Problems with the / character using Code 39 Fonts


Hello I have a problem with the / character in the barcode. My scanners can not read the barcode. This has worked before but now we have updated the software to our printer server, this can be done so that this does not work?
We have tried to write the same code for example W/231230 and have bar code 39, when typing the same code in streckkos 39 Full ASCII so looks different, why? When scanning these two barcode you get W/231230 (streckkod39) WO/231230 barcode full ASCII

I am not able to re-create the issue with the data you have mentioned. Can you send a PDF of the barcode to support@idautomation.com ?

When the start/stop characters are applied to the data and the IDAutomation Code 39 font is applied to the encoded data, the scanned result of W/231230 is W/231230--this is correct.

I have attached a barode that uses the Code 39 font. It is possible that will not scan since it has been converted from font to an image (this causes quality loss). However, if you have a scanner, attempt to scan the barcode. What is the result?

The barcode look like this. And this does not work. There is an N to be in the beginning, this N is in (N) on top of the image.

The forward slash is actually part of the Code 39 standard character set. Therefore, it will work directly by encoding the data as *W/231230* where the asterisks are the start/stop characters.

What is the font name that you are applying to the data? IDAutomation fonts begin with the name IDAutomation as in IDAutomationSC39 (demo), IDAutomationSHC39 (demo), IDAutomationC39, and IDAutomationHC39.

Verify the font size is set to an appropriate size using the Code 39 Font Specifications.
