How do encode a VT (Vertical Tab) in a Data Matrix/2D barcode?

Hello,

I want to create a barcode to scan 10 serial numbers at once but the field where I want to scan the serial numbers to has got space for 5. To go from the first serial number field to the next I use vertical tab (2x), and the next serial number can be filled in. When I entered the 5th serial number. I need a page down and can't find the code for the page down. For vertical tab I use [[VT]], is there a code for the page down?

Operating System: win7 (32bit)

Application: Smartcodestudio / SAP

It is possible to encode functions in a Data Matrix barcode.

1. In the product that you are using, enable ApplyTilde/ProcessTilde.

2. Encode functions using the ~d. For example, to encode a TAB, use ~d009. To encode a vertical tab, view the ASCII chat and find the Dec value; it is 11. Encode the vertical tab as ~d011.

Example 1
Encoding 12345~d009~d009~d00967890 will place three tabs between 12345 and 67890.

Example 2
Encoding Elmer~d013Barcode will place a carriage return between Elmer and Barcode.

The ~d method works for IDAutomation 2D products.

1st, sorry I did not noticed this is an answer and question for a certain kind of label software, I use smartcode studio: There for: thank you very much for answereing never the less.
If I make a datamatrix barcode and type 12345~d009~d009~d00967890, that is exactly what I see when I scan it.
If I want the tabs I must enter [[VT]][[VT]] that is 2 tabs...using the ~d009 does not work. Say, if I would purchase ID automation label sofware then what is the ~d code for page down?


br,
Elmer
