Hi Everyone
I am new to barcode so please forgive my ignorance up front. I am trying to print a barcode that contains (A) . This is the actual text: UPD70F3366GJ(A)-GAE-QS-AX

The label when printed looks fine, however when it scanned, into excel for example the (A) becomes *A)
I have tried using GS1-128 with code set on Auto as well as Code 128 also with the code set on Auto.
I am using bartender Professional version 9.4
Any help in getting this resolved will greatly appreciated.
Thanks
graham

Hi Graham,

I've tested this out, and using two different scanners in our office I've been able to appropriately scan both a code 128 and a gs1-128 barcode with that data. This resembles an issue with your scanner not being appropriately configured to use that character, you'll want to check the user's manual for information on how to set that up to appropriately read code 128 barcodes. There might be something about 'extended characters' that you'd need to enable. But as long as the barcode itself shows the right characters in the human readable it should scan appropriately.
