    Hi there,

    I'm facing a little problem:

    Is it possible to switch the subsets in the designer?

    For example:
    I've got 2 parts of a barcode. The first should always be subset A, the second always subset C.
    Now, what I want to do, is defining a barcodefield, that takes my first part with subset A and the rest in subset C.


    This page was quite helpfull, for switching the subset via fieldvalue, but that doesn't fit my question of dealing with the switch in the designer.

    Any help is greatly appreciated~

    Hello Thomas,

    The special characters that define the start of a different subset are nothing different than the normal characters (except they cannot be typed from the keyboard with one key).
    If you want a barcode with a subset A and a subset C, your expression will look something like this:
    =Fields.SubsA + "þ" + Fields.SubsC
    where þ is the special character representing the begining of the subset C (Start C - FE ; 254). You can type from the keyboard by pressing Alt + 0254.

    All the best,
