Question about Symbol LS2208 Handheld
SOURCE: setup issue
you need to use a code book to program the gun how to behave (and by what kind of interface it is using) I found this note please look http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=ADC-00084&sliceId=SAL_Public&dialogID=26700221&stateId=1%200%2026686911 you should have a book of barcodes to customise the configuration of gun to behave how you want it to. here is the electronic version http://support.symbol.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=5093002apdf&sliceId=&dialogID=26700221&stateId=1%200%2026686932

Most scanners will convert UPCA to EAN13 as you scan if you have that setting checked. A 0 will be added in front of the UPCA to make it an EAN13. Nothing else changes. You can read about this stuff on Wikipedia.

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
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.

All you have to do is create a rule to transmit only the 12 digits you want.
You can create a rule with the Programming manual or the 123scan software.
Both of these are available online at support.symbol.com. Here is a short cut:
