Letters Appearing instead of numbers from scanned bar code

Just recently, scanned bar codes are showing letters instead of numbers. For example, bar code 016264 is now showing 0162W when scanned and the application on the hand held device doesn't recognize it. Item not found. Does anyone know why this would just start happening? We are using IDAutomation_C39FontAdvantage (paid version).

Using Zebra label printer.

Thanks in advance for any insight here.

Jeff

It may be possible that you are using a font encoder and you have the check digit option enabled? If that is the case, you should disable the check digit. If that does not solve your problem, please upload some screenshots and provide more information about how you are generating that barcode within the software.
