    Convert barcode to manufacturer part number

    ryan4volts

      Hi All,

       

      I hope this group is still semi-active.

       

      I know other distributors like Digikey have this functionality, but I was hoping to find a way to convert the barcode on my element14 packet to an actual order then finally a product. This would greatly help me automate my stock take process and adding new items into our system upon delivery.

       

      As it stands a couple examples of the bar codes are as follows:

      BarCode "AU1000770216005", OrderNum "142043102" (clone for 1420431), line number 5 (assuming on order), Quantity 4, Order confirmation No. 16178820

      BarCode "AU1000770216006", OrderNum "758-668", line number 6 (assuming on order), Quantity 4, Order confirmation No. 16178820

      BarCode "AU1000770216001", OrderNum "142-0500", line number 1 (assuming on order), Quantity 1, Order confirmation No. 16178820

      BarCode "AU1000800429001", OrderNum "361-6216", line number 1, (assuming on order), Quantity 1

       

      I am guessing at the breakout here:

      AU1 - element 14 designator

      000770216 - Purchase/Cart/Designator number??

      001 - Line number of the item within the purchase

       

      The Purchase/Cart/Designator number, doesn't relate to really anything (actual order number 16178820). I can find it in the cart whatsoever. So it must be some sort of internal number used, likely for relating their shipping to a cart?

       

      As it stands, there is no way to convert this with the existing API to anything usable unfortunately, at least none that I could find.

       

      Has anyone had success with this at all?

       

      Cheers,

      Ryan.
