Has anyone ever used 'code 128' barcode font? If so where did you get it from and did you ever have any problems using it. I downloaded a UFL from ID Automation. It supplies formulas and font types for the barcode but when used I get a memory full error. I'm not sure what the problem could be, maybe somebody here experienced the same thing. The report will be displayed in the .NET crystal reports as well. Any help would be appreciated and just ask for any clarifications if needed.

I haven't bought the font yet, it's between azalea and IDAutomation. I downloaded the samples and they seemed to work only on and off which was annoying. I'm tempted to go with Azalea since they have support for 8.5 which we use here alot. In this case it's going to be viewed throught the .NET Crystal Report Viewer. Are there any issues with it showing these types of fonts? Are they installed the same way? When I used the samples thought CR 8.5 I got it to show the demo versions but the .NET Report Viewer wouldn't show them it simply showed the text in the default font, even though it gave me the option to set the font to the barcode samples, maybe the files should be placed somewhere else as well? Again, any advice or help would be very appreciated. Thanks for all the comments so far.

I have bought the ID Automation, I have a barcode report that we print and put into our envalopes for shipping.

I am using IDAutomationFontEncoderCode128a ({spname.upc}) in a formula editor to display the barcodes. Check how you are displaying the barcode fonts. It is fairly easy processs. After you have bought the barcodes  and installed the software, you see the barcode UFL functions in the formula editor. Then the hard part is to find the font that the scanner that you are using will recognize. That took me a little bit time but other than that, it should work.

It also helped me to go to ID automation web site and what the yoffer.

While I have you here I might as well ask another related question. When the labels are printed they are 1.25 inches from the top of the label even though I've set all margins to 0. Have you ever come across this problem?

I probably shouldn't have asked the second question here. I'll post it separately, thanks for the help.

Crystal is highly dependent on the printer driver. Check your default settings. That ususally creates the problem

Glad to help
