Setting Up a Barcode Interface

The FS Barcode Mapping view on the Service Administration screen sets the destinations for barcode data. Based on these mappings, barcode data is copied to specific views, tabs, and fields. The data may create a new record or update an existing record. When mapping barcode data to fields, you add a record for each field that is to receive data from a barcode.

NOTE:  Your Siebel application comes with a complete series of barcode mappings. You do not have to add or change any mappings unless you want to configure custom mappings.

To set the destinations for barcode data in specific views, tabs, and fields, use the procedure that follows.
