Combining rules: UPCA and Sequential Numbering

Mike Duschak

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to combine the sequential numbering rule and the UPCA barcode rule?


My starting number would be 850000 and ending at 970000.


I would need to use the UPCA Barcode rule so the checksum is calculated correctly.


I know the easy way would be the create the list as a CSV and import, but I want to know if there is a way to avoid having to do the extra step of creating a separate file.


Thanks for your help/thoughts on this one!

I use a combination of two rules;


return FormatNumber("00000000000" 849999 + CurrentRecordNumber());

name that rule "numbering" then make a new rule like this;


return MakeUPCABarcode(Rule("numbering"))

if you are not using UPCA barcodes and you don't need the 11 digits you can use a simpler numbering rule like this


return 849999 + CurrentRecordNumber();

hope this helps.
