Re: letter G appear at the end of barcode

You have a "suffix" programmed into the barcode scanner. this is a common feature and allows for auditing (like a user signature) these can be removed, The code book should have pages of option programming barcodes, in which you should be able to find a section on programming prefixes and suffixes, there should be a control barcode which clears all suffixes. This should solve your problem

How can I create a Barcode for Free in Microsoft Excel?

<p>Placing barcode equipment or other things makes it easier to keep track of them. Instead of entering a long number, a quick scan with a bar code reader eliminates keystrokes. There are many different types of barcodes. The most famous is the Product Code or UPC Universal, in almost all items sold at retail in the United States. The UPC format only supports encryption of the songs. Other formats such as Code 39 (also known as Code 3 of 9) support letters and numbers. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Find a free TrueType font to the desired shape of the bar code. For example, the Code bar code format is 39 different TrueType font packages available free. Use an Internet search engine and type "Code 39 TrueType fonts" available in a free font found. Some specialized formats may not be available for free as a result of copyright or other restrictions. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. On your Windows PC, select the Start menu and click Control Panel. Within the Control Panel, click Switch to Classic View "and appearance of the panel. Find the" Fonts "icon and double click to open it. On the File menu, select" Install New Font. "This opens a menu dialog asking you to change the font to install. Navigate to the folder that contains the downloaded TrueType font file. Select the font and click OK when prompted to install it. The source of new bar code will be available in Excel. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Start Excel and enter "98765" in cell A1. This value is converted to a bar. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. In cell B1, type the following formula: "= CONCATENATE ("*", "*")" A1 and press enter. The result should be "* 98765 *". Code 39 format requires an asterisk at the beginning and end of the text to be encrypted. Bar code format other will have different rules. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Change the font in cell A1, choosing a different font from the drop-down menu at the top of the screen in Excel. Under the menu "Home", scroll down to "three of the nine free" source and select it. The text in the cell will now appear as a barcode. Increase font with a minimum of 28 points, so a scanner can pick up the scanning needs. <br />

How do I add CR to Barcode Value?

<p>The primary purpose of bar codes is to encode the unique characteristics of numbers and letters can be in a format that machines can easily read. However, bar codes are read by people often also for this reason, the codes generally include both parties readable and legible. The most popular bar codes meet a standard called "Code 39".

What would I put under the suffix and prefix when bar coding? My scanner is Symbole LS 2208

Hello Norma, you can use the suffix or prefix to send characters, which are not included in the barcodes tgehter with the scanned barcode data.
If you dont need any character before or after the data, you can leave it blank.
It is usually used to add an Enter or Tab to switch to the next line, while scanning to some application like excel.

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 to create the rule and print out an config sheet.

Code 128 Barcode Problem

Hello paul blando. I think I can help you here. First, are you sure your barcodes with asterisks are Code128 like the others? Generally a Code128 barcode will look like: "(1234) 567890 (01) 123456" and wouldn't really use asterisks at all. However, I know that it is standard practice for people who make their own Code39 barcodes to start and end the code with an asterisk to denote a start/stop action. Could they be Code39? They would look like: "*123456789*". If this is the case, then I have the manual for the P370/P470 on my company's site here. Take a look at the Code39 Chapter and make sure to print and scan the pages to disable the check-digit transmittal. If that doesn't do the trick, then try the "recall defaults" or "reset to defaults" barcode to reset the scanner to it's initial defaults. That should put it on track. If you still have trouble, please feel free to send me a message or email me. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Bar code reader problem

In the user manual for this device there should be a code book (or code pages), These are a selection of barcodes which you use to configure the device. One of the settings is to omit the barcode header (which indicates a type of barcode for instance a PART number might begin with P or a Serial number might begin with an S) This barcode system may have been initially programmed to omit these code letters Gareth

In order to scan the ?Factory Defaults? bar code in the Flic Operator?s Guide to reset your Flic scanner to the default settings: Select Flicware , Tools , Format and add the appropriate control character(s) in the Characters to Append box. Good luck.
