Question

Can a Character Be Removed From the Middle of a Bar Code Using a Wavelink Scan Handler?

Facts

When using a Scan Handler, data can only be removed from either the beginning or end of the barcode. It cannot be removed from the middle of the barcode.

Answer

The Scan Handler commands provide special processing of scanned data.  Commands are available to replace selected text within the barcode, append or prepend data to the barcode, or to translate data within the barcode.
The commands can be targeted to only certain barcodes by specifying the Symbology and/or barcode length information.  Any number of Scan Handlers can be defined as needed by having additional scan handlers immediately follow the preceding one.
A Wavelink Script may be written to do this.
