Help! Does anyone know about bar codes?

I'm having some problems that I hope someone can help me with.

I am trying to scan a series of reference numbers that are all in the following format:


When I convert these to 3 of 9 bar code and add the start and end characters it won't scan - if I drop the initial '-' off it works perfectly.

So far I've changed the scaling to 150% and 26pt which scans perfectly without the - but refuses to scan with it.

I've also tried adding '!' as the start and end character instead of '*'

Please can anyone help!

sounds like the 3of9 standard does not allow a non numeric value in that bit.
