In Oracle Retail Warehouse Management System (RWMS), if you try to scan a GS1 (CODE128) barcode on the Hand Held Tool (HHT) Item Inquiry screen you receive an error.   It should be possible to scan any CODE128 barcode without setup (as is possible for FPR receiving).  Why does this screen note use the same logic as the FPR receiving screens for items?

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a GS1 Barcode for an existing item.
2. Try to scan it in the HHT item inquiry screen.
