If you are running Smartstream Designer, it has variable data function built in. You use it in a similar fashion as InDesign, it has text fields, image fields, etc.

Maybe you don't have that functionality.

If it doesn't have to go to the rip for any purpose, you might have to do what we do and print the pdf direct to the printer. That saved us a lot of time but we could do it because all the impo, etc. is done before it gets ripped.

We had all the full functionality on our old machine and the newer one we purchased had nothing. What a pain in the ass for prepress prep. I must tell you.

Digital Printing / Variable data printing on HP Indigo?
« Last post by wonderings on February 13, 2020, 12:02:54 PM »
At the new company I am with we have an HP Indigo. Prints really nice but seems to be missing features I am used to on the smaller digital presses. Ran a Versant 2100 before.

Now I have a variable job, about 5,000 records. I am imposing the merged files and sending it to the printer where it takes a long time. On our Versant I would make a Master page with all static info and then bring in a variable document which would be just the imprinted addresses. Would RIP super quick and be printing in no time. I tried searching for Indigo variable and only came up with an Indesign plugin which does not mimic what I would do simply on the Xerox. Are there any tools to do what I could do before on the Indigo? Or do they not have this functionality in the HP RIP?

We had a Versant 2100, so basically the same thing. Ran all day and night 12pt, 14pt, 16pt without issue. You should have zero issues with a 12pt stock. My favourite uncoated stock was Lynx, ran great, held alignment and prints looked fantastic on it.

In excel spreadsheets, VALUE means there is something wrong
you may want to do a search to fix this in the program you are using.

Not sure any one here is using google sheets
Good luck!

I would find an Oracle forum, and post the error there, maybe they can give you a lead on what it may be. As I'm not an Oracle db wiz, or anywhere close to it. But that is what I would do.
Random Technology / IFTTT & Google Sheets Issue
« Last post by SkillSans on February 13, 2020, 07:23:33 AM »
Hi, has anyone got experience of using IFTTT in conjunction with Google Sheets?

I have got so far in a small project but am now hitting a snag.

Every time I run an applet that is intended to add a track to a Spotify playlist, it gives an error (saying "THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH GOOGLE SHEETS" followed by "No Details Available").

I don't trust this error message, as the first step also utilises Google Sheets, and runs without any errors - so I think it something I am not doing correctly. (I have also ran a simple test in a different folder, using Google Sheets which also works fine)

(I should have pointed out - I have extremely limited experience with spreadsheets in general)

Still with me? I'll try and explain what I think may be going wrong....

The final stage in the process is to do a search on Spotify of a Track (columnB) and the Artist (columnA). The spreadsheet that these search terms are inputted into has "VALUE!" In the cells that haven't been occupied yet. Does this mean that when IFTTT tries to do a search, it will be attempting to do a search from the last row (ie "VALUE!") rather than the new Track/Artist that is further up the spreadsheet?

Hope this makes enough sense for someone to assist!
(I can make screenshots later tonight if that gives any better info to anybody)

An Oracle database issue like that above my skill set. I assume your customer doesn't have a service contract with Kodak since he isn't already dealing with them. But if it were me I would open a support case with Kodak. My guess is that originally it would have probably been an easy fix but his tampering probably made things a whole lot worse. But Kodak can probably fix it fairly quickly since Prinergy isn't running so the database should still be intact unless someone has been tampering with it.

Thank you for responding team.
However everything checks out.

I must notify this, the customer got so frustrated that he put some CDs in and did some re-installs of applications, he doesn't recall which ones but I thought it's worth a mention.

Using static IP
Password is as it should be with the user created and setup as a service account.
Server name is the same
Firewall is Off
Araxi Service is setup to run as ARAXI username

Here is the log file (
