I want to read the code128 setB barcode in PDF from folder C:\pdf\*.pdf and the barcode contain different department information. Base on this information I can print to different printer.

the issue is how can I read the value from "Barcode Scan" task and transfer to workflow variable?

Thanks in advance

Hi Alak,

Whenever you use the Barcode Scan task, a metadata file is created with the values of the barcode. So you can then use a Set Job Info and Variable task, and do a data selection on the metadata to assign it to a variable. (right-click in a field, and choose Get Metadata Location, then select the proper field)

Hope that helps!
