Take a look at  EZEdocs from RJS Software. I have implemented it several
times for clients. Currently using it for several 4.05 environments, and one
8.3LX. They are using AP module for check printing in LX/FM. Invoicing, ord
acks, statements in LX.

It allows linking to any database via fields from spooled file.Allows
conditioning based on spooled contents.  Forms can run as an automerge in
batch, also has api/commands that can be imbedded to merge forms, email,
convert to .pdf, etc.. Not sure about initiating calls.

Much cheaper than Optio as well.

Subject: [BPCS-L] Forms Packages for BPCS V8.2


Speaking of forms packages.  Because of a contemplated move to BPCS
v8.2, we have to consider new forms processing software.  BPCS V8.2 for
reasons known only to someone is written over a DBCS data base which our
current forms processing (OPTIO) can't handle.  I have written a
workaround, but have been told to investigate other options.

  We have the following non negotiable requirements:

    Must run on the Iseries (V5R3)
    Must be able to do SQL calls back to the system for data not on the
spool file.
    Must be able to handle DBCS spool files.
    Must be able to initiate calls to the system and start other jobs
based on the contents of the spool file.

Can any one recommend a forms processing package that satisfies the
above?

I have worked on various versions of BPCS using forms packages and in
each case we used the contents of spool files to generate the barcodes.
I cannot say whether BPCS has the capability to print bar codes (I
expect
not) or since the clients were using the forms package to print other
forms we decided to forgo whatever capability BPCS has and use the
package.

In the past, ERP software solution providers concentrated on their
specialty and left the niche market of forms process to other vendors.

Gregory,

Thanks for the reply, but I don't see how it answers my questions
concerning the capabilities of ERP LX.

Do you have any specific information about ERP LX?  Or even the v6
releases of BPCS?

Thank you,

Charles Wilt

Most generally the bar code generation software works off either data
in a spool file or extracted data from the data base.

Within most these software solutions barcode printing is an integral
component of the product while in others the capability is an add on
feature.

Just curious as to how barcoded label printing is handled in shops
running ERP LX.

Does BPCS include any integral capabilities?

Does BPCS interface with external application such as TL Ashford's
Barcode/400?  How?


Thank you,

Charles Wilt
