Crystal Reports 11 and Bar39.ttf

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?

Thanks
Bill

Crystal is very particular about the barcode fonts.

This link has several barcode fonts that work with Crytsal
