I need to produce a Data Matrix Barcode with C40 encoding.

I have a field length of 70, the barcode generates OK with all the settings at 'auto' but th barcode is not C40 encoded. If I select Base41 for C40 encoding, I get the error message 'Barcode error, barcode engine return code67.' in the print control.

I am using PReS V6.3.0.0

Just received this from OL Care:

You will need PReS v6.3.0.2 to be able to generate the new Royal Mail Mailmark barcode with the correct C40 encoding. A new barcode type named CMDM RoyalMail DataMatrix has been added to the PReS Barcode Wizard. Please use this module instead of the standard Datamatrix module.

PReS v6.3.0.2 can be downloaded from the following FTP site

Hope this helps.
