    Re: Barcode in Reports 10g

      I know this is an old post,
      Barcode in Reports 10g
      but I am facing the same problem here. Using reports, running on a Linux server.

      I have set this on <domain>config/FRComponent/frcommon/guicommon/tk/admin/uifont.ali:


      But generated PDF reports are not embedding the fonts, since I need to have them installed on the computer to see the barcode. I understand the parameter PDFEMBED is set to true by default. But my reports are called from Oracle Forms. How can I be sure the parameter is correct? What else could I check?

      Thanks in advance.

          The steps related to PDF Subsetting and PDF embedding are "extra" steps that occur after the step "Report formatting ".

          In order to take into account the line :
          XYZFONT = "XYZFONT.afm XYZFONT.pfa"

          the font used during the step "Report formatting " must be XYZFONT .

          Did you test to generate the Report with DESFORMAT=HTML ?

          Check in the HTML output the font name used for the "Barcode Field".

          For more details , you can refer to the document :
          Troubleshooting Guide for Font Aliasing / Font Subsetting / Font Embedding Issues (Doc ID 350971.1)

          Kind regards
