UPC-A Add-In for Excel - UPC-A Information
UPC-A is the most common linear symbology in the United States which is uniquely assigned to each trade item. UPC-A is a subset of EAN-13. In reality, an UPC-A bar code is an EAN-13 bar code with the first EAN-13 number system digit set to "0". This means that any hardware or software capable of reading EAN-13 is automatically capable of reading UPC-A.
UPC-A Valid Encoding Characters:
  • Numeric digits: 0 - 9
UPC-A is a 13-digit-length barcode including the last check character. In addition, 2 or 5 supplement data can be encoded as the supplement barcode.
