creating RF program and barcode scan problem


I have a problem with creating a RF program.

Does anyone know about barcode scanning and automatically enter in the RF program?

In our program, we fill input fields with barcode scanning and

after scanning ,execute enter automatically so that user don't need to push buttons for enter.

We already set automatic enter in RF device, but it doesn't work in our RF program and standard WM transactions.

When we execute same program on Desktop computer with I.E 6, the program works automatically after scanning.

Is it impossible to execute automatically after scanning with RF device? Or is there any special consideration ?

best regards,

    Hi Wakako,

    we had similiar requirement and programmed scanners to send 'enter' (or any other key). But to be able to create bookings (or confirmations...), we had to use own transactions, which start immediately after entering the number and pressing enter.

    Normal SAP-transactions expect much more input (more values), before you can press save - so normal WM was no help.

    As long as our scanners entered only a number (according to the scanned barcode) and a function key (like 'enter'), behavior of our transactions was quite easy to test. Just typing some numbers and pressing enter... and if your program doesn't work in correct ways: debugging!

    Hello Wakako,

    I do have a similar problem with the cursor control on a RF device. I do have this logic built in SAP and everything works well even when entering the input fields manually on the RF device. However, things change when scanning the required information.

    The problem we have here is with the "auto-enter" configuration on the RF device. We use the Symbol PDT 6842 devices, purchased old, with no waranty, software or manuals. Could you please guide me on the right direction and tell me how could I configure the "auto-enter" on a Symbol device?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Best regards,

      Damn this is an old thread. I am running into very similar issues. If anyone is still checking this thread I am wondering if they were able to get the issue resolved. Was it an issue with the scanner, or a problem with the [barcode software|] or elsewhere. I did follow the link that Sanjay posted but it did not help me to resolve the issue. Thanks for any follow ups 😊

    Hi guys,

    Auto enter need to set in the RF gun end and also in the bar code.

    When we create a barcode in SAP or in other tool, depending upon the barcode family end of our field value one symbol will be added. so that RF gun will understand that symbol as enter event.

    No need to worry about the auto enter development in SAP 😉 unless you creating a custom barcode in SAP.

    In my previous project, we developed the barcodes using bartender software for code 39 barcodes.

    it adds a # symbol to the value that we are using for the barcode and in rf gun it recognizes as a enter event. so auto enter will be trigger at rf gun end.


    MATNR value MAT1234

    barcode value will come like MAT1234#

    this # symbol we don't need to pass while creating the barcode we need select the option for auto confirmation/enter


    In ITS Mobile, you need to check the parameters that you are passing to the ITS service. please provide a screen shot to understand better
