UCC128 human readable format code in zpl

UCC128 human readable format code in zpl

UCC128 human readable format code in zpl

I am using the following zpl code in a label template:


The UCC128 data is pulled from a field that contains a string of numbers like 00006196590135710014.  I need that number to appear on the label in this human readable format, (00) 0 0619659 013571001 4.  I can not change the way the number appears in the table I am pulling it from.  Is there a zpl command or code that will take unformatted data and turn it into the format I need?   

appreciate the help.

RE: UCC128 human readable format code in zpl

Hi all,

I just realized that this post might not be an exact fit in this forum since I am asking about formatting the human readable portion of a UCC128 barcode. Please let me know if there is a more appropriate forum to post in.


RE: UCC128 human readable format code in zpl

This is the only barcode forum here at tek-tips. But you might contact Zebra since they wrote ZPL.
