AS400 printing issue
We can print USER ID Bar Codes but the Field you Enter the User ID in is only 9 Positions. The USer ID itself can be up to 10 Positions. Does anyone know of a 3rd party software that I can use to print the USER ID at 10 positions? I was told it can not be a 10 Position Field because of the AS400 and the RETURN when using Scanners....?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Now we have a picture of what you are trying to do.
Since you scanners are configured to transmit a field exit after the bar code, I don’t see how you can easily use the bar code with a 10 digit User ID on the standard login screen.

    Not a limit of the AS/400 - a limit of the program you are using. Can that program be modified?

    because scanning adds a field exit to the end of the scan, so if the Print USER ID Field were 10 and they scanned it for user id, it would skip past the password field. is the reason for it.

    Use CHECK(FE) on the User ID field in the display file DDS. This requires a field exit to advance to the next field even if ten characters are entered.
