Changing code 128 subsets within barcode using ZPL

Changing code 128 subsets within barcode using ZPL

Changing code 128 subsets within barcode using ZPL

I am trying to generate a Code 128 barcode using ZPL.  The client expects the barcode to use subset C, however, the data they are printing contains 14 numeric bytes followed by two spaces so they shift to subset B immediately before the two spaces.

The ZPL I am trying to create this barcode is...

^BCN,214,Y,N,N^FD>;>831335678901234>:  ^FS

Is that shift from subset C to subset B allowed?  If so, am I doing it right because I don't see a difference in the barcode between the code above and the same code with the spaces taken out.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

RE: Changing code 128 subsets within barcode using ZPL

Use >6 to change from subset C to B.

Like this:
^BCN,214,Y,N,N^FD>;>831335678901234>6  ^FS

>: is a start character, it's not for changing subsets.
