The printout sometimes looks perfect but for an unknown reason the barcode reader fails to read the barcodes. This happens in Internet Explorer: everything works but the resulting printout is useless.
PLEASE USE WITH THE CHROME BROWSER*, PARTICULARLY WHEN IT COMES TO PRINTING FOR SCANNING WITH A BARCODE READER!!!
Paste in the barcodes and numbers from the excel spreadsheet, copy 1 column by selecting vertically down with the mouse. Then paste into the box here and press the button at the bottom. You can also copy multiple columns**. The barcodes will be in the same order as they were pasted. Barcodes may also be entered directly in with a hard return between each number. If using a barcode reader the hard return happens automatically.
Do you want a label above the barcode (eg room number)?
On the same line as the barcode number, put in a dash ("-") [in the case of pasting from excel a tab mark will be placed between the data from different columns; this will also work, with any number of columns]. The label will be whatever text there is after the dash or first tab mark.
*Or Chrome-based. eg Opera or the Chrome-based Edge.
Firefox may work. Definately NOT IE.
** Multiple columns will be separated by a tab.
if the data is pasted straight into the box.
If the data is multiple columns:
1) the first column needs to be the barcodes
2) all subsequent columns will be put at the top
of the barcode to make a label.
12345 [tab] Room 1
23456 [tab] Room 2
If you are directly typing into the box, enter for a new line, use dash
('-') instead of tab.
