I have to generate barcode label. I prepared an excel sheet with data. That data is PX1888823^1LFG^21LA12^1LRIP

After linking this excel as data source and generating labels using this above data ^ is removed from the barcode by bartender, why ? How can I fix bartender so that it will make barcode containing ^ character ?

Thanks,

Ajit.

For some specific barcode symbologies (eg. Data Matrix barcode), the "^" is a reserved character for encoding non-printable characters such as escape sequences and functions. In order to encode a literal "^" character, you will need to use two consecutive carets ^^ to escape it.

Are you using Code 128? If so the ^1 and ^2 will be picked up by the symbol as if they are function 1 and function 2 characters.

If you use a different barcode symbology, such as Code 39 Full ASCII then they will appear.

Thank you Jasper Wen !

We are using Code 128. So, should I use two consecutive carets ^^ in case of Code128 symbology ?

Hello Experts,

Please help me how can I barcode the below string using bartender software in Code 128 symbology ? Bartender is removing ^ caret character from the barcode when the below string is passed to generate the barcode. 

I am passing this :       PX1888823^1LFG^21LA12^1LRIP

and bartender give the barcode :    PX18888231LFG21LA121LRIP     

It is removing ^ caret character . How will I force bartender not to remove ^ caret character from the passed string ?

Thanks,

Ajit

As Jasper's suggestions works I assume you are trying to work out how to implement the change in the label as I assume you cannot change the original data that is being passed into the barcode.

I used the Search and Replace feature on the Transforms tab but had to adjust the Syntax setting to "Literal" and as per the image below you can see the settings I used, the amended data string (on the left) and the barcode in the background
