USPS IMpb GS1-128 Barcode Generation


I am attempting to generate a USPS IMpb barcode in IDAutomation Label Software Pro. I cannot find a way within the software to create a serial number with leading zeros appended to the end of the barcode. Below is the formula that I'm using.

~213&fieldname(Column1)&~212&fieldname(column2)&labelfield(1)

~213 = FNC1
FieldName(Column1) = 420432189998
~212 = FNC1
FieldName(Column2) = 92019901123456
LabelField(1) = 1 (Incrementing Number)

I want LabelField1 to contain leading zeros so that the length = 7 '0000001' and have it increment by one. Alternatively, is there another way to accomplish this?

Operating System: Windows 10

Application: IDAutomation Barcode Label Software Pro

One solution to the serial number issue with leading zeroes in the Barcode Label Software is to:

1. Create an Excel Sheet. Set the cell type to Text.
2. Set the first cell to 0000001
3. Fill all of the cells until it reaches 9999999 or desired serial max.

4. Open the Label Software.
5. Add an External Data Source by selecting Tools - Data sets - Link External Data.
6. Upload the Excel file. Be sure to uncheck Header Row and checkmark Embed Data.

7. Set up your Label Fields as you normally would.

8. Double-click the barcode and set the Value Type to formula. Use LabelField for the data that are in the Label Field and use Field for the data that are in the Embedded Data.

In this screen shot, my serial number and label are slightly off because I did not uncheck the Header Row originally when linking the External Data.
