Bottom right side of mail merged 2D barcode is not printing.


The bottom right corner of the QR code is not printing. I thought it was a printer failure, until I noticed that it was only happening on some sheets. Then I looked at the actual Word document, and found that it is incomplete in the mailmerge (see attached sample).

As you know, we’re using the VBCode to generate the QR Code, which we then mailmerge into Word. I just examined the excel sheet to see why this may be happening. I believe the LENGTH of the QR Code generated is the issue. The codes that are working are all 240 characters long, while the codes that are failing are 306 characters long. The source data for the QRCode is 41 characters (where it works) and 43 characters where it doesn’t. I cannot shorten the source data. HELP!!!

Operating System: Windows

Application: word, excel

Modify the QR code formula by adding paramters. Set the last parameter, ErrorCorrectionLevel = 1.

EncQR(DataToEncode As String, Optional ProcTilde As Integer = 0, Optional EncMode As Integer = 0, Optional Version As Integer = 0, Optional ErrorCorrectionLevel As Integer = 0) As String

Here is an example:
=SUBSTITUTE(EncQR(B2,0,0,1),CHAR(13),"")


Re-merge the data.

NOTE:

If using another 2D barcode type, refer to the manual for the specific 2D barcode type. The post uses QR Code as the example.

The Substitute function resolves another issue related to the mail merge.
