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 support.symbol.com to create the rule and print out an config sheet.

How do I create a UPC Code Labels?


<p>Universal Product Code (UPC barcode) is numeric, computer-readable tags used to track products in a store or warehouse. GS1 is the only body that the numbers of the original UPC barcode can give companies in the United States. The acquisition of authentic bar code numbers for your UPC labels, you need a partner and GS1 bar code numbers for your payments. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Suppose your company expects annual turnover, number of products that will sell that require UPC bar codes, contact information and your business. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2.

Pay your membership online by credit card, or follow the instructions as part of an application to send a check. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log on to the GS1 site a day after your membership is processed to determine your company's prefix number. This number is unique to your company and is an essential part of your bar code numbers. His company prefix, the first 2-6 numbers of the barcode. Download your number of UPC bar code on the site of GS1. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4.

Hi. I'm not sure if this will help you, but I found this website:

UPC Database Item Lookup

According to this website:

"Enter the all digits printed on the UPC bar code, including any numbers to the right or left of the bar code itself, even if they don't line up with the main row of numbers. This should be 13 digits for an EAN/UCC-13, 12 digits for a Type A UPC code, or 8 digits for a Type-E (zero-supressed) UPC code. Anything other than 8 or 12 digits is not a UPC code! (And just because it's 8 or 12 digits doesn't mean it is a UPC.) You must enter every digit here.
If you have a barcode scanner that outputs plain numbers, you should be able to use it to enter the UPC number here."

So, apparently you need more digits to complete the bar code #. But if you have the full barcode, you should be able to enter it on the website linked above, and find the image of the frames that you are looking for. I hope this helped. Thanks!

Explain bar codes


A bar code (often seen as a single word, barcode) is the small image of lines (bars) and spaces that is affixed to retail store items, identification cards, and postal mail to identify a particular product number, person, or location. The code uses a sequence of vertical bars and spaces to represent numbers and other symbols. A bar code symbol typically consists of five parts: a quiet zone, a start character, data characters (including an optional check character), a stop character, and another quiet zone.
A BarCode Readeris used to read the code. The reader uses a laser beam that is sensitive to the reflections from the line and space thickness and variation. The reader translates the reflected light into digital data that is transferred to a computer for immediate action or storage. Bar codes and readers are most often seen in supermarkets and retail stores, but a large number of different uses have been found for them. They are also used to take inventory in retail stores; to check out books from a library; to track manufacturing and shipping movement; to sign in on a job; to identify hospital patients; and to tabulate the results of direct mail marketing returns. Very small bar codes have been used to tag honey bees used in research. Readers may be attached to a computer (as they often are in retail store settings) or separate and portable, in which case they store the data they read until it can be fed into a computer.
There is no one standard bar code; instead, there are several different bar code standards called symbologies that serve different uses, industries, or geographic needs. Since 1973, the Uniform Product Code (UPC), regulated by the Uniform Code Council, an industry organization, has provided a standard bar code used by most retail stores. The European Article Numbering system (EAN), developed by Joe Woodland, the inventor of the first bar code system, allows for an extra pair of digits and is becoming widely used. POSTNET is the standard bar code used in the United States for ZIP codes in bulk mailing. The following table summarizes the most common bar code standards.

After scanning a bar code I need it to enter and go to next row in excel


Hi,

This can be possible, therefore it is not an Excel setting. You would need
to use the software that comes with your bar-code reader to configure this.

Try looking in your bar-code reader documentation for "Append Enter" or
"Append Carriage Return"

What is the upc?


UPC=Universal Product Code
Wikipedia says:
The UPC encodes 12 decimal digits as SLLLLLLMRRRRRRE, where S (start) and E (end) are the bit pattern 101, M (middle) is the bit pattern 01010 (called guard bars), and each L (left) and R (right) are digits, each one represented by a seven-bit code. This is a total of 95 bits. The bit pattern for each numeral is designed to be as little like the others as possible, and to have no more than four consecutive 1s or 0s in order. Both are for reliability in scanning.
Since S, M, and E all include two bars, and each of the 12 digits of the UPC-A barcode consists of two bars and two spaces, all UPC-A barcodes consist of exactly (3 × 2) + (12 × 2) = 30 bars.
The UPC has only numerals, with no letters or other characters. The first digit L is the prefix. The last digit R is an error correcting check digit, allowing some errors in scanning or manual entry to be detected. UPC data structures are a component of GTINs (Global Trade Item Numbers). All of these data structures follow the global GS1 standards.

I'm using Symbol LS1004 with SirsiDynix Symphony 3.3.1 Workflows. How can I tab over after each scan, without having to hit &lt;Enter&gt;? Thanks, -john


Here is what I did to fix the problem of the bar-code scanner not going to next line after a successful scan. (Symbol ls4000i,This fix should work for other models as well)

1. Get the manual for your scanner or here is a link to the Symbol LS400i
https://docs.symbol.com/manuals/3789802a.pdf
You will want to print off few pages that have the proper bar-codes for programming.

2. I usually start with setting scanner to the Default Parameter, this should be in section 5-7,page 50 of the manual.PRINT IT
Warning! If you set scanner to default, you need to be aware of which bar-code types you use. (We use UPC-A) Also if you have it programed for other things already you may not want to set all settings to default. You can skip to step 4. If you do not wish to reset all values to default.

Now scan the Default bar-code.


3. Now program scanner to Enable your bar-code type. (For us Enable UPC-A bar-code is in section 5-22,page 66. PRINT IT

Now Scan the Enable (your bar-code type UPC-A, UPC-E,etc etc)

4.Next You need to set a Suffix Value. The scan Suffix bar-code is found in section 5-80, page 124. PRINT IT

Now Scan the Scan Suffix bar-code

This prepares the scanner for the code of the whatever Suffix you want to add.

5. The Suffix you want to add to fix this particular problem is ENTER. So that it goes to the next line. There is a prefix/suffix value chart on page 162 table A-4. The code for ENTER Is 7013. In order to enter this code you will need to print off the Numeric Bar Codes found in section 5-109,5-110,pages 153,154. PRINT IT

Now scan in 7013 one number at a time to program ENTER as the suffix.

6.Now you have to program the Scan Data Transmission Format found in section 5-81,5-82, pages 125,126 . PRINT IT
(This lets the scanner know to transmit the Suffix after the data.)

First scan the Scan Options Bar-code.
Second scan the <DATA><SUFFIX> bar-code.

Last scan the ENTER Bar-Code.

YOUR DONE !

Your scanner should be working now. Also look through the manual there are some nice functions that can be turned on and off with a simple bar code scan. Such as volume and tone of beep etc etc.

Hope this helps

I need to strip the last character from the barcode when scanned with a Symbol P370 scanner. Is there a procedure for that?


If the barcode is a UPC-A or UPC-E you would scan the Do Not Transmit UPC-A or UPC-E Check Digit barcode from the P370 Product Reference Guide.

If the barcode is something other than a UPC-A or UPC-E the last character can be stripped using Advanced Data Formatting which would require the use of 123Scan. You can download 123Scan from support.symbol.com.

The P370 is NOT supported by the newer 123Scan2.

you are probably reading to a inteligent software package like Excell, which sees the inputted data as a number (so ignores leading zeros) you need to specify to the sytem that the incoming numbers are TEXT not numbers.
