Creating a Series of Labels

You can automatically generate labels by creating a series. You create a starting pattern, and then set the increment and count for the series.

You can serialize any number or letter by selecting the position to be incremented, such as the number 2 in 123 or the letter B in ABC. For example, when the 2 is selected in 123 and the increment #=3, the resulting labels would print as 123, 153, and 183.

Letters can be incremented from A to Z and a to z, and numbers from 1 to 9. When the letter Z or the number 9 is reached during serialization, a letter or number is added to increase the increment. For example, Az increments to Aaa, AZ increments to BA, and A9 increments to A10.

Three methods of serialization are available: simple, simultaneous, and advanced.

Using Simple Serialization

Simple serialization creates a series of labels by incrementing one alphanumeric character in the pattern. For example, 101, 102, 103, 104, and so on.
