Best Answer

The Code 128 Font Package with a font encoder--Font Formulas (included with package) or UFL (free download)--will generate alphanumeric barcodes within Crystal Reports. However, depending on the amount of data, it may be too wide for your label. If so, consider the Data Matrix Font and Encoder Advantage package which also includes a font formula.

A font encoder (font tool) is an add-in, plug-in, or stand alone tool designed to format data for a barcode. Data formatting may include adding start/stop characters (tells the scanner when to begin and end a scan) and/or calculating a check character (to ensure the barcode is properly created).
