Best Answer

When a barcode font is embedded in a PDF, the PC that is used to view the report does not need to have the font installed for the report to display the barcode. IDAutomation provides font embedding privileges with all Developer Licensed font packages. When exporting to a PDF, the following will ensure the barcode font is also embedded:

1.
Extract the TrueType fonts from the zip file of a Developer Licensed font package.

2.
Install the TrueType version of the font ending in TTF on the Report Server. Only the TTF fonts can be embedded in the PDF.

3.
Install the SSRS Font Encoder in the report.

4.
Be sure the font is referenced by an item that has the Hidden property set to False.

5.
Reboot the report server so that the font cache is refreshed by the PDF generator.
