    Barcode CODE 128 with large number (being rounded?) (BI / XML Publisher 5.6.3)

    mannyotr

      After by applying Patch 9440398 as per Oracle's Doc ID 1072226.1, I have successfully created a CODE 128 barcode.

       

      But I am having an issue when creating a barcode whose value is a large number. Specifically, a number larger than around 16 or so digits.

       

      Here's my situation...

       

      In my RTF template I am encoding a barcode for the number 420917229102808239800004365998 as follows:

       

      <?format-barcode:420917229102808239800004365998;'code128c'?>

       

      I then run the report and a PDF is generated with the barcode. Everything looks great so far.

       

      But when I scan the barcode, this is the value I am reading (tried it with several different scanner types):

       

      420917229102808300000000000000

       

      So:

       

           Value I was expecting:     420917229102808239800004365998

           Value I actually got:         420917229102808300000000000000

       

      It seems as if the number is getting rounded at the 16th digit (or so, it varies depending of the value I use).

       

      I have tried several examples and all seem to do the same.  But anything with 15 digits or less seems to works perfectly.

       

      Any ideas?
