What does the header of the CSV file for the QR Code column begin with? Should be the # symbol, as in:
How are the cells in that column created? Static web address, calculated formula that gets its data from other cells in the same row?
I'm having the same problem using the October 2014 CC update.
The documentation is pretty thin in terms of prepping the data source, hopefully modifing the data source isn't required, otherwise a seemingly useful feature - isn't.
Are there any tutorials that show the steps required?
No real tuts that I am aware of. Here is a link to a sample set of files.
In the ZIP is an ID file, the merge text (tab delimited),4 images for the merge (hey, it's Disney character themed), and most importantly, an Excel file. In the Excel file, the last column is a calculated field that pulls together info from the other fields and adds the strings (text) that is needed.
I no longer have access to ID 2014. I used the trial version to help someone else do this and to prepare this sample. I suspect I can answer your questions without being able to actually see the ID file should you have any.
Take care, Mike
Thanks SO MUCH for the help and sample files. I missed the "#QRcode" header in the data table (the "#" actually). Being able to see a correct table was a huge help.
You're most welcome.
One other gotcha that took some time to figure out is that unless you close the Excel file after .csv export, you'll get an import error in ID.
So, be sure to close the Excel file after export
For those using Text Expander, creating a snippet for the QR code used in Excel is a time saver if you're doing a bunch of these. Just delete the unwanted tags and edit cells as needed.
I found this useful, especially the table with property names: vCard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
managed to find out what we were doing wrong!
We had #DATA on our QR file but could not get it to work even after upgrading. Turns out we had to install the new upgrade instead of just upgrading it to 10.1.0.70.
Originally we upgrading to 9.2.2 x 32 and it would not work on that.
