Bar Code Scanner Not Filtering the Report

Hi There,


I have created an excel test file where I manually typed in 4 barcodes.


I updated Power BI to pull in this sheet and changed the barcode column to "barcode" type and "text"

I created a table in the report, then published said report online.





I go to the camera in the app, scan a product's barcode but I get a "Couldnt filter report" "Looks like this barcode doesnt exist in the report data"


I'm not sure how this doesn't work because I typed in exactly what I see on the barcode below. 




Any ideas as this is very frustrating!

Not sure if you ever got the answer you were looking for but I believe your problem is that you have left off the last digit in your data set.  The UPC that is scanned includes the tiny little digit at the very end. In your image I thing it's a "2".
