Re: part of code

The rule you tried applying initially is the right one, however, you need to know what symbology is the barcode that you have and apply it to that symbology in order to get it to work.

123scan will work but my recommendation is that after you created all the required rules rather than download the config to the scanner you print the configuration barcodes.

I hope this helps, otherwise get back to me and i will find another way to resolve it, however, i may need a sample barcode so i can analise it.

Re: part of code

Everything you need is came from your system mechanism. The only way to control your requirements is came from your programm coding.

at the start of the string sending must be filtered and rearrange from your program mechanism.

From what system you need to used barcode scanner? Are you using POS? I would like to recommend you to used visual basic 6.0 for better outcome.

Hope you like my solution please rate me Solved.

best regards,

Why doesn't it scan?

usually you need to configure the reader to tell it what kind of barcodes you want it to read and how to interpret & output the codes to your computer (whether you need prefix or suffixes to your codes( for automation))

the user manual for the reader has some bar codes to configure the settings for the scanner.

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". The latest version of the code with 39 additional characters called "Extended Code 39." Among other characters, Extended Code 39 allows users to include carriage returns (CR) in bar codes. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Setting the bar code scanner to read "Extended Code 39," Code 39 is not as common support CR. The details depend on the specific bar code scanning software is used, but you will usually find this option under "Tools" then "Options." <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Configure the software to generate bar code to the "Extended Code 39" is also used. The details depend on the specific software to generate barcode is used, but you will usually find this option under "Tools" then "Options." <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Type "M $" (without the quotes) at the point where you want the CR model is within the barcode. M $ gives a CR Extended Code 39. <br />

I have a new LS4278. I need to congigure it to read fedex barcode

All you have to do is create a rule to transmit only the 12 digits you want.

Problems with very small Barcodes

Default settings set a global limit of 4.

You can set the global minimum code length by following the instructions in the user manual on page 24:

1) Start
2) Set Global Min Length
3) Scan the number on page 303: I.e. '0' followed by '3' to set length to 3
4) Set
5) End

I can't programmed my IT3800LR

Jaquino, there is a programming bar code to reset the device to factory settings in the user guide. I know you said that it is reading other bar codes like they are not programming bar codes, but have you tried this bar code? Usually it works, even when the device is totally hosed, unless there is some kind of hardware failure.

Here's the link to the Quick Start from the company website:

The factory reset bar code is on printed page 4 of the PDF document.

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

The problem with reading the barcode

Be sure the Flic scanner is set to the factory default configuration by scanning the Defaults bar code given above. Then check the Format options for Characters to Strip and Characters to Append (see page 10) and make sure these are set correctly. 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.
