Generate from Excel to PDF

Post by JERRY89 »

Dear All,

Is there any way to generate sticker from sheet (Barcode Sticker) in the excel file to PDF base on the data in the Master Data.I need to generate a duplicate copy for each of the sticker to be in PDF. Example, sticker A in page 1 , Duplicate in page 2 & sticker B page 3 , Duplicate in page 4 and etc until end of the data.

Hi Hans,

I notice the Batch No won't change while running the code & Material Group. In between can it directly generate out as PDF. Usually i have more than 400 Batch No of sticker which will generate around 800 sticker and i afraid this file become very bulky so i guess direct generate as PDF will be better.Example 800 sticker in one PDF (800 pages).

I made a mistake, I can correct that.
But what do you want?
1) a single PDF file with all stickers
2) a PDF file for each batch number (with 2 stickers per file)
3) a separate PDF for each sticker
Regards,
Hans

Hi Hans,

You are right. I wan a single PDF file with all the sticker, a pdf file for each batch number with 2 sticker. Can combine all sticker in one PDF with different page.Example Sticker for BAtch No YTD8888 in PDF Pg 1 & Copy in Pg 2, Batch No YTD88996 in Pg 3 & Copy in Pg 4 and so on.

If you want a single file, we'll have to generate all stickers before exporting to PDF. Here is the corrected version.

Dear Hans,

Code: Select all

Option Explicit

Sub GenerateStickers()
    Dim w1 As Worksheet
    Dim w2 As Worksheet
    Dim r As Long
    Dim m As Long
    Dim s As Long
    Dim i As Long
    Set w1 = Worksheets("Master Data")
    Set w2 = Worksheets("Barcode Sticker")
    w2.Range("12:" & w2.Rows.Count).Clear
    w2.PageSetup.PrintArea = "B2:C11"
    m = w1.Range("A" & w1.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    For r = 2 To m
        s = 20 * r - 38
        For i = 1 To 2
            w2.Range("B2:D11").Copy Destination:=w2.Range("B" & s + 10 * (i - 1))
            w2.Range("C" & s + 6 + 10 * (i - 1)).Value = w1.Range("D" & r).Value
            w2.Range("B" & s + 8).Resize(2, 2).Merge Across:=True
        Next i
    Next r
    m = s + 19
    For s = 12 To m Step 10
        w2.HPageBreaks.Add Before:=w2.Range("A" & s)
    Next s

My apologies, I misread your question. Here is the revised code.

Code: Select all

Sub GenerateStickers()
    Dim w1 As Worksheet
    Dim w2 As Worksheet
    Dim r As Long
    Dim m As Long
    Dim s As Long
    Set w1 = Worksheets("Master Data")
    Set w2 = Worksheets("Barcode Sticker")
    w2.Range("12:" & w2.Rows.Count).Clear
    w2.PageSetup.PrintArea = "B2:C11"
    m = w1.Range("A" & w1.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    For r = 2 To m
        s = 10 * r - 18
        w2.Range("B2:D11").Copy Destination:=w2.Range("B" & s)
        w2.Range("C" & s + 6).Value = w1.Range("D" & r).Value
        w2.Range("B" & s + 8).Resize(2, 2).Merge Across:=True
    Next r
    m = s + 9
    For s = 12 To m Step 10
        w2.HPageBreaks.Add Before:=w2.Range("A" & s)
    Next s
    w2.PageSetup.PrintArea = "B2:C" & m
    w2.ExportAsFixedFormat Type:=xlTypePDF, Filename:="Barcode.pdf"
End Sub

Hans
