Fax Mail merge on WC7855 or Color560

Jump to solution

Hi!

 

We have a WC7855 and a WC560 in our office.

 

We need the functionality to send a written letter (Mail Merge) to the Fax device in the printer without using the adressbook.

In our Letter is a textfield with the faxnumber (in Textcolor white - so the receiver cant see the field). When our actual Faxsolution gets the letter it recognizes this, use the number and send the letter.

 

In the Xerox case he receives the letter and i found no way to give him the number automatically. There´s always a pop up where he´s asking for the number. We send around 500 Letters per day

 

Any ideas ?

 

Thanks so far !

  • We need the functionality to send a written letter (Mail Merge) to the Fax device in the printer without using the adressbook.

Assuming from a PC, just install a driver and call it 7855 fax, then have it set to by default fax to a particular number. If multiple numbers, install multiple times and name ala "7855 Fax David" etc.

 

  • In our Letter is a textfield with the faxnumber (in Textcolor white - so the receiver cant see the field). When our actual Faxsolution gets the letter it recognizes this, use the number and send the letter.

You are going to need to tell us/me what the "Fax solution" is, I assume some software PC side, but have no idea how it then would send that number only it knows to the printer.

 

  • In the Xerox case he receives the letter and i found no way to give him the number automatically. There´s always a pop up where he´s asking for the number. We send around 500 Letters per day

Who are the Him and He in this statement/question? Where does a pop-up occur? As an outsider, I have no idea what you are stating/asking at all.

Hi Joe and thanks for the fast reply,

 

English isn´t as easy as i thought... :)

 

The question is:

How can I automatically set the recipient of a fax and other data from an application?

 

I don´t want to enter the number in an adressbook befor a when i send the fax.

Actual we use a Tobit Solution and in the Word Document is a field like @@faxnumber@@ and the faxdriver sends then the fax to this number without any interactions with the user.

 

Kind regards

 

Carsten

Well, sorry, I can help with that.

 

More than likely the only way to get it to work is to get the software to know how to deal with the Xerox device, and that is well beyond my ability.

maybe you can use a PDL reference guide to send a fax?
