IDAutomation's Dynamic Barcode Generator Service can generate Linear, Data Matrix, QR Code, Aztec, and other barcodes in Cognos through its DataItem.

The example assumes a database is already created and that the Linear barcode URL will be used to generate the barcode using fields.
http://www.bcgen.com/demo/linear-dbgs.aspx?

The fields currently include Product Line, ProductType, Product Name, and Description.
An additional field, Product Number, will be converted to the barcode by setting it to the D parameter (D is DataToEncode).

(1) Design the report and drag the fields to the report.


(2) With the Query open, click the Insertable Objects tab.


(3) Drag Query Calculation into the Query.

(4) The Data Item expression dialog will open. Name the Data Item Barcode and enter URL (Hosted) and fields to use.
Add the Hosted Service URL
• The D parameter is the Data To Encode. It is set to the
product number field from the Products table.

• The S parameter sets the Barcode Symbology. It is set to 1 for Code 39 Extended.
