Hi there,
I am very new with CR so if my question seems little stupid, please excuse me.

I  managed to design a report which prints values read from DB on a 5X10 label paper. one of the value is string and there is no problem with it. other one is smallint and the font for this is Bar39.ttf

when I print the labels, my scanner doesn't read the barcodes. Any idea why?

    Crystal is very particular about the barcode fonts.

    This link has several barcode fonts that work with Crytsal
