Barcode printing in 4.7 possible or not ?

Hi All,

We are working in 4.7 environment .We want to generate the barcode in a script for an invoice number. I heard from some of my friends that barcode printing is not supported in a script from 4.7 .In 4.7 we need to use a smart form for that.Please let me know if it the same or not ?

Regards

    Hi Jyothi,

    Whether it script or smartform it is possible.

    If it script then create a character format in that character format select

    which barcode you want to print generally everybody use bc_cd39 i.e. code 39

    else ask your client which barcode they need or else if in any form they are getting the print consider the barcode from that form.

    after selecting the barcode in the character format

    in the window where you want to show the barcode write as

    <C1>& & </>

    in first angular brackets give your character format you created here like i am taking c1

    and in between the place holders give the field name of your invoice number.

    please let me know still you have any issues

    if helpful reward points

    Regards,

    Phani

    Hi Jyothi,

    Barcode printing is supported by the earlier versions of SAP including 3.1i also.Ofcourse some device types need to be added in the system using the help of basis guys.

    It doesn't much bother whether it is a Sapscript or a Smartform. Both can print barcodes. The only pre-requisite is the printer should be capable of printing the barcodes.

    In some cases, though the Sapscript generates the barcode (you can view this using the Print Preview), when you try to print, the printer will not print the text/matter in the barcode format. So, the printer should support too.

    Hope this helps.

    Please reward if useful.

    Thanks,

    Srinivasa

    Hope this helps.
