I've got product from overseas that has an 8 digit bar code. Can I convert that to a UPC-A? If so,what software do I use?

    There are many programs that will PRINT or CREATE UPC's. I need one that will convert 8-digit EAN from Europe to 12-digit UPC for U.S. Or can that even be done?

Cannot read bar code


If it will not read any bar codes, then it must be repaired. If it only reads selective bar codes, then perhaps the one you are trying to scan may not be of the type it recognizes.

This scanner will read the following codes: LS 1004/LS 1006: UPC/EAN, Code 39 full ASC11, Code 128, Code 93,
Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5, Discrete 2 of 5; LS 1000: undecoded

How do I create a UPC Code Labels?


<p>Universal Product Code (UPC barcode) is numeric, computer-readable tags used to track products in a store or warehouse. GS1 is the only body that the numbers of the original UPC barcode can give companies in the United States. The acquisition of authentic bar code numbers for your UPC labels, you need a partner and GS1 bar code numbers for your payments. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Suppose your company expects annual turnover, number of products that will sell that require UPC bar codes, contact information and your business. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Go to the site of GS1 and GS1 U.S., apply for the program Connections partners. Pay your membership online by credit card, or follow the instructions as part of an application to send a check. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Log on to the GS1 site a day after your membership is processed to determine your company's prefix number. This number is unique to your company and is an essential part of your bar code numbers. His company prefix, the first 2-6 numbers of the barcode. Download your number of UPC bar code on the site of GS1. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Print your labels, UPC bar code at home or third company to print. You can choose to print bar codes directly on the product packaging. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Make sure your UPC barcode labels and height requirements for the color of GS1 distribution of your product needs. Labels that do not meet these requirements cannot be read by machines, bar code scanner. <br />

Hi. I'm not sure if this will help you, but I found this website:

UPC Database Item Lookup

According to this website:

"Enter the all digits printed on the UPC bar code, including any numbers to the right or left of the bar code itself, even if they don't line up with the main row of numbers. This should be 13 digits for an EAN/UCC-13, 12 digits for a Type A UPC code, or 8 digits for a Type-E (zero-supressed) UPC code. Anything other than 8 or 12 digits is not a UPC code! (And just because it's 8 or 12 digits doesn't mean it is a UPC.) You must enter every digit here.
If you have a barcode scanner that outputs plain numbers, you should be able to use it to enter the UPC number here."

So, apparently you need more digits to complete the bar code #. But if you have the full barcode, you should be able to enter it on the website linked above, and find the image of the frames that you are looking for. I hope this helped. Thanks!

My scanner reads only12 numbers not 13 numbers from barcode what h do?


Perhaps you should ask for replacements and ask for a bar code scanner who reads 13 numbers because even how many times you try it over and over again if the function of the scanner is limited in reading 12 number the results will be the same..Hope it can Help you.

What is the upc?


UPC=Universal Product Code
Wikipedia says:
The UPC encodes 12 decimal digits as SLLLLLLMRRRRRRE, where S (start) and E (end) are the bit pattern 101, M (middle) is the bit pattern 01010 (called guard bars), and each L (left) and R (right) are digits, each one represented by a seven-bit code. This is a total of 95 bits. The bit pattern for each numeral is designed to be as little like the others as possible, and to have no more than four consecutive 1s or 0s in order. Both are for reliability in scanning.
Since S, M, and E all include two bars, and each of the 12 digits of the UPC-A barcode consists of two bars and two spaces, all UPC-A barcodes consist of exactly (3 × 2) + (12 × 2) = 30 bars.
The UPC has only numerals, with no letters or other characters. The first digit L is the prefix. The last digit R is an error correcting check digit, allowing some errors in scanning or manual entry to be detected. UPC data structures are a component of GTINs (Global Trade Item Numbers). All of these data structures follow the global GS1 standards.

We need to convert UPC-A barcode number to EAN-13


Most scanners will convert UPCA to EAN13 as you scan if you have that setting checked. A 0 will be added in front of the UPCA to make it an EAN13. Nothing else changes. You can read about this stuff on Wikipedia.

Ean 13 problem


you are probably reading to a inteligent software package like Excell, which sees the inputted data as a number (so ignores leading zeros) you need to specify to the sytem that the incoming numbers are TEXT not numbers.
