Search the board; such a question has been asked and answered before.

In a few words: install a barcode font and use it in Paper Layout Editor, while creating the report (just as you'd use Courier or Tahoma or ...). One of these fonts is IDAutomation.com Code39; it requires '*' sign as a prefix and a suffix of the string you are displaying as a barcode (otherwise barcode readers might not be able to read it).

Here's just an example created on Scott's EMP table; "empno" column is displayed as a number and as a barcode.

./fa/5277/0/

This is a query used to create such an output:
select empno, 
       '*' || empno || '*' empno_barcode, 
       ename
from emp

So - did you add asterisks (*) before and after the code? (Can't view the RDF at the moment to check it myself.)

Dear Sir,

We have tried with * as prefix and suffix and also tried with *# and #* as prefix and suffix but it didn't work. Barcode is getting generated but the Scanner is not reading the same. We are using Report Builder6i.

I have already sent you a rdf it was without any suffix or prefix. The same is sent to you again. Please see if you can help us.

Regards,

Sanjay Chatterjee

It is weekend; I'm at home and I don't have barcode scanner here. I'll try to open the RDF you have attached on Monday, print a test page and see whether I can scan it or not.

Though, I believe I don't have IDAutomation code 128 font; is there a free version of the same? If so, please, attach it to your next message. Do NOT attach a commercial version.

Dear Sir,

I have generated a Report with Barcode which is getting printed on Laser Printers but not getting printed with Barcode Printers. Barcode Printers are Tharmal Printer. We are using following printers here

1. Thermal Transfer Printer Z4M Plus Make : Zebra
2. Thermal Transfer Printer TLP 2844 Make : Zebra


Please advice

Dear Sir,

Can you send me the Oracle Function to convert a string Barcode with Symbology Code 39.

Please note that I don't need the symbology with Mod 43.

Regards,
Sanjay Chatterjee

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what you are saying. Terms as "symbology code 39" or "symbology with mod 43" are unknown to me. What "Oracle function" are you talking about? A built-in one? If it exists, I can't recall its name. If it is a user-defined one, what should it do?
