MC92N0 - skip first character

Good morning,

 

could you help me please how can I set up my device to skip (ignore) first character? I have following barcode: P225459, I need to scan only 225459, so without "P". I tried to find this setting in DataWedge  v3.7 but unfortunately without succes. There is only prefix, sufix...

 

Is here someone who can help me?

 

Thank you in advance?

David

Advanced Configuration

Select Profile0 or whatever profile you are using.

Routes

Route0

Process

Advanced Data Format

Make sure enabled is checked, then Rules

Rule0

Actions

Add new

Skip Ahead

You will then see 2 rules, Send Remaining and Skip ahead.  You want the Skip Ahead to be first,  so select skip ahead

Make sure "How Many" is set to 1, then select "Move", then "Up"

You should now see 2 rules , Skip Ahead and Send Remaining.

That should do it.  Keep hitting Zero until you are all the way backed out and DW saves the config.

Thanks for this. Do you know

Thanks for this. Do you know if there is a way to have the Devices skip the first character on some labels, but read the entire label on others. For instance, all my new labels have TRF on them, but my system on recognize the RF so I programed the handhelf scanner to skip the first character.

Well my legacy labels start with C and I need the C to show up so I can't skip the first character on these labels. Is there a way to allow my legacy labels to go through, while omitting the T on my new labels.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Hi, yes that should

Hi, yes that should definitely be possible.  Please take a look at the Advanced Data Formatting for DataWedge:   Advanced Data Formatting - Zebra Technologies TechDocs  You would need a rule to detect the content of the first character(s) of the string.
