Barcoding Again!

More on barcoding today but I think this will be it ... read on!

I have been exchanging emails with Nisha from the warm and sunny town of St.Petersburg That should have been enough of a clue for you to realize I did not mean the cooler and only slightly less sunny Russian city of the same name. Im talking about the Floridian 'St Pete'. Geography lesson over ... we have been talking barcodes, more specifically advanced barcodes, in fact the Code128 variety.

Those of you that have used these barcodes will know that the data needs to be encoded before applying the barcode font. you will also know that you need to write and mount some java code for us to call so the data can be encoded. I think Nisha will not mind me saying that she was a java novice between her, Kevin in Oracle support and myself, Nisha now has Code128 barcodes coming out on their outputs in E Business Suite.

So what? I hear you cry, 'you've written loads of articles on barcoding.' Well once we had gotten things sorted out, I cheekily asked Nisha to come up with a small doc on the process that was followed to get the barcodes out on to the paper. It seems the solution is somewhat broken up and spread out. Unbelievably, Nisha stepped up and wrote a document for us. Im very grateful.

Get the real Barcoding 101 for EBS here!
Yes, its specific to Nisha's requirement and yours might vary a little but its a good guide on what you need to do to get everything up and in the right place to get advanced barcoding working. Its written by someone that actually needed to get it into production, rather than us writing what we think you need. Maybe we should send developers to customers before they write a jot of code and then send them again afterward so that they know what its like to use their software. Anyhoo, thanks Nisha, you rock!

Comments:

You could also use a barcode font to print the barcodes. This would relieve you from doing all the java coding. Let me know if I can be of any help with this.

I have read several barcoding articles and almost have it working but when I test the code it has the start,stop and sum bit as caps vs lower case. Can anyone help? Thanks

Hi, My rtf is encoding the barcode correctly but with the packaged font supplied with BI publisher (128R00.ttf) the start, end and some other special characters are not printing in the barcode format, why would this be the case?
