Crystal Report 2011 cannot use Code 128 font but only Universal font

I followed the tutorial of Crystal Report UFL under Crystal 2011. In the "Change to Barcode" dialog, there has no "Code 128" font but all are the Universal fonts. It work if I select any one of the Universal font from the dialog.

But as I also need Word mail merge functionality which needs Code 128 font. It seems not reasonable to purchase two fonts that I supposed the Code 128 font should work for these two requirements (Crystal Report 2011 and Work mail merge).

I tried the steps listed in "Crystal Report 7 to 11" as below but it fails.

1. Add a formula field with content : IDAutomation_Code128 ("0")
2. Change the font to "IDAutomationSC128S DEMO"
3. The barcode cannot be scanned successfully
4. Change the font to Arial, the content is ?1? which seems incorrect

I tried the same steps on Crystal Report 11 and it works correctly.

And I found in
Code 128 spec that the purchased font name and evaluation font name are different (IDAutomationC128XS vs. IDAutomationSC128XS). Is this related?

Operating System: Windows 7

After purchased the Code 128 font and use it instead of the evaluation one, the problem has been resolved once. The Code 128 font now is shown in the "Change to Barcode" dialog.

I believe this sounds like a codepage issue. The answer described in another issue at https://support.idautomation.com/Word-Add-in/Problem-for-Word-mail-merge-for-MS-Excel-Worksheets-via-DDE-using-code-128/_1329 should solve your problem.
