Question

 

When I am using an Interleaved 2 of 5 barcode in BarTender, I get a leading zero that isn't there. There are no Transforms added to the barcode either.

 

Answer

Because digits are encoded by pairs, only an even number of digits can be encoded. If you create a barcode with an odd number of digits, an extra digit will be added to complete the pair.
