Printing Barcodes with Foxpro and R&R

Post by cmullin » Fri Jan 26, 2018 4:24 pm


I'm using Visual Foxpro v9 and R&R ReportWorks v12 to print reports, and would like to include (linear) barcodes. Does anyone have experience with a reliable solution that would integrate into my application?

You can embed barcodes in R&R if you have the appropriate font. I've worked on several reporting solutions for clients that used barcodes and the primary issue was determining the appropriate start / end characters for the sequence in the format you're looking to use.

Typically, you'd use a font like "AMEX CODE 128" R&R will render them fine since it's just a standard TrueType font.

There are good resources online for the formatting you need around the core data you're barcoding.
