How can I increase the maximum number of characters that can be encoded into a Datamatrix bar code?


The number of characters that a Datamatrix bar code can encode is dependent on its error correction level property.
Click on the Datamatrix bar code in question with your label open in Design Mode and change the Error Correction Level from ECC 100 to ECC 200. This allows for up to 2335 alpha-numeric characters in the data for the bar code.
