Ford 2D PDF417 Barcode in Crystal Reports Packaging Label


We are doing business with FORD and they require a 2D barcode PDF417 on the packaging labels. We are using the PDF417 generator for Crystal Reports.
Specificatiosn are:
PDF417 ECC 3 0.254x0.762mm (0.010 x 0.030 inch)
Example of string
~6P1A2B3C4D5E6F7G<GS>Q999<GS>1JUN123456789A2B4C6D8E<GS>
20LA2B4C6D8E1F3G5<GS>21LA2B4C6D8E<GS> 7Q999GT<GS>15KA2B4C6D8E<GS>
BKLT1734<GS>14D03052001<GS>1TA2BC6D8E1F3G5H<GS>17D01012001

PDF417, with ECC 2, 12 columns two-dimensional symbology shall be used in accordance with ISO/IEC 15438 PDF417-Symbology Specification.
My question is how I build up the string and how do I add <GS>

Common non-printable characters:
GS - ~029
RS - ~030
EOT - ~004
TAB - ~009

Is this as simple as: ~6P1A2B3C4D5E6F7G~029 Q999~029 1JUN123456789A2B4C6D8E~02920LA2B4C6D8E1F3G5~029 21LA2B4C6D8E~0297Q999GT~029 15KA2B4C6D8E~029 BKLT1734~029 14D03052001~029 1TA2BC6D8E1F3G5H~029 17D01012001

Do you also have a crystal reports code snippet to fill the PDF417 barcode in Crystal Reports?

Best Answer

In most IDAutomation PDF417 products, you can use the tilde commands for functions such as GS. Make sure ApplyTilde is enabled. In the report, use the "&" symbol to connect multiple text and fields.
For example:
"static text" & "~029" & {Table.Field} & "~029" & ...

However, the PDF417 Font Formula for Crystal Reports is limited and does not contain the Apply Tilde feature. In this case you can use the Chr() function instead. For example:
"static text" & Chr(29) & {Table.Field} & Chr(29) & ...
