Adding barcodes to reports can speed up a variety of processes in a supply chain.

Feature details

The Barcode Encoder module in the system application provides the objects and tools that developers need to add barcodes to reports. The module also provides the barcode fonts that you can use out of the box in Business Central online. However, if you are using Business Central (on-premises), you must license the fonts from IDAutomation and install them on the virtual machine where the Business Central server (NST) is running.

The following symbologies are supported: Code 39, Code 128, Code 93, Codabar, Interleaved 2 of 5, Postnet, MSI Plessey, EAN-8, EAN-13, UPC-A, UPC-E.
