Use unique barcodes already on equipment
If Equipment already has a unique barcode (e.g., asset or serial number), that number can be entered into its equipment record and used to locate and open its record. Make sure that this barcode is only used once per equipment record because there is no way for Calibration Control to differentiate two equipment records with the same barcode number.
Custom Barcode Field
Open an Equipment record and select the Other tab (far right). Enter the unique custom barcode in the custom Barcode field. The most accurate way of entering the custom barcode is to place the cursor in the custom Barcode field and scan the barcode into the field.
Barcode Scan Dialog
Close the Equipment dialog, returning to the Main Browse grid. Press the [F3] button to bring up the following small dialog. When this dialog (below) is visible and a barcode is scanned, Calibration Control will know to look in the custom barcode field in addition to the default field.
