Can I generate barcodes in Cognos?

I have read articles that mention creating barcodes in Cognos. Is it possible?

Although, IDAutomation does not have much experience using Cognos. The simplest solution for creating barcodes in Cognos is the Code 39 Barcode Font Package. Because Code 39 does not require a font encoder to format the data, it only requires asterisks around the data before the font is applied, it is compatible with Cognos applications.

To generate scannable Code 39 barcodes, append the data with asterisks.

Example:

To generate a barcode that scans as 123456, append asterisks to the value *123456* and apply the IDAutomation Code 39 font.
