Thanks for the reply - this solved the problem. I didn't remember the 6 character limit and the programs that won't print do indeed have 7 character labels. I renamed the program using 6 characters and the barcode prints!

Thank you!

Massimo - truly a more modern solution but my PC nearly as ancient as an HP-41 and my connection at work is so slow when the modem died I didn't bother to replace it. My office is nearly off the grid in the forest! I run a mac laptop at home and while I could probably figure out how to make your solution work on a mac I would miss the nostalgia of doing it the ancient way. ;-)

What happens when you execute: GTO IND ST Y

[Shift] [GTO] [Shift] [.] [Y]

What's in the string in register Y? VIEW ST Y

[Shift] [VIEW] [.] [Y]

Does a program with this name exists?
How many letters does your program have?
A register can only hold 6 characters while a label can be made of 7 characters.

This is only based on the description of the BCP command in the Quick Reference Guide of the Plotter Module:

Or then maybe the row number/bit pattern ( isn't correct.
