The first and last characters of the barcode, which are A, B, C, or D, are included by default when the barcode data is transmitted.

To remove the first and last character, the Enable NOTIS editing programming barcode must be scanned.
To program the scanner to strip off alpha characters of A, B, C, or D from the beginning or end of a Codabar barcode, the Enable Notice Editing programming barcode must be scanned.
