Hi welcome to JustAnswer

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I don't mind you connect my device, but this is about scanning barcode from retail item. There are few items has 12 digit bar code and few have only 7 digit. I have 2 different barcode scanner (one USB and one standalone wireless like inventory data collector) both can not scan 7 digit barcode and both can scan 12 digit one. As per my inventory (Pos) program my entire data base of inventory is with (almost 2500 records ) 10 digit barcodes. So my requirement is whenever I scan any item, scanner should convert any barcode into 10 digit barcode, no matter how many digit barcode is on item
