How to Serialize with BarTender Software

Assigning sequential numbers using serialization to assign unique identifiers to items.

Example: Suppose that you want your serialization to increment (or decrement) by specific numbers, letters, or characters, rather than a simple consistent interval. You enter the following sequence in the Sequence field: 1862730. If you set the sequence to increment by 1, your serialization sequence would look like this: 1, 8, 6, 2, 7, 3, 0, 11, 18, 16, 12, 17, etc.
