Word QR Code Data Encoding

QR Code Valid Character Set

The QR Code is capable of encoding a large number of data into the barcode symbology. Three elements, data mode, qr code version, and error correction level, define the number of characters encoded in the qr code symbology.

The data mode, or datatype, indicates the encoded character set. There are four data modes based on the latest QR Code standard, numeric, alphanumeric, byte, and Kanji. Among the four, numeric mode only encodes numbers 0 through 9 and has maximal data storage up to 7,089 characters. The alphanumeric mode, maximal storage up to 4,296 characters, encodes $, space, %, *, +, -, ., /, :, 0 through 9, A through Z. the byte mode encodes 8-bit bytes with a maximal storage up to 2,953 characters. The Kanji mode encodes up to 1,817 characters maximally.

QR Code version ranges from 1 to 40, which shows the total symbol dimensions. Version 1 has 21 cells horizontally and 21 cells vertically. And version 40 has 177��177 cells which has the largest capacities.

The qr code error correction could detect and correct multiple random symbol errors. There are four error correction levels which are L (low), M (Medium), Q (Quality), and H (high). A higher error correction level often has a less storage capacity.

However, the QR Code Add-in for Word provides an Auto data mode so that the users could input the message data into the data box and export a quality qr code image without considering the details of data type.
