Code 39 Standard always shows asterisks ? Please help

Code 39 Standard always shows asterisks ? Please help

(OP)
I am using Zebra Designer Pro. Each time I create a barcode in Code 39, the software always shows (*) asterisks character at the beginning & end of the variable. I called Zebra, they said it's the way it is. Anyone here has any idea how to remove this?

RE: Code 39 Standard always shows asterisks ? Please help

I believe that Code 39 requires a start and stop character.  In most cases this is the asterisk .  Do you see the asterisk when you print the barcode?  Without the start/stop characters the bar code reader won't be able to identify the bar code as Code 39 and won't work.  
A quick Google search found and describes about the asterisk:

Don't print the human readable text as part of the barcode. Print it as a separate text field.
