Question about Metrologic Instruments Voyager BT MS9535 Handheld
I want to create a laminated scan card with various core functions directly out of the programing manual. To do so I need to know the name of the barcode format the Metrologic uses for the instructions set forth in the manual and from which you can directly scan. In other words, what barcode format does Metrologic use in their manuals to be able to tell the reader how it is to be programed? I'd love some help with this. email@example.com
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE
I finally figured out the problem, thanks to Here4you's help. The Metrologic VoyagerBT does indeed use the 128 barcoding protocols. The reason my barcodes were not scanning in properly is that the correct barcodes had a hidden "Function-3" prefix, which all of the scanner's programming codes have. I am still having trouble figuring out how to input a "Function-3" prefix into the various barcode generation programs I am testing. I use Macs, not PCs so many of you may be inclined to recommend certain programs that are are exclusively made for PCs. I will be creating the data for the barcodes in either Excel or Filemaker, so I am attempting to input the ASCII equivalent for the Function-3, with mixed results. Thanks for the help!

I don't have a manual with me tonight .. but I think its a code 3 of 9 with a twist. If the codes in your manual only have 2 barwidths (narrow and wide) my memory is correct. If there are more than 2 barwidths its c128.
A standard c3 of 9 barcode has a start-stop pattern that decodes into an '*'
When '12345 is rendered into a C3of9 barcode the code actually holds *12345*
Barcode readers spot the code by looking for the *. Metrologic's codes are using a different start stop pattern. Again if memory services me they use a '#' so this makes the code "unreadable" by all but a verifier. It also means that most barcode production programs can't print it ...becuase they impose the standard for start/stop patterns.
The easy way to create one of those cards (for Metrologic) is to forget all the yadda I'm giving you. Instead figure out which pages you need . Next copy the pages of barcodes you used to get the setup correct. Then do a cut and paste job onto a blank page of paper. It goes quite quickly and the barcodes copy well.
If none of that helps then PCscan a page of codes in your manual and email the image to me. My eyeballs are (sadly) calibrated to read barcodes and I can quickly tell you what you've got.
