BarCodeWiz ActiveX Specific

  • If you enter a 12-digit UPC A number, BarCodeWiz ActiveX will attempt to convert it to its UPC E equivalent.
  • UPC-E barcodes must start with the digit 0.
  • The last digit is a check digit. You may omit it to have the check digit calculated and added automatically.
  • 2-digit and 5-digit add-ons are supported. Simply append the digits to the barcode number. For example:
    • 5-digit add-on 99999. Check digit suplied: 0111222399999
