QR codes

We need to generate QR code in SAP for a printed invoice. 

For electronic invoicing, we require an older version (IEC 18004:2000) and SAP does not support this version anymore. what are our options? We got the following reply from SAP,

"In this case, a proposed solution to generate the QR Code is to use a Java free library of Google based on input data . The library could be called from an ABAP as an OS command and generate the image in a specified path. The image can be then imported to SAP to be included in the smartform."

I have looked at some blogs(those from Robert Russell) and trying to understand the methodology. Was wondering if anyone recently did QR code generation in SAP? and the steps that were followed?

    Hello Krish,

    SAP note 179534 describes the procedure to design labels in Zebra program and upload into SAP via sapscript form. The device type LB_ZEB should be used.

    My favourite method!

    How to create a QR code and show it in a Smartform

    Since it's free, the author gives all the code you need, and you don't need to install additional software.

    The biggest "gotcha" is that the SAP system needs to be able to connect to the internet, but that's kind of useful anyway! 😊
