Data Matrix Zebra ZM400 300 DPI

I have a client switching fro RS barcodes to Data Matrix and when I generate the barcode online it works great. When the user prints the barcode on their end, it look like a QR code. Here is my code:

          zpl

            - ^XA

            - ^^FO100,100

            - ^BXN,10,200^FD,A00001^FS

            - ^FO130,70^ADN,30,10^FDA00001^FS

            - ^PQ1

            - ^XZ

Any advice?

Your ZPL looks fine for Data

Your ZPL looks fine for Data Matrix code and prints correct on my printer. What's wrong when your client prints from their printer? Can you show the image of print and the impage of the online rendering?

The ZPL you posted is

The ZPL you posted is certainly using ^BX, which means to print the Data Matric code. Below is what I got from the printer after sending your ZPL to ZQ320 printer. I don't think your client uses ^BX in their ZPL. They must have used ^BQ, for QR code instead. That's why you got the QR code output from them.
