How to configure automatic code creation when registering a product

Find out how to configure it so that your product code is generated automatically.


  • With Nex, you can automatically generate only 2- to 6-digit codes, as codes longer than 7 digits can conflict with EAN codes or cause errors in barcode readers, scale-generated codes and label printers.

Shall we learn how to configure automatic code creation?

1. On the Products screen, click on GEAR in the top right corner.

2. Enter how many DIGITS your code will be generated with.

After this configuration, existing products that have fewer digits than what was entered will be adjusted, automatically adding the necessary number of zeros to the left, while products that have more digits will not undergo changes.

3. Click on OK - F2.

4. When registering a product, select the AUTOMATIC option, next to the code field.

The automatic code will be generated based on the code with the most digits already registered by you, which is not an EAN barcode. If you configure it to be generated with 4 digits, but you have already manually registered products with 6 digits, the system will follow the registration based on the 6-digit code number already registered.

5. Click on SAVE - F2.

Done! Your product is registered with a code automatically generated by Nex.
