"It is recommended to limit the amount of data in each 2D barcode symbol to 800 characters or less, using 20 columns or less. Although the specification states that "up to 1100 bytes or 1800 ASCII characters can be encoded in a PDF417 symbol," it is not usually achievable."

Hi Scoot ,

I need little help on 2Dbarcodes

as per my understanding we have less then 800 character limit for barcode ,

do we have any impact of duplicate data on barcode ?

because when  i gave same input to the barcode and scan it ,i dont find any data in it ?

for example: i gave  "9" character 6000 times , which almost generates more  8 barcodes, but when i scan the barcode i dont find any data in it .

can you please help out  whats the issue with it ?

you can mail me on my id :shirahatti.satish2010@gmail.com.

Thanks,

Satish Shirahatti
