Re: BARCODE EAN13

Jump to solution

Thanks again for your tests David.

Unfortunately, the check digit is not added;

I have the original customer barcode...the check digit is set to 9, so I should have

"9 790231 014617" and even if I enable the Caption option and check digit, I only get 12 caracters...

I am using FFCore 6.2.4. When I use the below setup I get 13 digits see the attached pdf.

David,

 

It seems to correct in 6.2.4...my colleague (and you ?) Daniel Osternaud had raised a spar fro that.

Seems to be corrected.

I'm in 6.2.3, let's me updating and I'll tell you if it works...

In your original barcode "9 790231 014617" the "7" is the check digit, not the "9"

When you input "9 790231 01461" the "7" will be added as 13th (check) digit.

Hi Henk,

 

I just try to replicate the customer barcode value.

The original one is 9790231014617; it contains 13 carcaters. When I scan the customer barcode, I get 13 caracters, so I need to get the same with FFCore.

FFCore -tested once again with 6.2.4- only accepts 12 caracters (neither 11 nor 13).

Did you try with FFCore ?

Thanks for your help ;)

Hi Philippe,

You should ignore the last digit when you reuse the code. The software creates the last digit.

So you can check this to enter the first 12 digits, the software creates a barcode with the added 13th digit.

Entering 979023101461 creates the barcode 9790231014617

Oh yes !

Understood what's going wrong.

Look at the screen shot, if you enable "Adjust the barcode legend", you don't see the 13th caracter.

If you disable it, works fine.

Thanks for your precious help Henk 👍👌😉
