    Hi Grettel,

    The barcode can be printed in any printer , only issue here would be to add the barcode format & install driver to the printer which will be taken care by the basis team.

    Procedure to print barcode :

    In smartstyles (Tcode:smartstyles)

    Create character format name B1(say)

    Use the Barcode option in the Standard setting tab .

    U can select any barcode which suits your requirement

    Once the barcode charaterformat is created in smartstyles then use the character format in your smartform

    In smart form

    text element 1 :

    • This is the barcode <B1>this is the barcode</>

    • Value of a variable <B1>V_VAR1</>

    Reward if u find it useful

    In my experience, printing barcode using this Intermec printer, you have to use some scripts that is recognized by the printer.

    There is a barcode studio to layout the barcode that you want to print, an d then you can generate the script within it.

    You then have to take this script and implement it to your smartforms
