Code 128

Updated: 10/02/2017 by Computer Hope

Code 128 is a symbology (font) used in barcode technology that has all 128 characters of the ASCII table, which allows an alphanumeric barcode. This symbology is used by downloading the font files so that it may be translated into printer code allowing the printer to print barcodes correctly. However, Code 128 is not necessary for all printers as specialized barcode printers have different barcode symbologies (fonts) built-in.
