QR Code With Arabic String Characters Scanning Incorrectly



I have been building a few QR Codes based in Crystal Reports 2016 and I have a client who has a few fields that can contain a combination of Arabic letters and standard numbers. I have been able to produce the QR Codes with no issues, insert Arabic Text titles, which all export correctly. Additionally, when I insert the formulas/tables that contain the mixed Arabic characters and standard numbers into the Crystal Report, they appear correctly before I convert them to a QR Code. When I go to scan a QR Code that contains one of those fields that combines Arabic letters and standard numbers (0-9,) the return from the scanner is showing incorrectly. It is a combination of question marks, English letters and other symbols.

I have done extensive research on this and cannot figure it out. Does anyone have any ideas?
