    All test and even logs showed that the bar code was fine. It was ten characters long and the field was set to accept 10 characters. There were no field separators or groups separators either in the bar code. that could be noted.

    Try changing the Oversize Scanning option to "Split" or "Truncated" on the 5250 portion of the Emulation Parameters menu, under Common.
