    Hi John,

    Q: Which “reports” is this statement referring to?

    A: That statement is referring to any Business Central report. You can use the barcode generation procedures to add barcodes to any report you like.

     

    Q: Secondly, is it possible to switch from the use of 2-D or 1-D bar coding, for the same item, in case business partners have either code for the same item?

    A: Yes, all that matters is that the scanner can decode the type of barcode being used. WMS Express itself doesn’t know what type of barcode was scanned. The scanner decoding engine (Datalogic, Honeywell, Zebra etc.) decodes and parses the barcode, then sends the barcode contents to WMS Express as plain text. So all WMS Express cares about is the contents of the barcode, not the type (aka symbology) of the barcode. I’d encourage you to review the FAQ section towards the bottom of this page for more information (the page is for Warehouse Insight but the same logic applies in WMS Express): Warehouse Insight WMS for Business Central – Updated March 2023 (dmsiworks.com)

     

    Q: Or, if the scanners can indeed use QR (2-D) codes, do you need to be concerned about UPC (1-D) codes?

    A: As above, WMS Express doesn’t care about the type of barcode you scan. All that matters is that the scanner can decode it.
