Data string editing

would like to set Symbol scanners to populate the field with the string scanned in a right to left fashion

 

Eg:-

a)      Scanner scans the string 123456789 into a field of 6 char is 456789

b)      Scanner scans the string 987654321 into a field of 2 char is 21

c) Scanner scans the string 654789123 into a field of 100 char is 654789123

 

BaBarcode length is not fixed and capture field is not fixed

Using the 123 Scan

Using the 123 Scan Configuration utility I believe an ADF can be created that will achieve this.

  1. Select a code length of 9
  2. String at position = 4
  3. Actions
    1. Send Extended Key <ENTER>
    2. Send All that remains.

I have not tested but I think that will take care of your first scenario.  The same method should work for the second scenario as well, just change the String at position to equal 8.  I may be off a digit on this too.  I am a beginner.  I also don't know how to combine the rules.

Hi Adam,So far, I don't see

Hi Adam,

So far, I don't see any rule in 123scan2 that fits your need.

Btw, even if the scanner able to display last data 1st, the result will be as below:

a)  Scanner scans the string 123456789 into a field of 6 char is 987654

b) Scanner scans the string 987654321 into a field of 2 char is 12

c) Scanner scans the string 654789123 into a field of 100 char is  321987456 

For your requirement, I would recommend as below:

1)If you able to modify barcode, please do print the barcode data with your desire data 1st.

eg. the barcode string should be 987654321.

Then the field with 2 char, will have 98 left.

2)Rearrange the data in application programming logic.

Accepting the scan input from scanner, then rearrange in application programming logic.

Hope this helps.

Tsu Beng.
