Import Label Data from Almost Any Database or Spreadsheet with
Seagull BarTender Software
Read from Most Databases and
Spreadsheets with Seagull BarTender
For some labeling projects, you can just type the necessary label
data right into Seagull BarTender. Often, however, you need to
access data created by other programs and stored on different
computers. Multiple "related" data files may even be distributed
across networked computers. Full support for Microsoft ODBC (Open
Database Connectivity) lets Seagull BarTender read label data from
literally dozens of industry-standard and proprietary data formats.
Read label data from numerous sources.
Access Data from Windows and
Many available ODBC and OLE-DEB drivers support non-Windows data
platforms, including LINUX, AS/400, Oracle, Sybase, Informix and
Delimited Text Files
Seagull BarTender supports a variety of text formats, including
quote, comma, CSV, tab, fixed width and custom delimiters.
SAP IDoc Files
SAP is the world's largest developer of ERP (Enterprise Resource
Planning) software. The Seagull BarTender Enterprise Edition can
read label data directly from SAP IDoc files, one of the most
flexible SAP integration methods available. In fact, Seagull
BarTender is the only label printing software package with an
SAP-certified interface. No file conversion is necessary - Seagull
BarTender opens and parses IDoc files "as is". Advanced options,
such as special "rules" for handling duplicate segments, eliminate
the need for custom programming.
Oracle and other XML
All Enterprise editions can automatically parse and process XML
“label requests” from Oracle’s WMS and MSCA applications. The
Enterprise Print Server edition also offers some more advanced
integration options. This includes XML "transforms," for data
conversion from any XML format, as well as XML Script - an
alternative to controlling BarTender using ActiveX.
