Extended Code 3 of 9 Primer

Extended Code 3 of 9 has all of the same characteristics as Code 3 of 9 with the addition of several other characters such as lower case letters and some symbols.  If you are not yet familiar with Code 3 of 9, it may be to your advantage to start with the Code 3 of 9 Primer.  Like Code 3 of 9, in order to encode characters, simply surround any combination of supported characters with the * character.  For example, if you want to encode "123", you would type in "*123*".   




Difficulty Level
  • Software Beginner - Basic barcode knowledge is a plus but not required

  • Hardware Beginner Plus - To use the extended code 3 of 9 set, you may be required to scan a barcode from the manual that came with your scanner. 


Start Characters

The * is the standard start character. 


Stop Characters

The * is the standard stop character. 


Supported Characters

A - Z (upper and lower case),  0 - 9, !, @,#,$,%,^,&,(,),_,-,+,=,[,],{,},:,;,",',<,>,.,/,?.  The percent, plus, backslash, and dollar characters are included in this set, but they are the extended code 3 of 9 character and not the function character that they are in basic code 3 of 9 sets.  See code 3 of 9 supported characters for an explanation of these function characters.


Symbology Rules

In order to scan, your barcodes must include the start and stop character, i.e., *123*.  


Special Characters
The {Space} character has been added to this font set.  Due to the limitations of several windows applications, this character has been moved to the {~} location.  This means that if you wanted to scan "BARCODE FONTS", you would actually encode "BARCODE~FONTS"


There are several factor that can cause a barcode not to scan properly.  The quality of paper, printer, ink or toner, scanner, and even colors are all components of a successful barcode.  It is impossible for us to say that every barcode you produce will result in a successful barcode therefore by downloading these fonts, you agree that it is your responsibility to ensure that the barcodes you produce will scan.  All of these fonts have been tested for correctness.  By ensuring that you have followed the rules of the symbology increase your chances greatly.


Special Notes about Symbology
This is one of the easiest barcodes to implement.  Most scanners can not read this set without extra work on your part.  Usually, this only involves scanning a barcode in the manual that came with your hardware.
