I'm adding a 128 BarCode into a prn file to test, but barcode scanner can't read it.


Hello. Here is my problem.

I'm adding PCL commands to a prn file to test BarCode 128.
I'm trying with the word "BarCode", so I've added start, checksum and stop commands. Here is my PCL commands:

<ESC>%-12345X@PJL COMMENT PCL Job <CR><LF>
@PJL ENTER LANGUAGE=PCL <CR><LF>
<ESC>(1758XÌBarCodevÎ<ESC>(3@
BarCode
<ESC>E
<ESC>%-12345X

This command ÌBarCodevÎ is working just fine, because I've tried to print it on a word file, and my barcode scanner read it just fine.
The problem is when I add the PCL font (Provided by id automation demo) into the printer (id 1758). After I print that PCLs commands the barcode is not readable using the barcode scanner.
Looking the barcode printed, I can assume that the start and stop characters (Ì and Î) are not being recognized (The two barcodes characters are equal and are equal to a character that is not recognized for the printer).

Can you please help me? If this works I can offer my company to buy the product.

Thanks in advanced.

Hi there.

I have erased the

"%-12345X@PJL COMMENT PCL Job
@PJL ENTER LANGUAGE=PCL"

And it's working fine!

This is the good prn:

<ESC>(s50v<ESC>(1755X

ÌBarCodevÎ

<ESC>%-12345X

Thanks a lot!

Compare the barcode displayed in the Word file with the print out from the PCL. Is the bar pattern the same?

Can you take a photograph or scan of the printed barcode and send the image to support@idautomation.com or attach as an image to the forum?
