Carriage returns/tabs only partially working

I've created code128 barcodes with carriage returns and tabs (using IDAutomation fonts). When I scan the barcode into notepad the tab and carriage return seem to work. If I scan into a cell in say Excel I don't get the control characters (just comes through as one line). Same goes when I try to use it for the intended purpose of loging into Windows (usernamepassword).

I'm not sure if this is a font issue or a scanner issue but since it seems to work in some applications I thought I'd start here...

Thanks,
Raymond

I used code128 font but my motorola symbol ls1203 is not reading when i print whats wrong?


Try downloading a proper software demo from www.nicelabel.cl and make a test. If it works, means that you are either using a really bad printer or that your scanner is having problems to read that symbology

How do I get my scanner to go to the next line/box when using Excel?


Hello,

In your programming manual there is a barcode scan that needs to be scanned in that adds the carriage return function. To do this you will first need to scan the barcode to put the unit into program mode, then scan the carriage return barcode, then scan the end programming code. Now when you scan a barcode the scanner will add the return to the sequence it sends to the computer. If you can't find your programming book you can download the sheets from the Symbol web site.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

LS4004 Scanner displaying 2 random digits on scan?


Hello coreyog. I think I can help you with at least part of this. The "suffixing with an enter" you're describing is called a Carriage Return. If you go to your manual, you'll be able to find the Carriage Return enable and disable barcodes. Disabling the Carriage Return should fix that part at least.

As far as the digits not found in the barcode, there are about a thousand and one reasons it could be doing this. Generally, I suggest to my clients that they use the manual to reset the defaults of the scanner while plugged in to the problematic machine, after resetting, unplug the scanner and plug it back in. This should get windows to re-discover the device, as it were. This takes care of it about 75% of the time. I hope I've at least helped you get a start on fixing your scanner foibles. Good luck!
