I have a crystal report that I am trying to get to print a bar code.   It actually prints a bar code but it doesn't seem to be readable.  I have crated a formula that looks like this to put work order number in format recommended by other people but have also tried this without the **

BarcodeC39(ToText ("*"&({MakeReadyMaster.WO_Number})&"*"))

It looks like a bar code but it ends up not being recognized when scanned.  

I am using the Code39AzaleaRegular2 as the fields font.

Any ideas.

thanks

I have seen that issue.

In some cases it is the bar code reader.  In others we had to format the field in a special way.  I wasn't involved in formatting the field so I don't know what they did.

We used the Free 3 of 9 fonts

Actually I got something to work, and it was relatively easy.  Don't worry about using the function in crystal reports just sent up something like this in a formula field.

ToText("*"+GroupName ({MakeReadyMaster.WO_Number})+"*")

Then use format field to change the font to code 3 of 9.

That was it.
