I am new to Epicor we have version 10 and I know they are doing an upgrade soon.
We have a manufacturing business - building custom machines
I would like to be able to print the part labels from Epicor to attach to the individual parts that come in so that when assembly is ready they have all the information on the label that is attached to each part.
I am looking to get the following on a label: (part name, part number, Mfg part #, Assembly #, etc.)
I know that there are labels as I have seen this on one of the many screens, but I am not sure how to do this and what printer I would need.
If anyone can be of help I would greatly appreciate it as I am so overwhelmed by the Epicor system.
Thanks in advance!
There are a few ways we print labels using Epicor data. There really isn’t a one size fits all solution.
Excel (using an Odata feed and making a custom print area)
We also have a few different type of Zebra label printers being used, so it really comes down to your application. Costs, Size of Labels, Speed of printing labels…
What I am looking for is a way to print off labels when I go into Receipt Entry and enter the parts that have been received.
I would like a label to print so I can attach it to the part(s) so it is easier for Assemblers to read and put parts on shelves for each assembly on the machine.
I would say I would need to print off 10-100 labels per day – this number will probably increase very soon.
I am also not sure where or how to setup the label feature in Epicor so these can be printed out.
I apologize but we went through a merge, and we are now on Epicor and there has been no training.
It was hard just getting the few instructions on how to enter items, etc.
Ms. Brandi: if you are doing PO receipts - You can print Tags or Labels (using SSRS) . You could also do Bartender - but that is a much longer story.
The labels are pretty much straight up standard SSRS - one limitation is that the qty will be the same for all labels.
If you print the “Tag” then you can specify the quantities for each box - i.e. you received 100 - a box of 20 a box of 30 and a box of 50. the “Tag” will allow you to print 3 labels, 20,30, and 50.
I’ve done it with a customization of Receipt Entry and a Dymo LabelWriter 550 Turbo.
Along with a Data Directive BPM on RcvDtl.Update with an AutoPrint and a condition too for an added row or updated row (for reprints via a checkbox click on the form where I quickly set, then otrans.Update(); and reset an unused field in the table to make that happen). I also use SSRS and a Report Style for the label with a small 30252 Address label that prints the part num, desc, date, PO / Line/ Rel and quantity. It worked best for me to use the USB connected Dymo and the same printer name all the time.
Thank you for your reply – I will look into this.
