extra numbers are added to EAN/UPC code

When UPC code is scanned extra number "2" is added to the UPC number. Please contribute if anyone knows the reason

    Hi Sudip,

    Barcode scanners have internal programming logic and they need some settings as well before using them.

    Please refer to the below link of Fujitsu

    http://www.fel.fujitsu.com/support/scanner/manuals/6x40/User/contents/EN/03/c03_17_01.htm

    If you are using a different scanner,refer to the scanner operator's guide before using them.

    Hope it helps

    Best Regards,

    Aram K.

    Hello,

    The extra digit added could be the check digit.

    Please see the link [http://www.gs1.org/barcodes/support/check_digit_calculator]

    Thanks,

    Venu
