    This question i asked is not related to KCML, as i only need to know how to supress a parity bit on barcode?

    I need to find help, no matter the system i use to know what code is used to supress a parity bit on a code 39 barcode.

    If you have any idea or direction or even the correct forum i will gladly take the advise.

    Thanks

  • I have experience coding to read and print UPC barcodes. I assume you refer to UPC-A (12 digit) barcodes, where the last digit is a checksum. The checksum digit is part of the barcode, as read by any scanner. Extra code would be required to omit the trailing digit. Even the shorter UPC-E (6 digit) barcodes depend on the checksum digit. Any code or program that sends a UPC barcode to a printer would require modification of the code. I doubt there is anything that can be done to the printer driver, or to the scanner, to omit the last digit.

    I guess I have to ask why you would want to print just part of the barcode?

    Thank you very much for the response.  You are correct in saying that i am using the UPC-A barcode which has the checksum after each data send.

    The reason i am trying to supress the checksum digit is that when the barcode prints it does not reflect the true data send from the system.

    Thus i need to supress the checksum digit " Parity" in order to get the true reflection of data being send printed and scanned.

    Thank you once again for the reply and insite.

    Regards
