Scanning barcodes in 8.03.403D MES

It looks like the timing is now the problem. I tried a newer scanner
that let me slow down the input and it works fine. So, since I can't
get the older scanners to scan any slower, I guess I'll have to
replace them?

Thanks,

What is the proper format for a bar code if you want to include the
job number - assembly - operation.

Tab is the delimiter which is programmed as $I for our bar code
scanners.

Here is what were currently using, but it's stopping at the assembly
number:

"*" + REPLACE(TRIM({JOBASMBL.JOBNUM}),"*","") + "$I" +
REPLACE(TRIM({JobAsmbl.Calc_BCAsmSeq}),"*","") + "$I" +
REPLACE(TRIM({JobOper.Calc_BCOprSeq}),"*","") + "$I" + "*"

Here's mine:

"*" + Trim({OPENJOBS_VIEW.JobNum}) + "$I" +
trim(totext({JobAsmbl.AssemblySeq},0)) + "$I" +
trim(totext({JobOper.OprSeq},0)) + "$I" + "*"

My issues were resolved when I reprogramed the scanners. It took
quite a bit of trial and error but was able to get it to work.

Do note my custom view "OpenJobs_View" (JobHeader filtered for open
and released jobs at the Progress level) but you can substitute the
JobAsmbl.JobNum or JobHead.JobNum just as well.

Also, I don't understand the purpose of the replace function in your
formula? Do you have asterisks in your job numbers? It seems that
would be a major problem either way. What are the calculations you're
using for the Assembly Seq and the Operation Seq? Why would you have
asterisks in either of those that you need to replace?

Finally if you haven't already done so, I would recommend putting a
non-barcode font with the identical information in your report under
the bar code to make sure you are getting want (at least temporarily
until you get the bugs worked out).

Best of luck.

It's doing what it's suppose to do, i.e., tab after each field, but I
think there needs to be a delay after the job number? What ASCII
code do you use to delay the scanner after the job number?
