    Printer Bar Codes

    u201CPrinter bar codesu201D are bar codes that are specific to a specific printer. These bar codes

    actually have the commands and parameters hard coded for each separate bar code

    symbology and derivative. This is known as SAPu2019s u201Cold bar code technology.u201D You will

    also need to create new u201Cprinter bar codesu201D if you wish to change any parameters such as

    ratio, narrow bar width, or height. You should try and avoid this u201Cold technologyu201D if


    System Bar Codes

    u201CSystem bar codesu201D can either use the u201Cold barcode technology u201Cand use a specific

    u201Cprinter bar codeu201D based on the device type selected, or alternatively use the u201Cnew bar

    code technology.u201D We recommend that you use u201Cnew technologyu201D if possible as this has

    many advantages:

    u2022 Does not require the creation of u201Cprinter bar codesu201D for every single possible

    device type being used

    u2022 Does not require knowledge of the printeru2019s command language.

    u2022 You can preview the bar code (SAP NetWeaver 04 onwards)

    u2022 This can also be rendered on non-Zebra printers (although as a graphic)
