Rack labelling program

Hello,

We have a very old version of MfgPRO (7.3k) installed on HPux 10.20 and RFexpress for serial numbers management.

I wonder if there is some standard programs in our version that can print labels (with barcode) to identify racks in stock ?

Thanks.

Laurent.

Hello,

Not on .Net SE 2012. We have our programs to do this ( use zebra printers with zpl language ).

Best regards.

you might want to try docxfactory.com.

docxfactory supports practically every 1d and 2d barcode in the world.

it's free (will be open sourced soon) and is compatible with progress v9 or upwards.

Hello,
The problem is that we use a very old version (7.3k) on hpux.

Thanks

I believe it remains true that most use third party label software. Can be further automated by custom interface module to extract desired data for the label program.
Else, its a manual process. Unless Im incorrect. Consider pros and cons for such.

The mfg/pro version might be different than the progress version (it usually is).

From the progress editor run - message proversion view-as alert-box.


BUT docxfactory is actually written in c/c++ with progress 4gl wrappers

so it could be ported backwards to progress 8 or maybe 7 (i don't remember if v7 supports calling c shared libraries)

and docxfactory can also be used from the command line so you can shell out no matter what version.


For now I've only uploaded Windows and Linux binaries but the project is going to be open sourced so you could compile it on HPUX, I could help you.
