Symphony barcode creator
This is designed to work with Symphony barcodes: a star at either end of the
barcode is automatically inserted to make it
work with TAFE systems. Non-numeric
characters will be ignored in the barcode.
Do not use this with Internet Explorer. Use Chrome, or edge; or possibly Firefox.
Test, that the printed-out barcodes scan with the
TAFE scanner, as you go.
You can paste in the barcodes and numbers from the excel spreadsheet: in excel, copy 1
column by selecting vertically down with the mouse. You can also copy multiple columns - see below.
The barcodes will be printed in the same order as they are put into the text box below.
Barcodes may be input by keyboard (press enter between barcodes) or by
barcode reader. See below if you want a short text label to appear on top of the barcode.
- Manually setting a label to appear at top of barcode
On the same line as the barcode number, put in a dash ("-"). Write text to appear above the barcode. Press submit.
Sample = 123456-text
- Pasting from excel – numbers only
Select the numbers in the excel file by column or row. Copy. Paste. Press submit. Printed barcodes will be in same order.
Pasting from excel – 1 column of numbers plus one column of text for label
Arrange columns so that the numbers for the barcodes appear directly to the left of the
text for the labels. Select just the two columns (number and text). Paste. Press submit.
Printed barcodes will have the text appear above the barcode. [could be useful for BCA reports]
