    You are using the dll for computing the checksum? We only use the font.

    Yes I'm using the IDautomation DLL, with the Code128 function I can get the barcodes, the checksum and the human readable characters. Works nice.

    We have had problems with the ansi start en end characters in NAV. Depending on the regional settings of the PC they would change.

    We know this now, so we can work around this problem (edit code and change the value and recompile) but by using the dll won't you have this problem too? The value of ~212 will be different in other languages, I think.

    I am new to this. Please pardon.

    Actually, how would you create EAN 128 barcode within Navision report(s)?

    TIA

    did you look at the other 2 links i posted for you?

    We use barcode generator - works fine.
    How do you want to use it. Create lots of barcodes or say just one at the top of the page or something?
    the generator can do
    11-Code 128 A
    12-Code 128 B
    13-Code 128 C
    14-Code 128
    15-EAN 128

    We have to create shipping and other drum (or production) labels, using barcode EAN 128. In each label, we have to print barcode(s) for a variety number of fields; description, product code, lots, quantity, PO#, pallet number, etc... Besides, we have locations, outside of the US, whose languages are not English. I have heard someone mentioning something about error(s) related to regional/locale issue(s).

    We are looking for fonts (free or purchase) to simplify/reduce chances of errors.

    Thanks for your response.

    do you use e-ship?
    No, we are not using e-ship.

    We simply want to print shipping labels with UCC EAN 128 bar codes.

    Barcoded Labels created from Navision are not scannable, using font Barcode 3 of 9 (font created by Fontographer, ver 1.0).

    Hi ajhvdb, could you share a bit about how you found the correct Start and end chars, i am struggling here finding it out :)

    I use http://www.idautomation.com/fonts/tools/activexdll
    I use it on development server where I have registered it via regsvr32.
    It works nice on NAV2009, NAV2013, NAV2013R2, NAV2015.
    From NAV2016 until BC this dll doesn’t work however I use the same report in all NAV versions.
    When I run report in NAV2016 or higher I receive error on this line of code:

    CREATE(EAN128,TRUE,TRUE);

    Variable:
    Name DataType Subtype
    EAN128 Automation 'IDAutomationDLL'.FontEncoder

    Any suggestion? Thank you. I receive following error message:

    Microsoft Dynamics NAV

    Unable to create an instance of Automation Server IDAutomationDLL.FontEncoder with CLSID = 02b67df7-32f3-4ee5-ad2a-cadba8106dbb Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {02B67DF7-32F3-4EE5-AD2A-CADBA8106DBB} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG))..
