Plant Floor Data Entry (6.0.525)

For anybody interested in this barcoding solution,
1.Set your scanner to use extended ASCII Code39 (thanks Aaron)
2.Create a formula field on the job traveller using formula....
"*" + trim({jobhead.JOBNUM} + "$I" + trim(totext({jobasmbl.ASMSEQ})) + "$I"
+ trim(totext({JOBOPER.OPRSEQ}))) + "*"
and output using the Code39 font
3.When you scan this code in Start Production Activity, the 3 separate
elements are placed into the job number, Assembly number & OpSeq fields

Thanks Aaron & Lily for your responses

I do not know about Wasp CCD Scanner, but for most of Symbol
scanners, there is a nice tool called Advanced Data Formatting rule
that can be used to modify bar code data before sending it to the
scanner. In your case, you can write some ADF rules to separate the
three fields and send each of them in the right place.

Hope it helps.

We're finally moving to Shop Floor Data Capture.
We've bar coded Employees, Job Travellers etc etc.
We're using a Wasp CCD Scanner and individual reads are great.
Here's the question.
Is there a way of getting Vantage to interpret a combined/concatenated code?
We'd like the operators to scan a single code to Start Production Activity.
The code will be a concatenation of Job, Assembly and OpSeq rather than 3
separate entries.
I know that $I equates to TAB and have constructed a code which reads
*123456$I0$I10* where 123456 is the job, 0 the Assembly and 10 the OpSeq.
The problem is that Vantage reads the entire value into the Job Number field
rather than separating into its 3 constituent parts.
Am I asking the impossible or am I missing something obvious?
As always, all help gratefully received
Regards,
Richard

Richard,
The answer is in the barcode reader. You need to enable the "extended code
39" barcode. The reader does the translation.
Good luck,
