Introduction

Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) is a means of customizing data before transmission to your host device. Scan data can be edited to
suit your particular requirements.
ADF can be implemented by scanning a related series of bar codes, which begin on page 14-7, or by installing the 123Scan utility (see
Chapter 12,
123Scan) which allows the scanner to be set up and programmed with Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) Rules.
If you are using the Wand interface with your scanner, you will not be able to use ADF rules to format your data.
Note

Rules: Criteria Linked to Actions

In ADF, data is customized through rules. These rules perform detailed actions when the data meets certain criteria. One rule may
consist of single or multiple criteria applied to single or multiple actions.
For instance, a data formatting rule could be the following:
Criteria:
When scan data is Code 39, length 12, and data at the start position is
the string "129",
Actions:
pad all sends with zeros to length 8,
send all data up to X,
send a space.
If a Code 39 bar code of 1299X1559828 is scanned, the following is transmitted: 00001299<space>. If a Code 39 bar code of
1299X15598 is scanned, this rule is ignored because the length criteria has not been met.
The rule specifies the editing conditions and requirements before data transmission occurs.

Using ADF Bar Codes

When you program a rule, make sure the rule is logically correct. Plan ahead before you start scanning.
To program each data formatting rule:
• Start the Rule. Scan the
• Criteria. Scan the bar codes for all pertinent criteria. Criteria can include code type (e.g., Code 128), code length, or data
that contains a specific character string (e.g., the digits "129"). These options are described in
• Actions. Scan all actions related to, or affecting, these criteria. The actions of a rule specify how to format the data for
transmission. These options are described in
• Save the Rule. Scan the
• If you make errors during this process, some special-purpose bar codes may be useful:

Criteria, actions, and entire rules may be erased by scanning the appropriate bar code (see bar codes beginning on page 14-10).
