( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi guys, I'm trying to print a bunch of barcodes, (PNG files I created earlier with GD::Barcode), using Word and the builtin setups for Avery labels. I reckoned this would be easier than getting out a ruler and messing with HTML::Table. The following code creates a page of the appropriately sized labels, but just inserts all the barcodes into the first cell of the table, rather than a separate barcode into each cell. That's where I'm stuck. I don't have time right now to learn the Word object model, and I need the labels today. Can anyone help? TIA Perlcgi
#!perl use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Word'; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 2; my $Word = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Word.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Word.Application', 'Quit'); $Word->{'Visible'} = 1; $Word->Documents->Add || die("Unable to create document ", Win32::OLE->LastError()); my $MyRange = $Word->ActiveDocument->Content; #Label L7651 is the one we want $Word->MailingLabel->CreateNewDocument({Name=>'L7651', Address=>"", AutoText=>"ToolsCreateLabels1", LaserTray=>wdPrinterManualFeed}); my ($row,$col)=(1,1); #Each barcode is in a separate file like 99990000.png for (my $x = 99990000; $x<99990065;$x++) { my $file = "C:\\mbc\\$x.png"; if ($col > 5) { $col = 1; $row++; } $Word->ActiveDocument->Tables(1)->Cell($row,$col)->Select; $Word->Selection->InlineShapes->AddPicture( {FileName=>$file, LinkToFile=>'False', SaveWithDocument=>'True'}); } print Win32::OLE->LastError();

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
