Best Answer

The procedure is compatible for Code 128 using the Barcode Label Software.

1. Run the Label Software and advance through the options to create a label.

2. Place a standard Linear barcode on the label.

3. To enter the Barcode Properties, on the barcode, right-click and select Properties OR double-click.

4. Select the Encoding tab. Set Barcode Encoding to Code 128, Code 128 Set to Auto, and place a check mark in the Apply Tilde box. Choose Apply.

5. Select the Value tab.

NOTE: The example explains how to encode a function in a standard value.

6. Based on the ASCII Table, a Horizontal Tab's value is 9. To encode a tab, use ~009.

The scanned result is:

123456 789012

In the ASCII Table, a carriage return is 13. To encode a carriage return (Enter), use ~013.

The scanned result is:
123456
789012


Additional Functions:
GS is a Group Separator. To encode a GS, use ~029.
RS is a Record Separator. To encode a RS, use ~030.
EOT is the End of Transmission. To encode a EOT, use ~004.

Functions within barcodes may be verified with the Barcode Scanner ASCII String Decoder.
