Generating 10 000 barcodes

Post by RytisT » Wed May 27, 2020 7:35 am

Hi. I need to add a ton of unique barcodes to a single PDF Template, I'm not sure if this is possible with pitstop and switch?

Basically, I can add a barcode in pitstop, but I don't know how to tell it to add it to a new page from a new line in csv?
Or another option is, to use SVG's for barcodes, to just place them in PDF template but then again, how do I import a SVG file into PitStop Server?

If anyone got any ideas how to solve this, I'd be thankful.

So just to clarify you have a csv of the barcode values as input?

Hi, you can use CSV2XML or Excel to XML apps to split your csv or excel file in separate xml files.
Then you process each xml file: inject your pdf template, and add the barcode with an action list, using variables from the xml files.
At the end of the flow you can assemble and merge the pdf files together.
