    Chapter 14 Advanced Data Formatting Introduction Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) is a means of customizing data before transmission to the host device. Scan data can be edited to suit particular requirements. To implement ADF, scan a related series of bar codes, which begin on page 14-8, which allows programming the scanner with Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) Rules.
