Barcode Scanning

Postby prat61 » Mon Apr 19, 2010 10:36 am

I am having the some major issues with indexing barcodes. Example: I am using barcode 128 and I am indexing the foolowing fields.

Title:
Contract Number:
CSJ Number:
Total Value:
Payments:
Document Date:

When I use the built in utility VCDEMO I test my barcodes and everything is read. I go and set up my zones and everything is populates except for the date field. Why would I get 100% on my zones and when I test the batch it does not get read. Has anyone seen this before or do I need to configure something?

Bar code is fine. How did you draw your zones (or do you use page level bar code recognition)? Do you have enough quiet zone included around the code?

I drew my zones leaving enough room for shifting. What is a quiet zone?

Quiet zones are required by bar code specifications. You need to include a healthy amount of space before AND after the bars (no need for them above and below). Draw your zones wider so that you have about 2 cm of extra space on both left and right sides. Itás not a problem if printed data gets included. The bar code reader engine will ignore that.

If only the date field is not working, then I suspect a format issue such that the text from the barcode is being rejected by the date field.
