    123Scan - How do I add extended ASCII characters to barcode data

    Andrew Pengelly

      In 123Scan there is the option to foramt data by adding characters to the end of the data - e.g add <ENTER> or <TAB>.  However the choice of characters you can add is limited to those offered in the pull down menus.  I may be wrong but the choice appears to be limited to 128 ASCII characters, some <ALT><?> combos and a few others.

       

      I am specifically interested in being able to append <CTRL><TAB> combination which is used within Excel cells and Word tables to add a TAB within a cell.

      I beleive this is ASCII code 148.  So a couple of questions .

       

      1.  Who else is interested in getting this key combination added to 123Scan?

      2.  Should it offer support for adding any 8 bit ASCII character code?
