Best Answer

When generating a barcode using a font, it requires the
(1) Barcode Font
(2) Barcode Font Encoder

A font encoder is a tool that formats the data before the barcode font is applied to the data. If this is missing, the barcode will not be scannable.

What is the purpose of a font encoder?

For Oracle Reports we have a font encoder PLL that is supplied in our Developer Tools Font Developer License; we do not have a version to test.

If PLLs are not compatible with Oracle EBS, I am not quite sure what font encoder you might be able to use. If it can use a java class, then that might be an option. The java class is also only supplied with a Developer License and up.

Fareed,

Unfortunately, there is no way to skip the encoding process. Please review my first response, it mentions that there are two components required to generate a scannable barcode: (1) the barcode font such as IDAutomationSC128M and a font encoder. If you do not have a font encoder or do not encode your data, it will not be able to produce a scannable barcode.

If the barcode is not visible when you apply the font, verify that the barcode font is actually installed. If it is not scanning, then the data is not encoded using a font encoder. The data must be encoded in order to create a scannable barcode.

When I refer to barcode font, it is the IDAutomationSC128M/IDAutomationC128M which is the Code 128 font within the Code 128 Font Package.
