Uncover a strategy that enables you to print barcode labels from SAP ERP using SATO printers. Find out how you can create a SATO Barcode Program language data stream from an ABAP report that contains the command for printing text, boxes, and barcodes.
Labels are commonly used in warehouse management and retail operations. SATO printers use thermal printing technology to print label images on small sticker label paper arrayed on roll paper. The labels contain information such as barcode, quantity, price, and other important text, including material name. Using the SATO Barcode Program language (SBPL) in SAP ERP enables you to define the label format and the label printing process.
Many companies use barcode printing to improve their day-to-day business operations through better data management and accessibility. It helps companies to reduce costs, increase productivity, and eliminate human error. We explain how to write a custom ABAP report in SAP ERP to design and format labels. In contrast to using third-party software for this formatting, the ABAP program gives you greater control and flexibility of the output. You can use different sets of commands to print text and barcodes on the labels to suit your needs.
