Barcodes & UPC Codes
To add barcodes into the overall system, use the Warehouse Handheld's Scan/Learn Barcodes. When the handheld scans and learns a barcode, during a full sync, this barcode is then saved into the backend system in the scanned item's product records. The barcode numerals may be viewed in the backend by going to Records>Product>Records and clicking the command button Barcodes. Sometimes, the barcodes contain the same numbers as the product's UPC codes.
Note: Occasionally different size containers (alt-packs, primary packs, etc) will have different UPC codes and barcodes.
During a full sync, barcodes are uploaded onto the mobile devices. Occasionally, these barcodes are printed onto the delivery handheld invoices. If not applicable, then the system will print any available UPC code onto the invoices. To print barcodes on invoices, use the drop down arrow to select an invoice format for the mobile devices on the Configure Database Handheld Panel.
Scansheets are used to quickly scan in barcodes.
