WWI Barcode Printing

Hi Experts,

I am trying to print barcodes via WWI labels. As suggested in the documentation, I have done all the necessary steps that are a prerequisite for barcode labels:

The barcode font code 39(downloaded from a free website -- test purpose only) is installed on both front end as well the WWI server.

A copy of Conversion method C128_DUMMY_CONVERSION_METHOD is attached to the symbol so as to concatenate '*' at the start and end of the symbol value.

The symbol is included in the template with the code 39 font.

The print preview is working fine but when i try to print this on the printer that value is coming instead of the printer. If I am not wrong there is no printer specific setting involved here so the barcode should have printed as desired.

Can any one please help me identify the problem here?

Thanks,

Navjot

    Hi Navjot,

    The software which you have downloaded from free website, may limited to the print preview.

    Print preview, is just a preview without wwi generation process involved.

    You can contact SAP for the licensed software called "genifix",

    to implement Genefix, you have to do couple of activities -

    1. Implement the BADI - EHSS_WWI_BADI_001

    2. couple of Notes to be implemented to control/prevent the errors.

    3. To work with genefix, you must install the latest version of wwi (service pack 17 or latest than that).

    4. After implementing the above BADI, you will find couple of additional tabs in CG42 related to Barcode.

    5. check the BC set release checks, if necesary adapt the SAP NOte - 649918

    6. After implementing the genefix, do some macro settings in MS word.

    Regards

      Hi Navjot,

      WWI/GLM is supporting barcode fonts.

      You have to install the barcode font also on the WWI server.

      Are you generating the print preview with GLM (CBGL_MP01). This preview is generated on the WWI server, but a preview in CG42 is a local generation on your pc.

      Also a printout is generated on the WWI server. So in that case I would suggest to check the installation of the barcode font on the WWI server.

      Regards,

      Mike

    Hi Navjot Sharma,

    You said "A copy of Conversion method C128_DUMMY_CONVERSION_METHOD is attached to the symbol so as to concatenate '*' at the start and end of the symbol value.can you please tell me what change exactly you did in copied version C128_DUMMY_CONVERSION_METHOD and how you concatenated start and end symbol.

    Hi Kamal Ravirerkula,

    By going through the forum, it is learned that there are two options to print the bar code in WWI,

    i. Using Fonts

    ii. Using Bar code interface.

    Can you explain how to use bar code interface..? Is it mandatory to buy "genifix to use Bar code interface ?

    or

    by just implementing the above said BADI, "EHSS_WWI_BADI_001" can we use bar code interface with any bar code library ?

    If we implement that BADI or implement "genifix", would we have another expansion mode as "bar code" in report symbol tab along with Expansion modes, "Without", "GPC", "IT", "NM"

    Regards,
