Thanks!  That did the trick.

I simply added a works station entry for QINTER for SCAN* and set it
for *ENTER.

I left everything else alone, including QINTER's workstation type entry
of *ALL.  I reset the device 10 times, and every time it has come up in
the SCANNER subsystem.  Before it was 50/50 or so.

I guess a Workstation entry with *ENTER is effectively an *OMIT for signon.

To answer your question: we are using Symbol 6842 scanners which we got last
May.  Their screens look to be 21 characters across by 16 lines down.  They
seem to work well.

we also have scanners as 5250 devices and have an interactive subsystem for
them. here's what to do...

- add a workstation entry to subsystem qinter for workstation name SCAN*,
an allocation at *ENTER
- add a workstation entry to subsystem scanner for workstation name SCAN*
an allocation at *SIGNON
- remove any workstation entries you made refering to device type.

this did the trick for us.

which scanner are you using? we have intermec 2425's, but we're looking for
alternative that has a bigger screen.
