We use barcode scanners that have a quadrant of a 5250 screen in them.  We 
customized the 5250 screen to use just one quadrant to fit.  They scan an 
item and it fills in the field and autorecord advances, (or automatically 
hits enter).  The beauty of this is you get an immediate response if the 
item is invalid, etc.  Our i5 is hooked up to our lan.  Our lan has these 
wireless remote access devices scattered all over.  I can get more 
information upon request.

Sending barcode information in batch is the equivalent of ripping out all 
interactive capability and replacing it with keypunch devices.

RE: Data Transfer Tool

Rob, could you expand on how you use "wireless handheld devices to
communicate directly to our i5"?
