For those using Report Builder for Barcodes, what and where are you
getting all the correct fonts? I would need fonts for all the popular
codes.

http://www.bizfonts.com/ I aquired this link in my research. I don't know
all thier resources. At the moment our need is only code 3 of 9 (Not to
be confused with 7 of 9 our friendly neighborhood borg)

To anyone that is a bar code guru:

What's up with the postage stamp looking thing on our UPS sticker? It
supposedly holds "way more" info than the normal looking straight lines.

Is this something that may or could end up being used?

Would one of those "squares" of data accomodate an entire pack list, job
traveler, etc?

Just curious before I redesign some forms to fit in the regular type bar
codes.

TIA!

It's a 2 dimensional bar code (guess "bar code" is really a misnomer - it's
dots!) I don't know a whole lot of detail on them, but that might get you
Googling in the right direction. Yes, they have a much higher data density
and capacity than the old 1-D stripes. I've been told newer label
printers, like Zebra, have firmware built in or available as an add-on to
take care of the formatting.

Got more curious myself - here's a good 101:

Could somebody please send me a sample RB label in code 39? I'd like to see

This formula creates a string, that when printed in DataWorks Bar 39 yields
one barcode that outputs Job Number, Assembly & Operation in one scan. The
"*" are required at both ends (start/stop codes) and the $I decode into tab
characters.

"*" + JobOper.JobNum + "$I" + String(JobOper.AssemblySeq,">>9") + "$I" +
String(JobOper.OprSeq,">9999") + "$I*"

Here's a parameter passed to the report & output with a tab. If you want
Carriage Return (CR), use $M.

"*" + RUNTIME-PARAMETER("JobNum") + "$I*"

The $I and $M codes need to be present in the barcode font (they are in
DataWorks Bar 39) and the reader you are using must have this setting turned
on. On mine, it's called Full Ascii Code 39.

Hope this helps!

Wayne ... that link is WAY to much fun ... !!!

In fact, I think it's a keeper for all of us to have on hand next time
management thinks that Bar-Coding is a great and EASY idea.

We had a customer that wanted us to bar code their steel bars for them (
greasy, oily, scaly, etc ). When nothing would stick they asked us to just
stick the bar code labels on the pallets or banding. When those fell of
due to - dust, water, 60 mile/hr wind on the back of the truck etc, they
asked us to use shrink wrap around the labels. Of course, their receiving
people couldn't "Read" the labels through the shrink wrap so they have to
cut open the shrink wrap to get to the labels. I doubt either company
saved any money in the process. But heck, it was a great idea ...

Then you have the AIAG labels that we used for a number of companies. It's
a pretty decent "Standard" ... that is, if our customers would remember that
it is supposed to be a "Standard" and quite trying to improve on it. I
have a number of different formats that we use - 1 is the original standard
- the rest are only good for individual companies. Oh well ...

Thanks Wayne !

Todd
