PSFS Offering - Barcode Scanning: How to setup your barcode scanner

How to set up your barcode scanner

To use a bar code scanner effectively in ParishSOFT Family Suite, Detail Posting, please access the attached documents


In the Detail Posting screen, one “enter” is needed to go from the envelope number field into the amount field.  After the amount is entered either by typing it or by bar code scan (included in our desktop user guide for bar code scanning) scan the three carriage return bar code in the *attached file which will tab through the check number and memo fields, and will execute the Save button so the entry is saved and the cursor is back in the envelope number field.  

Here is how the process to enter contributions works using the barcode scanner:

  1. Scan the Envelope number.
  2. Use the Enter Key or Scan the One Carriage return barcode*.
  3. Type the amount.
  4. Scan the Three Carriage return barcode*.
  5. Repeat steps 1-3


Here’s the visual for Detail Posting:




To program the 8110/8150/8210, you must scan a series of programming barcode in the correct order.

To program each option, you must:

  1. Scan the Program Barcode on the parameter setting list.
  2. Enter the option mode by scanning the Option Bar Code (also on the Parameter setting list).
  3. On page three of the Parameter Setting List, the necessary alphanumeric inputs are listed. Scan these alphanumeric entries. To confirm above steps, you must scan the Finish barcode on page three of the parameter setting list.
  4. Once you have finished programming. Scan the Exit barcode found on Page two of the Parameter Setting List.


One scanner option is from ZBAUS, Inc.

The document, Barcode Reader from ZBAUS Inc,  has the manufacturer's, Zbaus Inc (aka ZBA) contact information. The document, Bar code scanning carriage return options,  has the bar codes for one, two, and three carriage returns (aka “enters” on the keyboard). 

Zbaus Inc (aka ZBA) is the most popular bar code scanner choice for ParishSOFT customers. Zbaus has set up the bar codes in the attached document; however, these bar codes should work with any brand of scanner, as the font the codes are made from is a standard font and don't have anything to do with the brand of scanner.


Barcodes: See the attached documents below.
