Need 3 character Universal encoder encode string for FNC1 for GS1-128

I need the 3 character code (e.g. such as your codes: FAB, EBD, etc. found in the source code file) to encode an FNC1 into my GS1-128 barcode. Per the spec an FNC1 is required before any variable length AI that is not the terminal AI. I have the developer version of this software and have used the source code to write our own routine to produce the string of character codes so I simply need the 3 character code so I can insert it at the appropriate place. I can't find any reference in the source code to what this FNC1 might be (I tried EBD which is the start character to indicate character set 2, but that didn't work so that obviously does not function as an FNC1 in this context). Please don't tell me to "turn on tilde" or anything like that since as I said we used your source code to write our routines so there is not "turn on tilde" function to turn on... we are literally mapping each ASCII character in the data to encode to your 3 character set... so I just need to know what 3 character set is to be used to insert an FNC1 character into the finished barcode. (this is the Universal Font, although I assume you can determine that from the Order# above)

It seems that MAI would be what you are looking for. Ultimately, the Online Universal Font Encoder may be used to test various data to determine the various codes.

For example, if the data to encode is:
01123456789012
then the encoded data is:
EBJFEFAFJCAGKAEHABEMEAFJJEBGIAH

If the data to encode include a FNC1 encode:
~21201123456789012
then the encoded data is:
EBJMAIFEFAFJCAGKAEHABEMEAFJFEFGIAH

MAI is the FNC1 encoded data for Code 128 Universal.
