I am being conservative and standing up a 10gAS replacement due to a client's loss of their 9iAS environment.
The barcode 3of9 was used extensively in this NT/9iAS/9i PDF Reports environment
Fast forward to 10gAS / 10g Reports:
The barcode works when running from the Reports Builder. I have the font locally placed in my XP c:\windows\fonts.
The 3of9.ttf font is installed locally (from the 9iAS era) on the user's Win7 PC's and laptops.
The 3of9.ttf font is installed on the 10gAS R2 Windows server (c:\windows\fonts)
10gAS R2 reports services running on Win2003 server
REPORTS_PATH=c:\windows\fonts (on 10gAS server)
The 3of9.ttf works inside MS Office (as a test)
I even tried adding an entry to uifont.ali under PDF:subset
"3 of 9" = "3of9.ttf"
Any suggestions or questions? Any and all are appreciated !!!!
