Frequently Asked Questions

What barcoding language is utilized in the 1D barcode?

  • The 1D barcodes appearing on the Digi-Key pack list are in the standard Barcode Language Code 128.

When I scan the 2D barcode, the fields populate appropriately. When I scan the 1D barcode, it only enters the data in the field I’m currently in.

  • The 2D barcode is set up to include data identifiers that help identify what piece of information is associated with what field as all fields are inputted with a single scan. The 1D barcode only contains the bit of information for the particular field you are scanning at the time.

When I scan the 2D barcode, there are additional characters in front of each field.

  • These additional characters are the data identifiers used to identify what each line of data is. If it is appearing when you scan, you may need to adjust your software to not display there.

Is every 2D barcode on the page displaying the same information?

  • No. Currently, every page of the pack slip will have a 2D barcode displayed near the pack slip number. This 2D barcode will provide the Invoice Number, the PO Number, and the Pack slip number. The 2D barcode found on each line item will contain the manufacturer’s part number, customer part number, and the quantity.
