barcode code128 format

on 9/9/13, 10:14 AM 4,484 views

Does anybody know which format will suite strings such as "SO012-1-1/2". I heard that code128 barcode format is good. But, there are some problems when the scanner scans the barcodes such as "SO012-1-11/12". Scanner does not detect this barcode at all.

The last two numbers are in 2 digits. Let me know if I have any other better formats that have not restriction beyond some limit.

Hello !

Actually, OpenERP only supports EAN13 for barcode.
If you want to support other barcode, then you have to remove this restriction by some customization in existing code.


There are also scanner guns that convert the barcode you have on your products to EAN13 in order to retrieve the correct product in OpenERP. If you have such scanners, it is actually much easier to configure them than to do custom developments in OpenERP.
