    Hi

    Just check with the BASIS guys If this printer supports Barcode printing. That is important for it to print barcodes.

    Vishwa.

    Hi,

    Find out whether the barcode font that you have used for printing the bar code is installed in the printer output.

    For this you need to go to transaction SPAD (Spool Administration).

    Click on Display for Output Device (or choose menu Configuration->Output Devices).

    Select the Output device and check to see if the font is installed.

    If it is not there then contact the BASIS for help in installation.

    Also the following device types are handled for printing bar codes:

    - All PCL5 device types (for example, BRHL, CAN105, HPLJ8000, LEXT622, OKI6100)

    - All PostScript device types (for example, POSTSCPT, POST2)

    - All Kyocera PRESCRIBE device types (for example, KYOFS150, KYOFS170)

    - All device types for Windows printing (for example, SAPWIN, SWIN, I2SWIN, JPSAPWIN, CNSAPWIN)

    Please check to see if the output device is capable of printing the bar code

    1. Download freely available true type barcode fonts from internet.

    2. Upload them to sap using standard transaction SE73. Give the name for that font family say Zbar.

    3. Go to standard transaction SE71 (SAP Script maintenance), open the form from where the barcode is printed.

    4. Add new character format in the form say <ZC> and attach the font family which we have created (Zbar) using SE73 transaction.

    5. Prefix and suffix u2018*u2019 to the text which we need as barcode in output and place it int character format <ZC> which we have defined previously.

    6. This will solve the barcode printing problem from SAP Script.
