I think that what you want is the carriage return/enter after each barcode. See half-way down page 6 in chapter 13 in the manual (or this link: http://www.fixya.com/support/p270882-symbol_ls2208_ls22081azd0100z_handheld/manual-19284/page-250

Hi, to program two tiles before the data you must use Advanced Data Formatting bar codes from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. You will need to print and scan the following barcodes:
Begin new rule
Send tilde
Send tilde
Send all data that remains
Send enter key (if you need an enter after the data )
Save rule
Go to the Motorola Solutiond Support Portal and search for LS2208 PRG. The guide has also been stored on Fixya.com

When i scan a barcode why do i have to push enter?


Scan these three barcodes from the LS2208 Product Reference Guide:

Scan Options
Data Suffix
Enter

The scanner will then be programmed to send an enter after every barcode you scan.

Symbol LS2208: Suffix with 2 x ENTER


You may need to enter two "rules", each adding an "enter" to the data. This is programmed by scanning special barcodes in the manual, which you can download here:

Suffix with 2 x ENTER


Try programming it by setting up a pair of ADF rules, each adding an "enter". This is done by scanning configuration barcodes from the manual in the correct sequence. You can get the manual here:

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.

Scanner beeps but doesn't enter data into system


Have you scanned the configuration barcodes on the manual? For example if you are using keyboard wedge cable, you will need to scan the keyboard wedge barcode from the manual. Page 20.

1.Set Defaults
2. Scan Options
3.<Data><Suffix>
4.Enter
5.The barecode for whatever type of connection you use (RS232, Keyboard, etc.)
