Hi I've setup a job to create barcodes using a database. Print Shop Mail works fine until a barcode that only has 8 or 12 digits is used and then generates an error. I think I need to create an expression to allow me to use 8 or 12 codes but i'm not sure how, can anyone help.

|Lay-out|Record|Description |
|1 |1 |Barcode 1: Error: Wrong number of input characters (12 chars needed)!|

It appears that in design the Default EAN13 needs 12 chars minimal..

What specific EAN13 is used ?
