[Koha] [Koha-devel] Barcode Don't Found

The difficulty mightbe between the printed barcode labels and the barcode
scanner. You should verify with the scanner what the labels actually return:
modern barcode types (like Code 128 symbology) will let you print labels
which have spaces in the human-readable text, but no spaces might be encoded
in the barcode. 

This lets barcode labels show a human-readable number that is divided up,
even though the actual data encoded doesn't include the space.

In other words, the human-readable barcode on your book labels might "show"
a space where none exists in the scanned barcode data. So if your MARC
record has a barcode data field with a space in the middle, then your scans
won't match if the scanner is stripping them out.

I think you'll find your barcode labels show the text as "T 01234" but the
scan returns "T01234" and  the MARC record has "T 01234" so no match

Hope this helps.
