QRCode with tilde (~) cannot be read in Excel

Postby wladimir on Thu Jan 22, 2015 12:38 pm

Hi, Al I use tilde as a field separetar when generating a QR code to be ready with a scan gun. I use Morovia QRCodeActiveX object in a excel spreadsheet and the issue is:
- Codes without tilde can be read by the scan gun
- Codes with tilde cannot be read by the scan gun

Can someone help me with this issue ??

Best regards,
Wladimir

Tilde(~) has special meaning in the input. It is used to encode special QRCode features. http://www.morovia.com/manuals/qrcode-font-encoder/ch02.php#input-format. These advanced features may not be suported by your reader and as such the reader did not give any result.

Replace all occurrences of ~ with ~~ and you should be fine.
