Problem printing barcodes when adding letters to the data

Applies To

Zebra Card Printers


When exclusively printing numbers the barcodes print correctly, when adding letters (alpha characters), the barcode does not print.

The problem is associated with the Barcode Format and the supported characters or numerics. Make sure that the Barcode that has been chosen supports the data that you wish to encode. Usin ga non-supported character will result in a barcode that fails to print.

Note: Code 39 symbology only supports uppercase letters.
