It depends what your overall goal is. What are you trying to achieve with this?
Parts are coming into our business from different suppliers one thing they regularly have in common is P12345678 at some point in their barcode. We are currently creating lots of different scan handlers for different areas of the business if we could just be able to have a blanket rules.
Any barcode, search for character P, strip next 8 characters, so example it would broadcast 12345678. This would simplify our support of these rules.
I've currently created 8 rules if P is in position 15 read position 16 and 8 characters on
then a new rule if P is in position 16 read position read position 17 and 8 characters on
and so forth to cover from position 15 to 22
I would like to simplify it further with rule just P anywhere strip next 8 characters.
You can do this with a scan handler however a script would be better suited to handle this type of functionality..If you are unable to create such a script, please contact your Wavelink sales rep and they should be able to point you in the right direction.
