Barcode Not Printing Variable Data Correctly – CODESOFT Problem

Summary

This article explains the cause and solution to a CODESOFT problem that causes a variable to display incorrectly on a barcode.

Symptoms

The variable data on a label does not display in CODESOFT as a barcode.

Explanation

The most likely cause of this problem is that the data does not conform to the specific type of barcode defined on the label. There are many possible restrictions to the data for different types of barcodes. Here are some examples:

  • Numeric only
  • Number and uppercase characters only
  • Special characters (!@#$%^&*…)
  • Number of characters or digits. In some cases, it must be exact number of digits or characters

To determine the cause of the problem, check the type of barcode defined in the label and verify that the data conforms to the barcode requirements.
