Steps
1.      RDP into report server
2.      Run report
3.      Barcode displays
4.      Click Print Preview or Print
5.      Numbers display instead of barcode

My Microsoft Reporting Services barcode displays on screen, but fails via "print preview"

The barcode fonts are installed on server and client, both machines have been rebooted.

How can I fix without spending over $100 for a 3rd party tool like the below ?

When I add an image to my report and use this expression for the image (set source to External):
="http://www.barcodesinc.com/generator/image.php?code=abc&style=197&type=C128B&width=200&height=50&xres=1&font=3"

Open in new window

I get an image of a barcode on my report.
Use this page to configure the barcode:

I get a RED "X" after running the report using your code, I then retested with the attached and it also fails.

How can I fix ?

I haven't tested it so my expression might be wrong. If it is put the expression in a text box so you can see what the result is (and what's wrong with it).
