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.
