Code 128 Barcode Table Of Characters
(For the complete Code 128 specification, see the Code 128 Page)

The table below shows the three different character sets along with the decimal values of each character, which is used in calculating the Check Character. The final column shows the bar/space pattern for the character. The numbers indicate the number of modules wide the given space or bar is. To get the extended ASCII decimal, add 32 to the decimal value in the first column. There is a nice extended ASCII table here. Please note that Code 128 can only encode the English alphabet.
