Click Retail > Setup > Bar codes and labels > Bar code setup.
Press CTRL+N to create a new setup for bar codes.
In the Bar code setup field, type an ID for the setup.
On the General FastTab, in the Bar code type field, select a standard type for the bar code.
In the Mask ID field, select a mask for the bar code.
In the Font and Size fields, select a font for the bar code, and type a size for the font.
In the Minimum length and Maximum length fields, type the minimum and maximum number of characters that the bar code can contain.
For example, a bar code of the EAN-8 type always contains eight characters when it is printed. Therefore, for an EAN-8 bar code, both the minimum length and the maximum length are 8. For a bar code that contains a fixed string of five characters plus a number from 1 to 100, the minimum length is 6, and the maximum length is 8.
