    Data Matrix is a generic term for 2D and other "special" barcodes (cf wikipedia). For example PDF417 is a data matrix barcode.

    Hi

    Tha above specifications used for my 2D PDF barcode.

    I passed ASCII text to the form along with my Z1 barcode.

    In Program Lines

    CONCATENATE '[)>' '_1E06' '_1D' 'PTEST'

    '_1D' 'QTEST'

    '_1D' 'TEST'

    '_1D' '20TESTL'

    '_1D' '21LTEST'

    '_1D' '15KTEST'

    '_1D' 'BTEST'

    '_1D' '7QTEST'

    'GT' '_1E' '04'

    INTO gv_barcode.

    In Text

    <BC>&GV_BARCODE&</> -


    BC is our Z1 - PDF417 barcode

    I tried same thing for Data Matrix but it prints same PDF barcode.

    gv_barcode ='BXN,10,200FDTESTFS'. -


    ZPL printer code

    <BC>&GV_BARCODE&</>

    I want to create Barcode with DATA MATRIX ECC200 type in SE73.

    Please suggest me.

    Thanks

    • Sorry about my previous answers, I made confusions between "data matrix" and "matrix barcodes" (comprises PDF417, data matrix)

      With ECC200, I understand better.

      SAP new barcode technology only provides PDF417.

      SAP doesn't provide other barcodes symbologies in standard. Here, as you use ZPL, you shouldn't use character formats with reference to any barcode. Just send the text BXN,10,200FDTESTFS without <BC>

      Edited by: Sandra Rossi on Mar 10, 2010 3:12 PM

      ADDED:

      As you used <BC> which refers to PDF417, SAP converted BXN,10,200FDTESTFS into a PDF417 barcode graphic meaning text "BXN,10,200FDTESTFS ", whereas the text should have remained unchanged so that it is later interpreted by ZPL language of the Zebra printer and printed as barcode.

    Hi Sandra,

    I passed as you mentioned but it is printing the text as it is on the label, because there is no character format(BC).

    Please any suggestion.

    Thanks

    • In ZPL documentation, it is said to write it ^BXo,h,s,c,r,f

      c,r,f are missing in your code (f only is optional as there is a default value)

      Refer to the ZPL programming guide for more info

    Hello,

    we used SAP Add-on that generates the barcode DMC.

    http://www.suchymips.de/de/rbarc_datamatrix.htm

    I then created the corresponding print programs and Smart Forms.

    Kind regards
