Generating Labels

To generate bar code labels, you must first set up the attributes for each label type on the Label Setup page. Next, you generate a flat file containing the label data by running a PeopleSoft Process Scheduler Structured Query Report (SQR) program from the label-specific run control page. Use the Generate Labels component to create this flat file. Finally, you pass the flat file to an in-house or a third-party bar code label product to print the labels.

The PeopleSoft system can print 10 types of labels:
