Creating a CSV File

CodeREADr supports the extension .CSV (Comma Separated Values) to quickly add barcodes to a database. These CSV files must meet the standards below. Not following this format will result in an upload failure. Also, it is recommended that header lines should not be used, as they will also import as a separate entry. Note: uploading CSV files with more than 3 columns will be rejected.


Yes1Value – The Barcode to validate. 100 character limit
No2Response – The text or HTML content you want the app user to see after a scan.
No3Validity -Status of the value when scanned.
“1” for a valid response.
“0” for an invalid response.
Valid by default. (even if Column C has a value that is not 0 or 1)



Advanced – Webify

The Response text can be simple text; or text with clickable URLs; or presented using HTML (online or offline). For instructions on using HTML please look at our Webify documentation.

Advanced – Contextual Variables

The Response text can also present specific information to the app-user based on SCAN_VALUE, USER_NAME, USER_ID and SERVICE_ID. For further information on how to customize the Response text using contextual variables, please look here.
