This document explains Barcode scanning and detection of EAN to different fields, e.g. Item Number, Batch Serial, Expiry Date.

Detail Steps

Example of GS1 barcode:
(01) 14546951400269 (17) 220300 (10) K170051200
Setup is done in EAN128Config.xml file
With the above example, there are 3 parts to the GS1 barcode:
  1. Brackets (01)
  2. Brackets (17)
  3. Brackets (10)   

Each part (bracket) refers to the different Application IDs in EAN128Config.xml

Each part has it's min and max digit length (example as below)
Setup EAN128Config.xml as per customer's barcode specification.
Need to use barcode scanner for the system to detect and break down the fields (it needs to go through the scanning engine). Cannot manually type in the numbers.
