Report Writer & Bar Codes


Has anyone found or developed a font for using the MaxiCode or 128 barcode functions within a Windows based program? Or has anyone put the function for either of these into the Report Writer? We're developing our picking ticket & packing list for shipping & need to print a barcode for UPS (MaxiCode) and/or the SSCC18. Any other suggestions?

We had difficulties trying to get Report Writer to create barcodes. We use Create Print to pull in the PDF and read and translate the information we want barcoded.

Not sure how it would work for UPS barcodes (I'm assuming you mean that 3 dimensional square thing that UPS requires.) We use a 3rd party carrier shipping system that links to UPS and prints those labels.
