Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack

  1. Click Retail > Setup > Bar codes and labels > Bar code setup.

  2. Press CTRL+N to create a new setup for bar codes.

  3. In the Bar code setup field, type an ID for the setup.

  4. On the General FastTab, in the Bar code type field, select a standard type for the bar code.

  5. In the Mask ID field, select a mask for the bar code.

  6. In the Font and Size fields, select a font for the bar code, and type a size for the font.

  7. In the Minimum length and Maximum length fields, type the minimum and maximum number of characters that the bar code can contain.

    For example, a bar code of the EAN-8 type always contains eight characters when it is printed. Therefore, for an EAN-8 bar code, both the minimum length and the maximum length are 8. For a bar code that contains a fixed string of five characters plus a number from 1 to 100, the minimum length is 6, and the maximum length is 8.
