    • Hi Satish,

      Please note my first point. You cannot print barcode if you don't satisfy this condition.

      1. Whether the printer supports Barcode. If it does not support barcode, then you will need to buy a DIMM card or barcode.dll file. You can get a demo file from net.

      Feel Free to revert back.

      I think this will be very helpful... 😉

    Hi,

    Import the Barcodes Fonts to SAP thru' SE73.

    Create Character formats with Barcode fonts, that you have imported.

    Configured the Device type in SAP (Usually done by basis).

    and All you need to check is

    1. Whether the printer supports Barcode. If it does not support barcode, then you will need to buy a DIMM card or barcode.dll file. You can get a demo file from net.

    2. You need to install DIMM Card to your printer. or You need to install Barcode.dll file in SAPLpd directory in the front end PC.

    or

    3. You can buy software that you can upload in your SAP print Server that will convert the barcode symbology as an image that will print on a regular laser printer. But option results in less sharper barcodes. This option is really if you need to convert a large quantity of printers (>10) to support barcodes.

    For complete information always you can go to SAP Help.

    Hi,

    In print preview u cant able to see the barcode, i mean u can able to view the barcode but not the exact bars and all.

    Even u print the printpreview , barcode will not appear on normal printer.

    In order to get the barcode printed, u have to use the either specialized barcode printer or in order to priont on the normal laser printer, u have to install the third party software or barcode.dll so that the barcode gets printed on the normal printer as well..

    Cheers,

    Simha.
