I am using CoreDraw to print label.
I need to print the serial number on each.
I can't find such function in CoreDraw, or there are other programm can do this?

BR,

I think Word can do this, and probably its open source siblings can, too.
Using fields and calculations.

IIRC, Avery has a program which does this (with presets for their labels).

You can probably find some shareware or PD programs too, this is a really
common requirement. I wrote a custom program to do this some years ago, with
database storage of particular EEPROM setup values for each unit, using
Turbo C++.

You can use the Mail Merge function in Word or Microsoft Publisher to do
this. I find it easiest to use Excel as the input file and print them like
mailing labels. I am using Word 2000 and I can assure you it is quirky. The
only information that is useful is in the Word Help files.

Publisher 2003 is a lot easier and works as advertised. I still use Excel as
an input file, it is just easier for me. My serial number operation is
usually event tickets for fund raisers I work on as a volunteer. I do
several newsletters each month which is why I have Publisher.

If you have a real Dos machine around with a printer the program is easy to
write in Turbo Pascal, Basic or even C.

I cannot advise with Linux, I have become bogged there.

Label printers often now come with applications that make this nearly a
no brainer.  But my first "contract" position was printing serial and
lot numbers on a label printer for spindles of fiber made by DuPont.  It
was all written in BASIC on a PC.

I am not sure you can even print on the printer from a Dos window under XP
anymore.
Is it really progress?

Well you can print from cmd.

I wrote that stuff back in about 1987.  Windows?  That was that goofy
text box thing.  It didn't do graphics yet really.

But I am not a fan of the Evil Redmond Empire.

You certainly can, assuming the DOS program does things in a "standard"
sort of way.

Windows and progress, hmm, there was a time when windows WAS progress,
these days I don't see it that way anymore.
