PDF417 - [The CodeText is not valid for Text Compaction Mode]


I am trying to generate a PDF 417 code using .net library but when the text includes a apostrophe (’) , I get the following error message:

[The CodeText is not valid for Text Compaction Mode. Try use the binary compaction mode instead.]

If I change the mode to Binary compaction mode, the same error occurs.

Is there a way around this?
