction would be appreciated.

In NiceLabel Designer, you can assign an "On Click" action in the Events tab of your print button. The Save Data to File option will allow you to export variable data to a CSV file. Excel can directly open or import a .csv file, but NiceLabel cannot export straight to .xls.
