Printing Barcodes and MICR Checks with Crystal Reports

3 January 2003

Issue Description

Displaying specific fields as Barcodes or MICR on a Crystal Report.

Solution

Crystal Reports can include barcoded fields, and these are supported by Forms Printer. In order to print barcodes, you must have an installed windows Barcode font such as a 3 of 9 Barcode font.

Installable windows Barcode and MICR fonts are available from the following Web Sites**:
http://www.datascan.co.uk/micrfont.htm
http://www.micrencodingfonts.com/index.html

**Please note that these sites are provided as examples, and that Accountable Software does not support, promote or endorse any of the listed Organizations, their products or Web Sites. Once a barcode font is installed, a calculated field can be created in the Crystal Report using the StringToCode39, for example: StringToCode39 ({SOP10200.ITEMNMBR}) or other formulas.
