    MICR Fonts

    Maybe this belongs in the BIP thread, but I there must be some developers here that have had to deal with this. Can someone recommend a good MICR font product? I need to create some checks and I don't want to simply buy the first one I find with google.

    You don't have to buy one. There is a perfectly good MICR font available under the GNU license. You can download both TrueType and PostScript from here (link).

    I've used it with BI Publisher at a couple of clients.

    Re: MICR Fonts

    I found this one, but the website mentions he can't guarantee it will be accepted by the bank. I didn't want to mess with it if there is a possibility it won't work.

    Have you used this font personally or know first hand of a project that has used it with out issue?

    One of my clients is a well-known restaurant chain (at least on the West coast). They run their A/P checks through BI Publisher, with the GNU MICR TrueType font on the check.

    They've been using it for 3 or 4 years.

    Re: MICR Fonts

    That is good news. One more little issue....

    I have followed all of the instructions from Oracle several times and in different ways, on a windows server and AS400, and I just can't get the MICR font to show up on the PDF. If you can find out from your client how they configured it I would sure appreciate it. It won't be any fun to open an issue with Oracle, you all know how long that will take.

    Re: MICR Fonts

    Is this with or without BI Publisher? The procedure is different depending on the answer.
