    Hi Prasad,

    goto se73 then enter in change mode for systaen barcodes,

    create ur zbarcode type or change the existing with your requirement,

    in the barcode details u have an option like ROTATION (90, 180,360..)(if old one)

    OR

    if u r creating a new one then , u need to define the type of barcode

    and option like INVERTED, NORMAL,.....(choose the suitable format)

    feel free to reply for any further clarifications..

    hope it ill solve ur problem.

    Regards ,

    Hi,

    There are two types are barcode existing in sap like system barcode and printer barcode. Use Tcode SE73 to create any of those.

    If you want to create your own customized barcode then you have to opt system barcode. Here while creating barcode it will ask whether to create new barocde or copy of existing barcode.

    However by taking into consideration your requirement, you have to create system bar code.

    Goto SE73->System barcode->change-> create new barcode->New barcode technology.

    Here you have to mention barcode name and short text. then supported barcode symbology like C39,C128, code93 etc.

    After selecting any of the symbology, you have to choose Bar Code Alignment: like normal. inverted, etc. Then specify other barcode parameters like height,width, barcode ratio etc.

    Then try to print any text element with this customized barcode as per your requirement.

    Like you can print text element with smartform style, here you can include your customized created barcode in character format. While creating charactor format, give name of your customized barcode in standard setting->name.

    Then print text element by using smartform style.

    Hope this works for you.

    Thanks.......

      Hi Print controls can be specified in smartform by using command node.

      In command node u have an option of specifying the print control directly.
