I created a BIP report where in I am displaying a barcode in place of PO number. I selected 3 0f 9 barcode. I have a sample output and trying to view the preview in PDF. It is not displaying barcode in PDF format. How ever it is displaying the barcode in rtf, explorer etc. Please help me in solving this. Am I missing any setup after installing Font and BI Publisher desktop..
Are you able to see the bar-code in pdf output in rtf layout (not thru concurrent request submission)?
Please check the following steps and see if you have missed one of these set-ups in XML Publisher administrator:
XML Publisher Administrator-->Administration
Font File--->Give font file name and Browse the bar code (3 of 9 in your case)--->Apply
Font Mapping-->Mapping Name--->Mapping Code
Type--->FO to PDF--->Apply
Open Tab Create Font Maping
Font Family: Code39-Digits(This name should be exactly the font name which comes in word)
Target Font Type: Truetype
Font : font file name
Go to Template Tab
Query for your template
Open Edit Configuration
Click on FO Processing
In Font Mapping set :associate your file
Please let me know if you are still unable to view the barcode.
It could mean (guessing...) your barcode font is part of your Windows fonts (normally under C:\Windows\Fonts) but you do not have the proper config file to reference it (to be used by your PDF output). Set the font under xdo.cfg or XML Admin to be recognized by PDF.
Server config can be done using XML Admin resp (EBS) or similar xdo.cfg file.
