Creating UPC-E Barcode 162807 generates 162874 barcode.. help

Been using this barcode label software with no problems so far. Today, creating UPC-E Barcode 162807 generates 162874 barcode.

If i create a UPC-E Barcode 162800 it generates a 162800 barcode. (which is correct) .

I see it creating a problem with 162805, 162806, 162807 (however 162803 and 162804 work just fine).

Thank you in advance for the help.

The only way to find the value of UPCe using the Label Software is to use its UPCa value. If your UPCa value is 01628000007 and you convert it to UPCe, it will be 162874.

You may verify this with our software:

as well as the other company's software:

So I guess we go back to the original question, can the IDAutomation software create a UPCe label of 162807 or not?

If it can, please show me an example proving that it can be done.

If it cannot, I need to know so we can purchase a different software.

Thank you for your help.

As mentioned in the previous post, most products do not calculate check digits for short UPCe. This does not mean that there are no products available that can calculate a UPCe check digit based on short UPCe data, it is just not very common. The software returns your value to UPCa to encode it for UPCe as it was only designed to encode an 11 digit UPCa value to produce UPCe.

Hi Ben,

I disagree with you because I was able to create a UPCe on this website www.barcoding.com/upc/ and use it for production since we cannot create it through IDAutomation Label Software. See image below:

The only way you can create the UPCe is if you use the UPCa number and choose UPCe in the Symbology option under the Encoding tab.

There are not too many products available that will allow you to enter the short UPCe for every value.

UPCe takes in 11 UPCa digits to generate it.

Even the link you have attached works the same way:

There is also no option in that software to take short UPCe and generate UPCe with check digit.

Ben,

The point is, I need to create a UPCe barcode of 162807 using the software we have purchased. Please show me an example how to achieve that.

Is the IDAutomation barcode software unable to produce the UPCe barcode 162807 that I need?

Thanks,

This did not work for the UPCe number of 162807

I went to this website (www.morovia.com/education/utility/upc-ean.asp) to generate the UPCa number from the UPCe and got this:

UPCe 162807 converted to UPCa 01628000007

I tried putting that standard value into the label software and I get UPCe barcode of 162874, not 162807.

Can you please try to give me an example using the UPCe barcode of 162807 that I need?

Other information from my tests:

To generate UPCe, it must take in 11 UPCa digits as the Barcode Label Software does not handle short form UPCe.


Here is an example that uses Standard data that encodes UPCe using 11 digits (based on UPCa):

With the exception of our VBA encoder for fonts, all IDAutomation products must use 11 digits to generate the UPCe.

I am just using the software, nothing else. I ended up having to use an online barcode generator from somewhere else and used a .docx template for the labels.

I still would like to print using the software though.

I see that you are using the Barcode Label Software. Are you
linking external data from a database, Excel file, or a CSV?
