Hello Jonathan,
you would need to assign the rules to a specific ruleset. Then you switch between the ruleset to specify which rules are active at the moment. Please see the ADF chapter in the Reference Guide for LS2208 for the barcodes http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880807apdf

My barcode scanning set up should be: scan tab scan enter. How can I program it


Hi,The easiest way would be to print out the control code for <tab> <enter> and scan them after you barcode is scanned.
As far as i know its not possible to have two post-emble's and to alternate between the two.
The other and far harder way is to have the text input fields on your program to deliver the correct <tab>, <enter> when you exit the text field.

regards

How do i program the LS2208 not to send the EAN-13 check digit and send ENTER key / carriage return


LS2208 needs a ADF Rule added to it to send the "Enter" on the end of all code. Scan123 is also an easy solution. Download it if you don't have it. Basically in Scan123 select the type of scanner you are working with, then select the ADF Rules tab. Make a new rule that says ANY Code, Any Length, and then under actions I put Line 1 "Send all that remains" Line 2 "Send Numeric Key <Enter>. Save the rule. Then select the Symbologies Tab, Select UPC/EAN Tab and select what options you want. Then select the Print Icon, Tick Symbologies , ADF Rules & Programming BarCodes boxes. Print them out and then scan them into your scanner. Job done

When I scan with Symbol DS6707 I normally get letter b showing up after the scanned numbers. Please help!


There is probably an rule set on the scanner from the previous user. To be sure that you are not using any old settings. I would suggest to reset it to factory settings.
Connect the scanner to your Desktop PC. Download the Reference Guide for DS6707 at the page http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=8397807apdf Scan the Barcode Set All Defaults Scan the Barcode Erase All Rules
The scanner is now in factory settings and you can configure it as you need.

SPACE problem. Hello i have Symbol LS 2208. I need remove space/gap from this code 09/ 5864 I tried to create rule for this (remove all spaces) but it wasn´t work - the scanner scaned no data. I use...


Hello, if all your barcodes have the same structure, it will an easy task. You would need to scan following barcodes from ADF chapter in the Product Reference Guide located at http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880807apdf
Create New Rule Send Characters Up To Space Character in Alfanumeric Section Skip Ahead 1 Send All That Remains Save Rule
This will by all scanned barcodes send all characters up to the space character, skip the space and send the rest of data.

When I scan a barcode with the Symbol LS 4278 scanner it duplicates the barcode. How can I fix this?


There was probably some kind of ADF Rule applyed, please scan the barcode Set All Defaults and Erase All Rules from ADF Chapter in the manual for LS4278 aailable here http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=6983404apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=190394003&stateId=1%200%20190388491

LS 2208. I have to add preffix ^ to Code 39 and suffix @ to


The easiest way to do this would be to write two Advanced Data Formatting rules using the LS2208 Product Reference Guide at this link (I suggest saving a copy then printing the pages from that saved copy)

http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=118232754&stateId=0%200%2012083692

You should scan the following barcodes in order:

Begin New Rule Adobe page 232 of 342
Send All Data that Remains Adobe page 246 of 342
Send @ Adobe page 272 of 342
Save Rule Adobe page 232 of 342
Begin New Rule Adobe page 232 of 342
Code 39 Adobe page 235 of 342
Send ^ Adobe page 275 of 342
Send All Data that Remains Adobe page 246 of 342
Send @ Adobe page 272 of 342
Save Rule Adobe page 232 of 342

Scanning the barcodes in this order will make the scanner send an @ after every barcode scanned other than Code 39. Code 39 barcodes will get the ^ before the data and an @ after the data.

I would like to transmit EAN-13 bar code without check digit, but closed by ENTER.


If you would like the LS2208 to transmit only the first twelve digits of an EAN-13 barcode followed by an enter you will have to write an Advanced Data Formatting rule using barcodes from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide found here: http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5880806apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=114420371&stateId=1%200%20114410810

The barcodes you will print and scan in the order they are listed are:
Begin New Rule
EAN-13 (from the Critera pages of the ADF section)
Send Next 12 Characters
Send Enter key
Save Rule

If all other barcodes require an enter key make sure you scan Scan Options, Data Suffix, Enter (from the same manual or from the Quick Start Guide) before scanning the ADF rule above.

Need my p470 symbol scanner to auto enter


It depends on whether you are using a keyboard wedge or a serial connection. Use 123Scan or MCL to make a change to the ADF file that tells the scanner what to do. Then you will have to upload the file to the scanner.

Appending an "Enter" to a scanned bar code
(Keyboard Wedge connection)
Scanned bar code data 04843100Criteria 1 Code type = Any
Criteria 2 Code Length = Any Length
Action 1 Send all that remains Action 2 Send Value Keycode = 7013 <Enter> (String field must be empty)
Output after ADF rule 04843100<Enter>
Note: To have an ADF rule applied to all scanned bar codes, leave the criteria unspecified (Code Type = Any and Code Length = Any Length).

Appending a "Carriage Return Line Feed" to a scanned bar code
(serial connection)
Scanned bar code data 04843100
Criteria 1 Code type = Any
Criteria 2 Code Length = Any Length
Action 1 Send all that remains
Action 2 Send Value String = \0D\0A

Note: Keycode value is ignored when string field is populated.

Output after ADF rule 04843100<Carriage Return Line Feed>

P370 WILL NOT connect with your terminal or base, so forget about this intent and go for the goal which is loading your programming to your scanner. According to Motorola the work around is simple and faster than trying to resolve this.
Start with Reseting the scanner completly back to Defaults.
In the 123Scan, PRINT Barcodes and the rules ADF Rules of your programming.
Start scanning from
"Parameter Settings" until the last page barcode "Reset Scanner".
That is it. Problem solved.
You will need to do this for every new programming Rule.
