    Default Ean 13

    Hi

    I have Zebra LP2844 which has built in font of EAN 13, the code to send to the printer is
    "N"+ CHR(13)+CHR(10) "B10,10,0,E30,3,7,200,B,'123456123456'"+CHR(13)+CHR(10)+ "P1"+CHR(13)+CHR(10)"

    Question is how do I send this to the printer and is it formatted correctly

    how do i add this to a field in a label

    I hope this makes sense

    Andy

    In order to send it to the printer from a label, define a calculated field for the label and put the definition you want to send
    Code:
    mybarcode = "N"+ CHR(13)+CHR(10) +"B10,10,0,E30,3,7,200,B,'123456123456'"+CHR(13)+CHR(10)+ "P1"+CHR(13)+CHR(10)
    Put this field on the label where you want it to print, and assign it a font property of EAN13.

    I don't know if the string above actually makes sense for EAN13, but it is the general way you would do bar codes. If the code above also tells the Zebra to switch to EAN13, then some modification will be needed.

    Bill.

    Hi Andy,

    Did you ever get this working?

    I have a very similar problem, and, although Bill's response helps...it's not the total solution...

    Thanks...

    If you have a problem it is best to state it.

    although Bill's response helps...it's not the total solution...
    What issue do you have?

    Sorry, I should have mentioned this is a very similar problem to what I'm trying to do with exactly the same Zebra LP2844 label printer and I was hoping that Andy could help me out by outlining his total solution - if he has one that is?

    I think I must be missing something in the detail as Bill's post explains how to format the string that is to be sent to the printer, not how to implement it and get the printer to interpret it.

    My own thread on this issue is at http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/al...d.php?p=428331

    Thanks...
