How to use Random Weight (Price Embedded) EAN/UPC Barcodes in Store
Operations

Resolution

1. Price-Embedded (commonly called Random Weight) Barcodes are enabled from
the Manager in the configuration section. There are two options, 'Use Random
Weight UPC' and 'Utilize Random Weight EAN'. You need to decide which format
will be used and select one.

2. Create an Item (standard type) and place the Per Unit Cost (per kilo,
gram, pound. ounces) and the Per Unit Price in the Cost and Price fields
respectively.

3. When an Item is scanned or entered and its Item Lookup Code meets the
specified format, Store Operations will automatically compute the Weight
based on the Price embedded in the Label and the Item Price (Per Unit Price)
in the database.

The definitions of the two formats are:

Random Weight UPCs allow for 12 digits, 4 of which consist of the Price
(Items up to $99.99).

Format: 2xxxxxayyyyc

where
2 = Random Weight UPC Code Indicator
x = Item Lookup Code Prefix. The Item Lookup Code is this prefix, followed
by 00000 (actual Lookup Code = 2xxxxx00000)
a = Secondary Check Digit
y = Price of Item / 100
c = Check Digit (ignored, may or may not exist)

The entire code has 11 characters.

Example:

1. Set up an Item with an Item Lookup Code of 25772600000. Generally, the
UPC Barcode Format is used for these Items.

2. Print a Label with the Code 25772601256 (according to the format, this
should be a $12.56 Item).

3. When Item Lookup Code 25772601256 is scanned at the POS, the Item
25772600000 will appear and a Price of $12.56 will be automatically entered
on the screen.

Random Weight UPCs allow for 13 digits, 5 of which consist of the price
(Items up to $999.99).

Format: 20xxxxxyyyyyc or 02xxxxxyyyyyc

where

20 or 02 = Random Weight UPC Code Indicator
x = Item Lookup Code Prefix. The Item Lookup Code includes this prefix,
followed by 00000 (actual Lookup Code = 2xxxxx00000 or 02xxxxx00000)
y = Price of Item / 100
c = Check Digit (ignored, may or may not exist)

The entire code has 13 characters.

Example:

1. Set up an Item with an Item Lookup Code of 2057720000000. Generally, the
EAN 13 Barcode Format is used for these Items.

2. Print a Label with the Code 2057720112568 (according to the format, this
should be a $112.56 Item).

3. When Item Lookup Code 2057720112568 is scanned at the POS, the Item
205772000000 will appear and a Price of $112.56 will be automatically entered
on the screen.

Hello Guys,
Sorry, I didn't mean to upset anyone.

The way I see it, this information should be in the manual. The poor guys
already paid a pretty penny for the software. Why should he have to pay for
proper documentation. Look at the contents of the article and ask yourself
honestly why this type of information should be included in the price of the
software.

I just felt a little compassion; I know the pain of working with poorly
documented software.
