Forms Identification (Barcode)

The Forms Identification feature, also known as Forms Barcode, ensures that the form required for a specific application, or print job, is actually the form loaded in the selected printer. The Forms Identification feature reads a preprinted barcode as the form is moving through the printer. The value of the Forms Identification feature includes increased operations performance and quality, reduced operations costs, and improved operations control.

More information can be found in the Continuous Forms Advanced Function Printers: Forms Design Reference, G544-3921 and in the IBM Page Printer Formatting Aid: Operator's Guide, S544-5284, under the description of VFYSETUP. This function is dependent on the driver support and uses one of the Pre/postprocessing Interface or Advanced Function Postprocessing Interface slots on Printer 2.
