The Monarch® DB01 Download Utility enables you to transfer an application’s lookup tables and data collection files between a PC and a Pathfinder® Ultra® Silver 6032™ printer. The lookup tables are used in three formats, 1, 6, and 10. The download utility uses the UPCA barcode field as the key field to search the lookup tables that you create. Your printer is loaded with 10 fixed formats.

The four fields include the following:

UPC-Abar code - numeric or alphanumeric (12 digits)

department - numeric only (0-4digits)

description - alphanumeric (general information field, 0-14digits)

price - numeric only (Dollar sign and decimal automatically inserted
