Scan data can be edited to suit particular requirements. ADF can be implemented through scanning a related series of bar codes, which begin on page 12-8, or by installing the 123Scan utility (see Chapter 9, 123 Scan) which allows the digital scanner to be setup and programmed with Advanced Data Formatting (ADF) Rules.
