Hi, We use a Neopost DS180 inserter. I need to know what would be the best approach. I need to test and make sure DS180 pulls the right number of pages for each record. Some records are 3 pages some are 4,5,7 pages. We create PDF and PS files.

Do I need to print page numbering on each page or I may just need to know the total number of pages for each document?

Which option would be best to use, OMR, Datamartix or Barcode?
Do I need special fonts or files or I just use PP Design barcode drop down menu and select one with the page numbering?

Your guidance is appreciated.

THANKS

Sami,

DS180 looks a nice bit of kit! We have 2 x DS85i and have a daily job that is variable pages. For this, we simply use OMR. On all but the last page I put a single black line and on the last page only, add a second line. This has worked fine for years.

When we get the daily file, I split into individual records, add }}}}} to the end of the record. In my form, I have a condition that looks for those characters and that's what I base the second mark on.
