An IBM Datacap Taskmaster solution needs to read a single 3 of 9 barcode off of a form. Occasionally an incorrect value is returned. In one instance, the form had 452843 in a 3 of 9 format, but the barcode read as R2GUYZ. There appears to be only one barcode on the page. How would you go about solving the problem?
A. Set up the barcode engine to read only 3 of 9 barcodes.
B. Set up the barcode engine to read numeric characters only.
C. Check your imagefix. It may be removing lines from the barcode. Adjust as necessary.
D. The barcode read upside down. Check the image orientation and use autorotate to correct the problem.
It’s possible the engine is reading the 3 of 9 as a Code 128, which while it may look somewhat similar, might yield a different value completely. Constraining the engine to only look for 3 of 9 gets around this.
