Just wondered how others handle items that have no barcode. Have you made up barcodes? Is there a formula to do this so we don't end up with two items having the same barcode? We are using the system for the first time this year and just want to benefit from your experience and suggestions.

Thanks, Kathy

You could print your own barcodes. No formula, just use a smaller number of digits, e.g. 4 digits, so it won't conflict with a UPC code.

Or if it's just a few things like ice or wood, take a bar code from something you don't sell (e.g. a hard disk drive) and put it on a piece of cardboard you can scan it from.
