How to format IMpb or GS1 Human Readable in Excel to Mail Merge using Barcode Fonts?

I need to encode data for IMpb in Excel and then merge the encoded data into another application. I can do this but I cannot create the correct human readable. This is what I need:

This is what I receive when I use the Code 128 Font Package with the IDAutomationVBA font encoder.

I need to remove the highlighted part of the human readable and also need the human readable separated. How can I do this? By the way, the barcode scans fine.

Operating System: Windows

Application: Excel 2013

It is possible to create separate fields to store the barcode and the human readable. In this example, I will explain how to create a barcode field and a human readable field that removes unwanted human readable values while appropriately splicing the text so that it is in the correct format. My example will use the data:

(420)010021860(92)47290762700100015402


The data in parentheses, 420 and 92, are Application Identifiers that require an FNC1. The data also requires a MOD10 check digit.

1. View the IDAutomationVBA installation post until Step 8 is completed.


2. In Column A2, enter the data: (420)010021860(92)47290762700100015402~m21
(The ~m21 will calculate a check digit using the 21 digits from right to left)

3. In Column B2, enter the formula for Code 128 that will encode the data: =Code128(A2,0,True)

4. In Column C2, enter the formula to display the human readable for Code 128. The RIGHT function will remove the desired amount of characters. The SpliceText function (from the IDAutomationVBA), will split the text to the appropriate format:
=SpliceText(RIGHT(Code128(A2,1,TRUE),LEN(Code128(A2,1,TRUE))-23),4)
image

Adjust the amount of characters to remove to account for spaces.


5. Merge into the desired application and apply the IDAutomationC128M (IDAutomationSC128M - demo font) to the Encoded Data field. Place the Human Readable field either above or below the barcode.
