Shot in the dark here. Does anyone know what font a HECI barcode uses? I have a scanner that can read serial numbers and partnumbers fine, but won't convert a HECI barcode for me. Anyone?

    HECI is Human-interface Equipment Catalog Item or Identifier or CLEI. You will need to teach or program then it will convert for you. Refer to manual of scanner and printer.

    I'd like to be able to teach or programit, but the problem is I can't find any type of conversion table or what barcode font a HECI tag uses. the newer CLEI tags read fine but the older HECI tags won't. I can't even find a scanner that says they read them.

    Normally, the procedure is in printer manual. You need to look for it, then program the convertion setup (used to be scanning). Let me know your printer name.

    I guess I didn't explain my question correctly. We get in parts with the HECI barcodes on them already. I'm trying to find a barcode scanner that will read the barcode. The scanner I have will not read them correctly but the company says if I can find the font used they can install it for me.
