Code 128 Bar Code not scannable

edited Jun 23, 2020 5:30AM in Oracle Analytics


Hi All, 

We have been showing a reference number as bar code in the BI Publisher RTF Template using 128b formatting.  Based on a new change, we have appended *1234 to the reference number. Once we added this, bar code is no longer identified by the scanner. When we verify through online bar code generators, the bar code is much shorter. I have seen that 128c sub-class can be used for shortening the strings but it doesn't support special characters like *.

Any ideas on how to use 128c but also be able to support the '*' character ?   Also - do we need to register '*1234' as bar code vendor id ? 


Howdy, Stranger!
