GS1-128 Barcode


Hi, I would like to ask how can I create a GS1-128 barcode using your Function in Crystal Report 11.
I have tried to create a formula using IDAutomation_UCC128 (fieldname) or IDAutomation_Code128(fieldname) and drag the formula on the crystal report form and change the font name to be IDAutomationSC128L. But when tried to scan it, it scanned correctly but the font is Code128. I want to have it GS1-128.

Noelrollo, the setup you have done so far is correct with a few exceptions. The GS1-128 standard requires an FNC1 character to be before any application identifies. To do this in crystal, the IDAutomation_Code128ApplyTilde function can be used and the "~202" string can be included in the data to encode the FNC1 character.
For example IDAutomation_Code128ApplyTilde ("~202" & (table.field}) will encode the FNC1 in the first place in the barcode.

This method works with the Code 128 Fonts or the GS1-128 Fonts.

When generating GS1 symbols, IDAutomation recommends testing the result with the Barcode Decoder App which parses out GS1 data to verify proper encoding.
