    Function keys cannot be used for a scan handler.



    You can use a key macro to swap the function key with a non-typical special character.



    Here we need to use the F7 key in a scan handler.  We will prepend any symbology with an exclamation point that we will use a key macro to swap for the F7 key.


    Scan handler:



    Any symbology, any length, prepend, !


    Key macro:



    Swaps the exclamation point with the F7 key


    Now the F7 key is prepended to any barcode that is scanned.
