    Same barcode printed in different UCC/EAN Modes?

    Arthur Zonnenberg

      We are trying to print a certain GS1-128 code as follows:

       

      ^BY2

      ^FO140,290

      ^BCN,110,N,N,Y,D

      ^FD421246001009011000006777617^FS

       

      Our printer in the location A prints this perfectly and the result is scannable by a GS1 Analyzer.

       

      However, our printer in the location B does not print a correct result because it is missing FNC1 characters that should be added automatically by the option D = UCC/EAN Mode. It doesn't. I had to change the FD to this:

       

      ^BY2

      ^FO140,290

      ^BCN,110,N,N,Y,N

      ^FD>;>842124600100>89011000006777617^FS

       

      to get a GS1-128 scannable barcode, starting character set C and  manually adding the FNC1 characters.

       

      The printer settings for location A are:

      What causes the different treatment in UCC/EAN Mode?
