GS1128 barcode is one of the most widely used barcode symbologies designed on top of Code128. It's a smart and simple solution to use Barcodesoft Code128 barcode fonts to generate GS1128 Barcodes.
With Barcodesoft GS1128 barcode package and Microsoft® Office, it is very convenient to print gs1128 bar code from your Windows computer and desktop printer. Our barcode fonts work with all different GS1128 Application Identifiers, such as SSCC, GTIN, Global Coupon Number(GCN), Global Document Type Identifier(GDTI), Global Location Number, Global Identification Number for Consignment (GINC), Global Shipment Identification Number (GSIN), NATO Stock Number(NSN), Global Model Number (GMN), Service Relation Instance Number (SRIN), International Bank Account Number (IBAN), Coupon Extended Code, Coupon code ID, Global Returnable Asset Identifier (GRAI), Global Individual Asset Identifier (GIAI).
Tip: When your have multiple GS1128 Application Identifiers in your data, please put each GS1128 Application Identifier between parentheses.
For example, you need both AI (02) and AI (10) in your application. Just put both (02) and (10) between parentheses as shown below
Our GS1128 encoding DLL will add FNC1 for you automatically when it is necessary.
When preceded by a variable-lengthed Application Identifier, our GS1128 encoding DLL will place a FNC1 before the new Application Identifier.
When preceded by a fixed-lengthed Application Identifier, our GS1128 encoding DLL will NOT add another FNC1.
When you scan GS1128 barcode, the first FNC1 (& #247;) will be output as "[C1". Other FNC1(s) will be output as GS (ASCII 29).
