    p_manage_50 generates 3-digit barcode

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    The barcode produced by p_manage_50 is only 3 digits. Is there any way to have the barcode look like a regular system-generated barcode?

    As noted in KB 8192-10711: " p_manage_50 grabs the next "sequence" number for "last-barcode-number" from the Z52 table. There does not appear to be any configuration option for changing how it generates barcodes. "

    I see this in the abc50 util g/2:

    4. last-barcode-number 499 y S

    You could change this last-barcode-number to a higher/longer value -- as long as the potential numbers don't conflict with existing barcodes.
