Best Answer

Using either the Data Matrix Font and Encoder for Windows or the Data Matrix Font and Encoder Advantage Package, there are two solutions that use the Data Matrix fonts: (1) the UFL solution and the (2) Font Formula solution.

Both solutions are located in a file named Crystal Reports Formulas.rpt within the product Integration folder.

The UFL solution uses a combination of a formula that passes parameters and a UFL to perform the calculation of the encoded data.

The font formula is code that is directly inserted into Crystal's formula editor. For this solution, review this post.


HOW TO GENERATE DATA MATRIX BARCODES USING THE UFL?

1. Download, extract, and install the Data Matrix Font Package. The installation will properly install the UFL dll.

2. Navigate to the Integration folder of the Data Matrix Font Package.

3. Open the Crystal Font Formulas.rpt file.

4. The report includes the Native Font Formulas object on the left and the UFL on the Right.
