Check digit difference

Post by JonnyMatthews » Thu May 09, 2019 12:05 pm

Hi - just a query, on printing a label with (01) (to large to attach) and selecting the check digit to be entered with the data i got an error when using the following gtin code provided by the customer - 98715976023152 (error attached). When i changed this to calculate the check digit it printed correctly but also used 2 as the check digit.

How can this be? On checking what the check digit should be online it gave me a 5 (which worked when selecting entering with data).

NiceLabel version 2019 enabled GS1 barcode print trough function GS1-128. AI 01 requires 14 digit when check digit is operator input. On my configuration value 98715976023155 is accepted with no error. Last digit '5' is check digit. 98715976023152 is wrong value because '2' is not correct check digit value.
If problem still persist I would recommend to contact Nicelabel Technical support.
