    Output of a barcode



      Output of a barcode


      Hi there. I have been requested by one of our customers to incorporate a barcode for stock control into a form of ours.

      The barcode is 3 of 9 also known as Code 39.

      To get the correct output I need to start the item number with * and also end with a *.

      I also need to output the actual product code onto the form but I don't want the * to appear.

      How can I achieve this result please?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.


      I understand that I need to use a calculation to add the * to the start and end of the product number, but my problem is sorting out the actual calculation as FM sees the * as a multiplication symbol.
