How do I disregard the last character on a UPC bar code?


In general you can create an Advanced Data Programming Rule which will say: If you scan an UPC barcode, please send only the first 11 characters of the barcode.
There are programming barcodes in the manual for the scanner or you can use the 123Scan2 application provided at support.symbol.com to create the rule and print out an config sheet.
