Barcode UCC128 / UPC-A

Hi - Navision US supplies us with some barcode fonts (For AD), However I can’t find anywhere that will help printing. i.e. a 0 in the 6th position in a UPC-A should be converted to a :. I have done a Codeunit to do this transfer, and it works. But Now I also have to do the UCC128, wich seems a little more complicated. Have anyone else allready done this, or do I have to do it my self :slight_smile: - I’m rather busy right now, so I would REALLY appreciate if anyone could place that in Download. However I will submit my codeunit with the UPC-A and UCC128 when I’m done. (I also have a EAN somewhere in a drawer, wich I will be posting later :slight_smile: /Henrik

The fonts I got from Navision US were dBest barcode fonts (I think that’s were they came from, I got them indirectly). This library also contains a dll to do the string conversion for UCC-128 (as well as others). As you said, writing a codeunit is extremely tough, so the easiest thing would be to write a wrapper in vb around the included dll and add that wrapper as an automation object to your report.

I’ve not used the barcode fonts that came with NAD but I have done a codeunit for EAN8/13/128, UPC-A, I2/5, Code39 etc. using the Datascan fonts ( Their documentation is very good so it was quite an easy task. I haven’t posted it because I suspect that not many people have the fonts to go with it! Cheers, John

We have done the legwork for using barcodes in Navision. There is a single “setup” that installs the fonts that are necessary and registers the .dll. It integrates seamlessly with Navision Financials without your having to write the Visual Basic or C++ code. This solution allows you to call the barcode routines directly from C/AL in the following formats: Code 39 Extended Code 39 Code 128 Interleaved 2/5 Codabar Postnet UPC / EAN There is no use of bitmap files, so response is speedy. If you would like additional information, please email me directly.

Thank you all for Your replies - And Rick - please feel free to post Your stuff in the Download Forum :slight_smile: /Henrik
