No not really....

The hex code the barcode scanner sends doesn't make it to the field. Instead, it is intercepted and
handled by the terminal or terminal emulation software.

Still not sure exactly what're trying to accomplish...

Do you have a scanner?
Is it set to auto-enter after a scan?

If the answer to both is yes, what more are you trying to do?

In any even, as far as the hex codes used by the scanner:

I want it to work like a barcode scan.
One input field, variable length data.
There must be some hex code you can add to make it auto enter.
I am using a data que and can't get the subfile to work.
When I receive an entry from the data que, I would like to concatenate the
enter field so it auto enters.
Again, barcode scanners do this, it must be able to be done.

Thanks,

Craig

Use the DDS keyword CHECK(ER) on the last field in the display. When
the user types anything into the last position of the field, it will be
sent just as if the user had pressed the enter key.

Barcode readers can usually be configured to auto enter a scan.
How do they do it?

TIA,
