Printing and scanning a Tab character

Hi all

 

I am currently using the GX420d and I am trying to code some text data into it to print and then scan it.

I have managed to find out now that I can use "\&" to create a carriage return between text data.

But whats the character I need to use to add a tab between data. For example "Surname {TAB} Firstname " ?

I cant just use space because I need specifically the character set for TAB.

Also I am a developer in C# and I have tried "(char)9" but that does not get translated into TAB when printed because when I try to scan it, it does not show the TAB spacing.

I want to print it into ^B7, 2D bar code.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks
