Does anyone have experience (or can anyone point me to documentation) regarding the 2D bar codes supported by Documaker? We are using 11.5, and are interested in evaluating PDF417 or DataMatrix (or others) for scanning purposes. We have implemented a PDF417 solution using section rules rather than the bar code type in found in 11.5, but I am interested in using it for something other than New York ID cards. To that end, I'm not sure the PDF417 guide that I have found in the documentation section of the support site is useful, as the data we hope to bake into a PDF417 bar code wouldn't be parts of drive names, VINs, etc., I'm hoping there is a way to create our own name-value pairs for sue with the bar code. Is this possible? I have no experience with DataMatrix, so I am curious if we can implement a similar solution using that technology as well.
DataMatrix may be the better solution since the information on its 2D barcode is an ISO 16022 spec that you can purchase:
You may refer to the documentation on "Using Data Matrix 2-D Bar Codes" in the studio user guide.
