Bar code problem in CR 9.0

Hi Experts,
  I need help with with displaying readable barcode in Crystal report. I downloaded a free UFL from Azalea and a free font form . I followed the Business objects instructions on how to add barcodes to reports. The formula looks like this ;
// Formula to display code 128 barcodes with the Azalea barcode function.

It looks like it's printing the barcode in the report, but all the barcodes look the same to me. I'm doing this for the frist time, so I'm not sure what I'm getting is correct or not. I use the same Request number in the report but I have to do {Request.numb},0,"" to get the correct number. Do I need to do the same for the barcode? Also, When I print this report, the barcode doesn't look the same. It prints like 00000000000000 this why is that?
Please, let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

    Crystal is somewhat picky in the fonts that it works with.  See this link for Crystal compatible barcode fonts.  There are some free ones.

    Also the Azalea UFL may be Azalea font specific.

      I think you are correct. I tried a easier font ( c39 ) and used a formula and it worked.
      I was trying to do this simple and fee, since I'm using it in only one report.
    Thank you
