ZPL Data Question

I'm setting up a label that will contain a couple of bar codes. I made the sample in ZebraDesigner and exported it to a file. I understand most everything in the ZPL, but one thing I haven't figured out. The data field for one of the barcodes is this:

 

^FD>;1604>62A-0^FS

 

The text in the bar code is "16042A-0"

 

In the parameter of FD, why is there a >6 is the middle and what does it mean?

 

Also is the ";" at the beginning standard for 128 barcodes?

 

Thanks,

Bernie

PS: Anyone know a good service to print and bind a copy of the ZPL manual? I guess I'm old school on reference manuals.

It looks like your barcode

It looks like your barcode data is switching from subset C to subset B.

>; is the start code for subset C, which is all numeric values from 0-99.

>6 is the subset C invocation code for subset B, which handles normal alpha/numeric characters.

More information Code 128 subsets can be found on pg. 91 of the ZPL manual.

RE: education

As we see ZPL Data Question so we will hope here you will be able to find https://www.easy-essay.org/write-my-essay/ that for the first time ever. You will look into that matter as that can be what we all are in need for the first time on time and will be shared by those who like it.
