Fixing the Bad Barcode Error Message

November 30, 2016

A bad barcode error message is displayed when the Strict Barcode check box at bottom of the screen has been selected. This checkbox is found on the Check In screen, Item Status screen , and In House Circulation screen.

When this checkbox is selected Evergreen is expecting only 14 digit Codabar barcodes and alerts you every time a different format is scanned. Un-check the Strict Barcode box on affected screens on affected computers to resolve the error.
