Encoding Number Fields without Commas in Crystal


I am trying to create a QR barcode inside of Crystal Reports 10, When I create a standard barcode, I can tell the system that the barcode does not get commas by telling the system to show as plain text. When I create a QR Barcode, I cannot tell it to show as plain text. How do I do this?

Operating System: Windows 10

Application: Crystal Reports 10, latest IDAutomation QR Barcode dll

We attempted to re-create the issue by importing your CSV file but setting it to a Text object field instead. The comma occurs even in a non-IDAutomation barcode field. This means that there is a problem conversion from the initial application to CSV or from CSV to Crystal Reports. In our chat, we also worked with hard coded data and the barcode scanned correctly. This test confirms that the barcode encoder is not the problem.

I recommend once again reaching out to SAP to find out why a CSV converted data may have a format change during importation.

Our barcode components encode any data that is sent to it as text. Try to display your data first in a plain text field without modifying the properties of the text object. Once you get the data to display correctly, encode that data in the barcode.

This is not an answer to the question. The problem is it is automatically adding commas into the numbers.

If you are using the latest version in Crystal, we recommend using the Crystal Font Formula instead of the UFL. When using the font formula, you can use the ToText() function to convert number fields to text. For example:
DataToEncode = ToText({Table.NumberField})

You can also modify "EncodingModes" in the optional parameters section which can filter out certain characters, 0=Binary (default), 1=0nly numbers & uppercase letters, and 2=Numbers only.
