^XF

The
^XF
command recalls a stored format to be merged with variable data. There can be multiple
^XF
commands in one format, and they can be located anywhere within the code.

Recall Format

When recalling a stored format and merging data using the
^FN
(Field Number) function, the calling format must contain the
^FN
command to merge the data properly.
While using stored formats reduces transmission time, no formatting time is saved. The ZPL II format being recalled is saved as text strings that need to be formatted at print time.
