Looking for how one would create a 'label' inside of an existing PDF.  Scanned Document needs to have a Text / barcode label added so that application is able to read and direct document to the correct file.

 

Best process i've seen thus far is to manually create in WORD/EXCEL and them merge with the exitising PDF.

Not knowing how you create your Labels, I would start by suggesting you look into the Stamp function of Acrobat and see if you can configure something there.

roaring... That's a great idea.  If you have an image of your barcode, you can make a custom stamp using that image.

My best,

Dave

A Stamp would be ideal - however the information on the Stamp would change for each document reviewed/updated.  I envision that the process of creating a Stamp for each document could be cumbersome.  If the Stamp can be created as a 'form' to allow select data entry for each unique document that would be better

Acroabt Form toolset does contain a Barcode Tool:

I've never used it, but perhaps you can explore to see if it has the capabilities you need.
