Encoding ITF ( Interleaved 2 of 5)

We have been using Windows Barcode Font Encoder DLL for barcode fonts for most of the fonts and there are no issues. Currently we are trying Interleaved 2 of 5 (with bearer bars), but found the encoding result in not correct and when compared with the MS Office Encoder.

Can you advise if there is anything specific that needs to be done to make this work?

Operating System: Windows

Best Answer

SCC-14/ITF-14 comprises of 13 data digits with a calculated Mod10 digit (based on the proceeding 13 digits). See GS1 for more specifics on the Logistic Variant/Packaging indicator.

To create an SCC-14 barcode with ITF, perform the following (this is generic data – the idea is the same):
Data: 000234567891
• Turn on/enable the Mod10 Check Digit option

Are you limited to ITF or can you also use Code 128?

Only the standard Interleaved 2 of 5 Font Package includes fonts that will generate human readable and bearer bars.

To generate Bearer Bars and Human Readable, use any font that begins with:

The Barcode that we are trying to generate is the Bearer Bar Interleaved 2 of 5. If it is the Standard Interleaved 2 of 5 there is no issue.

Another question is there a Interleaved 2 of 5 barcode as per attached picture? image

The encoded text given was indicative of Universal ITF (Interleaved 2 of 5) encoding. After applying it to the Universal Barcode Font, a correct barcode was formed:
image

Which scans as: 0000001567474230475162, where the last 2 is the correct mod10 check digit encoded in the barcode.

Conclusion:
A barcode is a binary representation of the data it contains. The evaluation of a barcode is not in the way it looks to the human eye, but instead on the way it scans. In this case, there is nothing wrong with the barcode, as long as the correct IDAutomation barcode font is applied to the encoded text.

The value of the barcode that we are testing here is 00000156747423047516.

After encoding, the value is:
