Varieties and Barcodes

As the Item register will only contain one record for an Item with Varieties, it is only possible to enter one Barcode for such an Item. If you need separate Barcodes for each Variety, use the Barcodes setting in the Stock module. As with the Barcode in the Item record, you can enter a Barcode from this setting instead of an Item Number whenever you need to use a Variety (in Orders or Invoices, for example).

To define a new Barcode, first move into the Stock module using the [Switch Module] button in the Navigation Centre. Then, if you are using Windows or Mac OS X, click the [Settings] button that's also in the Navigation Centre and double-click 'Barcodes' in the resulting list. If you are using iOS or Android, select 'Settings' from the Tools menu (with 'wrench' icon) and tap 'Barcodes' in the 'Settings' list. The 'Barcodes: Browse' window will appear. You can add a new record by selecting 'New' from the Create menu (Windows/Mac OS X) or the + menu (iOS/Android). When the record is complete, save it by clicking the [Save] button (Windows/Mac OS X) or tapping √ (iOS/Android) in the Button Bar. To close it without saving changes, click the close box (Windows/Mac OS X) or tap < (iOS/Android).

Enter the Barcode of the Variety here. You can only enter one record for a particular Barcode.

If you need to ensure that each Barcode contains at least a certain number of characters, enter this number in the Barcode Length field in the
