When Scanning UPC-E Barcodes, Wavelink Removes the Check Digit. How to Enable Wavelink to Accept the Check Digit? (Doc ID 2041189.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 15, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Store Inventory Management - Version 14.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In the Store Inventory Management (SIM) application, we find that when UPC-E barcode processing is turned on, an UPC-A item can be looked up using its UPC-E barcode in SIM PC UI item lookup.  However, when using the handheld (HH) terminal UI to lookup the item using its UPC-E code, the application shows an "Invalid Item" error.

This issue occurs because Wavelink scan configuration was ignoring the UPC-E check digits during the scan.  To enable UPC0E scanning using the HH, please change the Wavelink configuration as shown below.
