Hi,



I have downloaded Barcode True Type Font from internet and wanted to use it in a report.

In the report, there is a input parameter which I'm printing at the footer of the report every page. So, I have added the item in the margin and changed the FONT to code128 which I have downloaded.

When I generate the report, the PDE gun we are using to scan the barcode does not recognize it. I try to generate barcode online for the same passed parameter and print/scan with the same PDE gun, it gets recognized.

Attached copies of barcode generated from report and online for the same input parameter passed

Try to enclose the string into asterisk. For example, now you are doing this:
select my_barcode_column bcd
from some_table
Instead, do this:
select '*' || my_barcode_column || '*' bcd
from some_table

128 True type Font always need to be encoded so that the barcode generated can be recognised by a barcode reader(unlike 39 Font type). Due to this, we have dependency on a third party encoder software.

Hence we have decided to use the barcode generated using the 39 TTF font type.

Thanks
