How do I create a GS1-128 Barcode using IDAutomation products?


I need Start with a "c" + FNC1. When I create the barcode with your product, it does not work.

All IDAutomation products that can generate Code 128, can generate any of the Code 128 standards, including: SSCC18, GS1-128 (EAN or USS-128), and SCC14.

These barcodes types can be created using barcode font and an encoder, an application, or a component.

In any case, the way the data is formatted is the same. For example, to ensure that you are creating a proper GS1-128 barcode, you will need to make sure that:

(1) You are using Code 128
(2) The encoder, application, or component Character Set is set to Auto
(3) Also, depending on the encoder, application or component being used, the ApplyTilde or Process Tilde function is set to True.

For example, if I wanted to encode my data "(01)123456789123(10)96345" as a GS1-128 barcode using the Online Barcode Creator, I would need to make sure that all three requirements are met. The data can also be entered as ~21201123456789123~2121096345

Enter the Data and set the Symbology to Code 128:

Set the Character Set to Auto (This will encode your data in Set C because it is strictly numeric data)

Set the Apply Tilde property to True. This will allow the parentheses around the data to let the encoder know that you are encoding an FNC before the AI. Instead of a parenthesis, you may also use ~212 for 2 digit, ~213 for 3 digits, and so on.

The barcode is created.

NOTES:

When the barcode is scanned, it will not display the parentheses or ~212...etc. If it does, then check to make sure that ApplyTilde is set to True and that Code 128 Auto is selected as the character set.

To decode the FNC1 so that it displays in the barcode scan, you will need to make changes to your scanner to display the FNC.

If your AIs are being read as FNC1 for fixed length fields, then please view the article at:
