 +===== Deleting a barcode =====
 +To delete a barcode, click on it in the table to select it and click on the //Delete// button. You will be asked to confirm the deletion. But please note, you will not be able to delete any barcode that has been assigned to a line of stock. ​
 +
 +===== Editing a barcode =====
 +To edit a barcode, simply double-click it in the table. This will open the 'add a barcode'​ window shown in the //Adding a barcode// section below but the window will be populated with the barcode'​s details. Simply edit the details as described in the //Adding a barcode// section. Please note that, if a barcode has already been assigned to stock, you will not be able to edit the pack size or the barcode itself.
 +
 +===== Adding a barcode =====
 +To add a barcode to the item, click on the //Add// button. This window appears:
 +
 +{{ :​barcode_scanning:​barcoding_new_barcode.png?​500 |}}
 +
 +**Item**: this is the name of the item you're adding a barcode to, followed by its code. It is non-editable
 +
 +**Barcode**:​ the human-readable form of the barcode; the 2 or 3 digit type identifier followed by the 14 digit GTIN only. You can't type anything in here, you have two options:
 +  * Scan the item's barcode with a barcode scanner - the barcode'​s identifier and GTIN will appear in the textbox. If the barcode is not GS1 compliant you will see a warning message and you will not be able to save the barcode (just in case you've scanned the wrong thing. Why would anyone go wild with a scanner and start scanning anything they can find? ;-))
 +  * Click on the {{:​barcode_scanning:​recycle_icon.png?​15}} icon next to the Barcode field to have mSupply supply its own unique, internal GS1 compliant barcode. Each time you click on the icon, mSupply will supply a new barcode.
 +
 +**Pack size**: the pack size (number of individual items in one pack) that this barcode belongs to
 +
 +**Manufacturer**:​ the manufacturer that this barcode belongs to. Type the first few characters of the manufacturer'​s name and press the Tab key to select it from a list of matching names. If the manufacturer you want doesn'​t exist in mSupply, click on the {{:​barcode_scanning:​add_icon.png?​15}} button next to the manufacturer field to add it.
 +
 +**Barcode for next outer-level packaging table**: this is where you select the barcode that is the '​parent'​ of this one i.e. the one with the next biggest pack size. Selecting one is optional but it allows mSupply to identify barcodes that should go on tertiary level packaging (they can have different printing requirements). The table will show all the other barcodes entered for this item. To select the parent, simply click on the checkbox in the //Select// column to check it.  ​

-GS1 barcodes are unique to the combination of item, pack size and manufacturer.+GS1 barcodes are unique to the combination of item, pack size and manufacturer. So you won't be able to add 2 barcodes to the same item with the same pack size and manufacturer.
