DataMatrix Creation Error - 12x12 Data Matrix code will not be created when six letters are used.


  • When generating a 12x12 Data Matrix code in Dynamic Barcodes, if six letters are used, an error will be reported when generating the code.
  • It is not possible to create Data Matrix barcodes of a given size containing letters of the maximum possible capacity. E.g. 6-letter codes like ABCDEF can be encoded only into 14x14 or larger, although they should also fit into 12x12.
