Editing a stock item

Barcodes

If the stock item you are entering does not come with a barcode, then you can automatically generate one by clicking on the empty barcode field and pressing ENTER.

Once you have a barcode, clicking the barcode button takes you to the barcode dialog, where you may print out a page full of this barcode. Stick the new barcode to your stock item for sale and you are done!

The default barcode generation type is I25. I25 requires a barcode with an even number of digits. If you have an odd number of digits, the barcode is prefixed with a “0”.

So for example, 998 becomes 0998

Due to this restriction, Mandala views 998 and 0998 as the same barcode. Most likely, you will never need to worry about this though.
