DOCUMENT PERSONALIZATION

Scantron DesignExpert's Merge Wizard database link allows you to use your laser printer to overprint standard and custom forms with personalized data. Image documents use text and bar codes for print personalization. The Merge Wizard supports popular database formats, including Microsoft® Excel, Microsoft® Access, comma separated ASCII text files, and tab delimited ASCII text files.

MERGEPRINT UTILITY SOFTWARE

The MergePrint module allows you to print variable information from your database directly onto your scannable form. This tool is highly effective for personalizing forms with name and address information, identification numbers, course information, or product information. You can also use it to add caption text and graphics.

SCANTOOLS SOFTWARE INTERFACE

Scantron DesignExpert software enables you to get a head start on programming OMR forms by defining response areas for scanning. Once defined, the software transfers the design data to the ScanTools software, which automates processing and converts responses to usable information.
