Thank you Steve. I know what you mean, and we have tried each of those
methods. It just seems to me like the easiest way would be to put
everything you need into the printed barcode, then you can leave all of
the scanners in their "default/generic" settings ....

I have Barcode400 software, but for this application I am just using RPG
and the BARCODE DDS keyword. I imagine I could do this easily using
that Barcode software.

Many of the bar code scanners, can be programmed to perform macros after
scanning a certain barcode. For our shipping application we have a
couple of large barcodes taped to the wall. The shipping clerk scans the
items in the order, and after scanning the last item in the order, she
scans the bar codes on the wall to signal the end of the shipment.

Options of the DDS BARCODE command

Does anyone know 'if can or how to' do this??

Is it possible to create a barcode with embedded cursor controls - using

DDS BARCODE? For example, have a Tab, and Enter - hidden and tacked
the end of the actual printed barcode itself??
