Check your bar code character sets. I see CR and LF in the Code 128
barcodes. If your using Code 3 of 9 or Code 39 you mat be out of luck.
That's a very restricted character set.

No - this goes directly into a WEB BROWSER SCREEN - actually using LANSA
FOR THE WEB 4GL (don't know what kind of RPG code is generated behind
the scenes). The scanner is simply usb connected, but works like a
keyboard wedge.

Are you scanning this into a subfile program, or do you using some other
method of getting the scanned data into your system?

This is totally internal - a Time and Attendance/Labor tracking program.
A Shop Packet is printed out with barcodes, and that is most of what
gets scanned.

Don,
Can you share a little more detail? Are you scanning outgoing products,
incoming products, or reports?
Are you using a scanner acting through a keyboard wedge, or a
stand-alone RF scanner, or something different?
What affect will adding this additional information to your barcode have
on others who have to scan it?

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
onto
the end of the actual printed barcode itself??
