Single digit barcode wont scan

Single digit barcode wont scan

Single digit barcode wont scan


When I print a single digit barcode it will not scan, when more then 1 digit it will.

Tried this on a Zebra 105, Zebra 140 and LP2844Z

ZPLII Language

Here is the ZPL code:

If I change this to:
^BY1,3.0,76^FO105,112^B3N,N,,N,N^FDY ^FS
This it will scan with a space on the end.

I've checked my scanner to ensure there is no minimum length defined. Anyone have any ideas?


RE: Single digit barcode wont scan

You've just discovered that there IS a minimum length. so add a leading Zero to your single digits and proceed!

You can resolve the issue by reprogramming your scanner to accept the one digit.  Therefore, creating a leading number is not needed.
