    Hi,

    For printing barcodes you have to use seperate printers like ZEBRA . You have to install the driver program for the printer.

    Thanks,

    NN.

    Barcode Lable and Barcode Dailog

    A barcode label is a special symbology to represent human readable information such as a material number or batch number

    in machine readable format.

    There are different symbologies for different applications and different industries. Luckily, you need not worry to much about that as the logistics supply chain has mostly standardized on 3 of 9 and 128 barcode symbologies - which all barcode readers support and which SAP support natively in it's printing protocols.

    You can print barcodes from SAP by modifying an existing output form.

    Behind every output form is a print program that collects all the data and then pass it to the form. The form contains the layout as well as the font, line and paragraph formats. These forms are designed using SAPScript (a very easy but frustratingly simplistic form format language) or SmartForms that is more of a graphical form design tool.

    Barcodes are nothing more than a font definition and is part of the style sheet associated with a particular SAPScript form. The most important aspect is to place a parameter in the line of the form that points to the data element that you want to represent as barcode on the form, i.e. material number. Next you need to set the font for that parameter value to one of the supported barcode symbologies.

    for your reference check the below links:

    for smart, please check the below link:

    http://www.sap-img.com/abap/questions-about-bar-code-printing-in-sap.htm

    See the below program forbarcode in sapscript for your reference:

    DATA: BAR_CODE1(16) VALUE `ABC01230123A01'

    NEW-PAGE PRINT ON IMMEDIATELY `X'.

    FORMAT COLOR OFF INTENSIFIED OFF.

    If the barcode is the first element on the page, the following Write

    statement is needed (otherwise you get a date in the first print

    control.

    WRITE:/

    Turn on the barcode font, print the data, and switch back to the

    printer's default font. Be sure to use NO-GAP to avoid unwanted

    characters or CR/LF.

    PRINT-CONTROL FUNCTION `BCPFX'

    WRITE: BAR_CODE1 NO-GAP

    PRINT-CONTROL FUNCTION `BCSFX'

    Add a Write statement to prevent insertion of CR/LF into the barcode.

    WRITE:/

    Sample SAPSCRIPT

    Variable BAR_CODE1 contains the barcode data, including asterisks.

    The & is needed to avoid unwanted spaces or CR/LF characters

    /E LINE

    /: PRINT-CONTROL BCPFX

    = &BAR_CODE1&

    /: PRINT-CONTROL BCSFX

    A barcode label is a special symbology to represent human readable information such as a material number or batch number in machine readable format.

    A barcode solution consists of the following:

    a barcode printer

    a barcode reader

    a mobile data collection application/program

    Creating Bar code:

    -->From trans code - SPAD -> Full Administration -> Click on Device Type -> Double click the device for which you wish to create the print control -> Click on Print Control tab ->Click on change mode -> Click the plus sign to add a row or prefix say SBP99 (Prefix must start with SBP) -> save you changes , it will ask for request -> create request and save

    --> when you go to SE73 if you enter SBP00 for you device it will add the newly created Prefix

    -->Create a character format C1.Assign a barcode to the character format.Check the check box for the barcode.

    -->The place where you are using the field value use like this

    <C1> &itab-field& </C1>.

    You will get the field value in the form of barcode.

    Which barcode printer are you using ? Can you download this file and see.

    It will give an idea about barcode commands.
