Qr Code Needs Ucc/ean128 Check Digit S’abonner

Hi, I'm printing a string of data exported from my ERP system (via flat file) that includes data identifiers and I have a new need for 2D symbology due to space constraints on the label.

When I print a linear code 128, I have the option (within Bartender) to select UCC/EAN-128 and the 'check digit' box is already checked.  The software adds the check digit and my barcode is happy.

 

But I do not have the same provision for QR code.  Is there a way to add it?

 

Example data string:

 

Raw:
01008838738709111150518172005152143094688

 

With check digit (16th char):

010088387387091411150518172005152143094688

 

Showing data identifiers and the check digit (the first 4 in the string):

 

(01)0088387387091 4 (11)150518 (17)200515 (21)43094688

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Oh- what version of Bartender you ask?  V6.20....  I know, I know......

I don't have much experience on BarTender V6.20 - thank you for using the BarTender long time.

 

In 10.1, you can create a GS1-128 barcode(Barcode 1), There's GS1 QR Code to support GS1 application identifier wizard.

Please try out with our 30-day trial version - I recon V6.20 won't run on recent OS so you need to upgrade to new version sooner.

The check digit you refer to is regarding the check digit of the Code 128 symbology, it's hidden and is not considered to be part of the barcode data.  A QR code uses built in error correction (ECC) at the symbology level.  There are also check digits for certain AI data in a GS1 formatted barcode, example for AI (01) for the 13 digit GTIN field, which is something separate from the symbology.  If you use the wizard to create the barcode (used to be called EAN-128 in v6.20) then these check digits will be automatically generated for you.
