Clients may need the functionality of adding SAP B1 marketing document by just scanning the information from barcode. Consultants may think to develop addon to achieve this,but i am suggesting easy way to achieve that functionality thorugh FMS.

Follow the steps below:

1.Create UDF for that document.

2.Place cursor on that UDF and trigger the scanner on any barcode label which will fetch some digits.

3.These digits might have standard procedure for splitting information like itemcode,quantity etc.

4.write a query to split the information with the help of substring,left and right function.

5.write FMS query  for each information and apply it as automatic for specific fields.

6.This auto FMS should be based on the UDF(so whenever the UDF changes,this should change).

7.Now when you place cursor on udf and trigger the scanner,it will fetch other information automatically which will help you to Add.

After adding the all items,you can add document manually.

Note:some barcode scanner may have 'Enter' suffix which will try to add the document.So,you need to convert it to 'Tab' suffix in the barcode configuration.

You can find barcode configuration guide below for Motorolla:
