VFP, Crystal Reports, & Barcoding

Microsoft Visual FoxPro - Programmer Exchange

Dan
I understand that this is not exactly a foxpro question, but I would like to
call upon your experience again to get the best educated answer I can.

I am using VFP 8 with Crystal Reports 8.5 for the reporting.  I would like
to do barcoding (inventory), but I am not sure what barcodes (what company)
I should purchase them from.  As I understand, all I need is a barcode font.

Does anyone have a good set of barcodes that they would suggest?

Thx for help,
Dan Tallent

Hi Dan

Before buying anything, I would go to the Download section of 
www.universalthread.com and choose VFP as the product. Look at the 
following download files:


"How to use Barcode Fonts with FoxPro"  Download ID 9901

"Barcode Font"  Download ID 9121

"Code39"  Download ID 9177

I have not heard of any one using them with with Crystal Reports, but I 
would give them a try. 

I hope this helps.

I looked them over, one of them looks promising for use with Crystal.
The contact information seems a bit out of date, and it is not freeware.

Dan,

I'm sure there are barcodefonts for free
on the internet.
I've got mine for free.
Give a call if you can't find it ...

ps. if you use Code39 don't forget to add a * at
the beginning and the end of the barcode.
