We setup a record type and the report that print the barcode of that record number and the title on the small labels.
Is it possible to setup/modify in the HP RM8.1 system the report to have another smaller barcode of something else, e.g additional barcode of some additional field ... we are ready to modify the record type to add that additional field. The additional field should be something like the text field so that when we enter the number e.g. CAT999666, that then become the barcode printed on that design report form ...
So basically, we want to have the small print label sticker with a title of the record, barcode of the Record Number and let say additional barcode that is recognised by some other system when scanned....
these 2 barcode talk about the same item in HPE RM.
Trim has always had a "ForeignBarcode" field on objects which you can set.
So the main barcode is not settable, its derived from the Dataset ID and URI.
The foreign barcode if set must be unique.
The great adavantage about the Foreign Barcode field is that it works with barcode scanners, so if you scan the a label and its registered as the foreign barcode of an object then when you upload during physical tracking it will find it.
This has been great when we had had to merge in locations and records from other datasets.
We could not figure it how to display this additional barcode, but we managed to make it work somehow. Basically, we placed the same barcode twice in the same design report layout, but with the option checked for "Print alternative barcode" which gave us the number (Record Number), different barcode and that was it. Customer happy.
