Variable barcode not working

I am trying to generate a variable barcode using Pitstop Pro Server 20.
I am adding the variable number in Switch using a submit point.

I have created a variable set and by type I made it "text with variables". Under action list, I am adding a barcode (type 39) made it variable and pointing it to the variable set name I created. My color and position is correct. I discovered if I disable the variable feature, my barcode appears on the page, but as soon as I make it variable, it does not appear. The preflight report that inserted on Switch has the following result "Barcode Code 39 Failed (Error: No barcode data)", but in the submit point I have added the number I need the barcode to be.

Hope I get this resolved.

How is the variable type defined, is it text or a number?
For a barcode it should be text.
