How to encode the FNC1 to create a GS1-DataMatrix compliant barcode?

I need to generate a GS1 Compliant 2D Data Matrix bar code for a customer. I thought I had it under control, but the customer has informed me that the example I provided is not compliant. The human readable text they want appears below.

(01)00841506100258
(17)200826
(10)AN1508001
(240)0033160AG

I know that the first line is the GTIN number, the second is the expiration date and the third is a lot number. Don't know what the fourth line is but think it is a drawing number and revision. They want all this information concatenated in the actual bar code.

I am using the IDAutomation ActiveX component for Access 2013. When I code this in as the control source for the component, they tell me it is not correct.

Can anyone suggest what I should use as the correct control source for the ActiveX control?

Operating System: windows 7

Application: Access 2013

Thanks for your input, but the real answer is described below.

I did not know that the FNC1 character is REQUIRED at the BEGINNING of the string to make it compliant. After that, it can be used where required, but is NOT required prior to each AI. It turns out that the string I needed to specify for my active X component control source, depending on the customers requirement is either:

="~101008415061002581720082610AN1508001" & Chr(29) & "2400033160AG"
or
="~101008415061002581720082610AN1508001~12400033160AG"

Based on your order, you have the IDAutomation Data Matrix Font and Encoder for Windows. To create GS1-DataMatrix, consider using the Fonts and using the Fonts and VBA solution from the package.

The FNC1 is encoded by setting ApplyTilde/ProcessTilde to 1 and using the characters ~1 before any Application Identifier that requires it.
