You need to use an advanced

You need to use an advanced data formatting rule (ADF) - see below:

                There is no explicit setting for disabling the check digit, but you can configure DataWedge to only send the first 7 and 12 digits for EAN8 and EAN13 respectively.

  1. Open DataWedge
  2. Advanced Configuration
  3. Profiles
  4. Profile0
  5. Routes
  6. Route0
  7. Process
  8. Advanced (ADF)
  9. Enabled (To Check)
  10. Rules
  11. Add New
    1. Enter “EAN13”
    2. Save
    3. Move
    4. Move Up
    5. Tap the EAN13 rule (should be at the top of the list)
    6. Criteria
    7. Devices
    8. If you have more than 1 scanning device:
      1. Tap to uncheck “All”
      2. For all other devices besides the one you are scanning with (eg: the camera if you are scanning with 2d blockbuster imager):
        1. tap the name
        2. tap included (to uncheck)
        3. back
    9. Tap the scanning device you are scanning with
    10. Ensure “Included” is checked
    11. Decoders
    12. All (to uncheck)
    13. EAN13 (to check)
    14. Back
