How to Generate EAN-128/GS1-128 in SSRS
GS1-128 (formerly UCC-128/EAN-128) is an application standard of the GS implementation using the Code 128 barcode specification. GS1-128 not only encodes data, but provides a method of explaining the meaning of the data by defining Application Identifier. A Code 128 has the following structure: Code 128 start character, Code 128 FNC1 character, AI, Encoded data, Checksum character and stop character.
