It is estimated that many friends in the use of bar code software to make bar codes, did not use EAN18 bar code, in fact, EAN-18 bar code is also known as SSCC-18 bar code, some software may only SSCC-18 bar code, no EAN18 bar code, which caused some users trouble. The EAN18 barcode consists of 18 digits, 17 of which are data digits and the last digit is the check digit.
