Distribution of Universal Fonts

I need to distribute the fonts with a Crystal Report file in Crystal Report 8.5, so I was following the steps in the manual and only installed the fonts and the dll called IDAutomationNativeFontEncoder.dll into the destination computer. But when the program called the report, it showed me an error because the function used in the report was not supporting the format used (IDAutomation_Uni_C128). So what do I need to do with distributing my report with the fonts and dll? What is the name of the dll file? Into which folder I need to copy the files?

Operating System: XP, VB 6 and Crystal Report 8.5

Best Answer

I suggest you try the Crystal Reports Barcode Formula (that was included in your download).

Here are the advantages:

* Easily create barcodes in Crystal Reports using fonts without installing UFLs or DLLs.

* Embeds font formatting technology where formulas are saved as part of the report file (.rpt) and do not have any external dependencies apart from the required barcode font.

* Compatible with Crystal 8 and up.

* Supports Generation of Code 128, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5, UPC, EAN, Postnet, Planet, Data Matrix, PDF417 and other barcode types.

* Report Custom Functions may be created from IDAutomation's formulas and placed into the Repository of Custom Functions.

Do you have a library to get the Code128 in SQL Server 2005 to simulate the same functionality like the function called IDAutomation_Uni_C128?. So I can only send the values to Crystal report and display the barcode with the universal fonts than I have?

I can't use the functionality that you recommend, because the formula shows me an error message in the function called "AscW", this is because Crystal report 8.5 doesn't support this function. So can you help me to convert this function to be supported in Crystal Report 8.5? or you can give me the list of dll's and font's files that I need to distribute with my application?
