This document will show you how to program your Motorola Symbol LS scanner to read barcodes the way they are formatted in your Corner Store POS. Please note- this programming guide is only intended for use with the RetailOps application. Please contact the manufacturer for standard. Bar codes are provided for complex programming or interface changes. ADD AN ENTER KEY (CARRIAGE RETURN/LINE FEED). To add an ENTER key after.

I was able to get it working and programmed it so that it would issue a tab after each scan and they have started to use it for some simple inventory work. I would like to program it to make it more user friendly for some more complicated jobs.
I have the manual, and have installed Scan2. The trouble that I am having is getting used to the language associated with scanners. I would like to see some examples of the scan codes used for various tasks. Here is one of the tasks I would like to program: It is programing to get the tab to result after every scan, but how do I get the Enter Return to occur? Is it possible to generate a barcode that will force the cursor to move down and then back to the left?
I already have the appropriate font for generating barcodes out of the printer and they work.
FAQ# 1103: What is the difference between the LS2208 and LI2208 barcode scanners?
Any help is appreciated. I am not sure how or where you are trying to make this all occur. Typically the barcode reader a.
It reads and decodes the barcodes and makes that data available to an application e. Also, in general, this data input ‘appears’ to the application exactly the same as if a user had manually typed it in via a keyboard – despite it having entered the computer via an alternative means e. USB port, keyboard wedge, etc.
Then it would be up to the computer application to work with the data and anything else within the application such as cursor movement, etc.

This has nothing to do with the barcode reader a. Anything else should be addressed within the application. JRB, Thank you for your quick response. I understood all that you wrote, and perhaps a some point I will write an Access database to take programmong input and manipulate it.
But that is not what my question is. Assume that the scanner is attached and Excel is open. Would it be possible to create a bar-code, that when scanned would move the cursor down programing row? Most readers terminate their barcode data bytes with some character so as to delineate one ‘read’ from another. It would be rare progrwmming it not to do so. I guess that my own starting point would be to determine exactly what the reader DOES terminate the barcode read data transmission with.
Then, by knowing that, I could most likely get things working from that point.
I will leave that to you. Or you can contact Symbol’s Support team to ask. As a last resort you can: Repeat as necessary Not an ideal situation, but if you are in a hurry to get something done, it could work.
I have spent a great deal of time trying to find some place to research this simple question but can’t find a web site that is appropriate.
I joined tek-tips hoping someone here would have a suggestion. Assume the cursor is in cell A1 in Excel and there is no data in cell A1. Is it possible to generate a bar-code that, when scanned, will not deliver any data to A1 but will move the cursor down to A2? If you want that behavior, you will need to develop your own application to handle the data from the reader in the unique manner you describe.
However if you want to continue to search for other assistance From whom did you purchase the barcode reader? In the past I have found many times that the vendor will have a support staff which can be very helpful.
Or you should be able to find support at: Command Keys via Barcode Since in that posting you say that you think that you are looking for the same information, then my reply there would apply to you as well. If you were going to proogramming barcodes to act as ‘keystrokes’ as you suggest might work for you in the other posting: Generally an individual would read the ‘ENTER’ barcode to move your user’s cursor, and then separately read the ‘REAL’ barcode containing the desired information so that info could enter the desired Excel cell.
But if there was ever a situation where you did NOT want the ‘keystroke’ barcode to be included, having them printed into one single barcode would prevent you from separating the ‘REAL’ data out.
