Data Format Editor Introduction
You may use the Data Format Editor to change the imager's output. For
example, you can use the Data Format Editor to insert characters at certain
points in barcode data as it is scanned. The selections in the following pages
are used only if you wish to alter the output. Default Data Format setting = None.
Normally, when you scan a barcode, it gets outputted automatically; however
when you do a format, you must use a "send" command (see
on page 5-2) within the format program to output data.
Multiple formats may be programmed into the imager. They are stacked in the
order in which they are entered. However, the following list presents the order
in which formats are applied:
1. Specific Term ID, Actual Code ID, Actual Length
2. Specific Term ID, Actual Code ID, Universal Length
3. Specific Term ID, Universal Code ID, Actual Length
4. Specific Term ID, Universal Code ID, Universal Length
5. Universal Term ID, Actual Code ID, Actual Length
6. Universal Term ID, Actual Code ID, Universal Length
7. Universal Term ID, Universal Code ID, Actual Length
8. Universal Term ID, Universal Code ID, Universal Length
If you have changed data format settings, and wish to clear all formats and return
to the factory defaults, scan the Default Data Format code on
