The DataBar Stacked barcode specification is used in IDAutomation Barcode Fonts, Components and Applications to create a DataBar Stacked Barcode, which can encode the 14-digit GTIN. If less than 14 digits are being encoded, zeros are appended to the beginning of the data. If additional data needs to be encoded such as an expiration date or serial number, please consider the GS1 DataBar Expanded symbology.
