  • Use formulas to define calculated values, which can come from fields, databases or other formulas.
  • integration Use built-in Microsoft VBScript programming language to create user-defined functions, which can be used in calculations and field values.
  • Input fields and constants can be strung together (concatenated).
Auto–incrementing fields
  • Auto-incrementing or decrementing fields can be numeric, alphanumeric, alphabetic, hexadecimal or user-defined sequence.
  • Auto-incrementing field values can be saved locally, shared with other labels, or reset each time label is printed.
  • Auto-incrementing field values can be stored in database records used for printing.
  • Auto-incrementing fields take advantage of printer capabilities to increase print speed.
Logging
