Codabar Barcode Font Advantage PackageThe Codabar barcode type has been used for various high density numeric bar-coding applications including libraries, blood banks and parcels. Codabar is self-checking, eliminating the requirement for checksum characters, which allow it to be easily incorporated into existing applications.

The Codabar character set consists of barcode symbols representing characters 0-9, Letters A to D and the following symbols: - $ / +. Additional data may be encoded in the actual choice of start and stop codes. The uppercase letters A, B, C and D are used for start and stop codes. The parentheses ( ) may also be used as the start and stop code to eliminate the letters from appearing in the human readable version of the fonts.

The Codabar Font Advantage Package includes 12 font versions in six formats, plus font tools, macros and source code to help integrate the fonts into virtually any application. Order The Codabar Barcode Font Advantage Pacakge

Details of the Codabar Barcode Font Package

Easy To Use:

These fonts may be used to create Codabar barcodes from the keyboard, or used in a calculated field to dynamically produce multiple symbols. All barcodes require a start and stop character, and these can be entered from the keyboard as well.

For example, to create a barcode that encodes the data "1234" with the Codabar Font:

  1. Select the font from the list of fonts in the application.
  2. Type the start character; in this example it is "A".
  3. Type the data; in this example it is "1234".
  4. Type the stop character; in this example it is "B".
  5. Change the font back to the default font of the document.
Multiple Versions Provided:

Codabar barcode fonts are scalable and should be printed at the correct font size to suit the application and scanning equipment. Twelve (12) versions of Codabar barcode fonts are provided to support human-readable versions, and different height-width requirements. For more information, refer to the Codabar specifications.

Industry Standards:

IDAutomation Codabar barcode fonts have been developed according to Rationalized Codabar standards. Rationalized Codabar is 100% compatible with traditional Codabar and just as secure with the added benefit of higher density.

How to Use Codabar Barcode Fonts

Codabar barcodes may be easily generated from a font encoder or a calculated field to dynamically produce multiple symbols. Multiple examples are provided in the package for FileMaker, OpenOffice, Word, Excel, Access and Crystal Reports.

Calculated Field Examples:
  • Lotus Notes (use for barcoding in forms and views): "A" + DataField + "B"
  • Lotus Approach: Combine ('A', DataField, 'B')
  • Lotus 123 for Windows: ("A"&@STRING(B7,0)&"B")
  • Clarion: loc:barcode='A'&left(clip(DataField))&'B'
  • Microsoft Access: =("A"&[DataField] & "B")
  • Microsoft Excel: ="("&B2&")"

Manual Example:

  1. Type ( as the start character
  2. Type 12345678 which is the data to be encoded
  3. Type ) as the stop character
  4. Select only (12345678) and change the font for that text to IDAutomationHCBS

IDAutomation barcode fonts use short names for several reasons, including cross-platform compatibility. Below is a description of the font identification letters that make up the font name. For example, IDAutomationHCBS is a human readable, Codabar font with a short height.

Identifier Description
H Indicates this is a “human readable” font which generates a text interpretation below the barcode.
CB The symbology identifier of CB indicates the type of barcode generated is Codabar.
S, M, L, XS, XL & XXL The last characters in the font name after the symbology identifier determine the height of the barcode with the shortest being "XS" and the tallest being "XXL".
S An "S" directly after "IDAutomation" in the font name indicates a sample or demo version of the font.

Codabar Barcode Specifications

The X dimension (X is the width of the narrow bar) is listed below for various point sizes. The N Dimension (wide to narrow ratio) is 3:1, which is recommended by international standards. If an N dimension of 2 or 2.5 is needed, IDAutomation also offers the Universal Barcode Font Advantage™, which offers N Dimensions of 2:1, 2.5:1 and 3:1 and is designed to create multiple barcode types as a single font.

IDAutomation’s advanced Codabar barcode fonts have been designed to dependably scan when printed at point sizes both large and small. When printed at 6 points with a 600 DPI or greater laser printer, IDAutomation has been able to dependably scan the Codabar font with the IDAutomation USB Barcode Scanner. Excluding the start and stop characters, slightly more than 18 CPI print density may be achieved when printing at this small size.

Point Size Approximate X dimension
24 .50 mm .020"
18 .38 mm .015"
12 .25 mm .010"
9 .19 mm .008"
6 .127 mm .005"

Twelve (12) different versions of the Codabar barcode fonts are provided to support human-readable versions and different height requirements. Fonts with the letter "H" in the font name are "human readable" versions. The last characters in the Codabar barcode font name determines the height of the barcode, with the shortest being "XS" and the tallest being "XXL". Because each single font may be printed at various point sizes, several height/width combinations can be produced.

Font Name of Purchased Version Font Name of Demo Version* Font Height at 12pt*
Codabar Fonts with no text below the barcode:
IDAutomationCBXS IDAutomationSCBXS  1/16" (.078") or .2 cm
IDAutomationCBS IDAutomationSCBS  1/8" (.125") or .4 cm
IDAutomationCBM IDAutomationSCBM  1/4" (.25") or .6 cm
IDAutomationCBL IDAutomationSCBL  1/2" (.5") or 1.1 cm
IDAutomationCBXL IDAutomationSCBXL  5/8" (.625") or 1.6 cm
IDAutomationCBXXL IDAutomationSCBXXL  1" or 2.5 cm
Human-Readable Codabar Fonts (text below the barcode)
IDAutomationHCBXS IDAutomationHSCBXS  1/16" (.078") or .2 cm
IDAutomationHCBS IDAutomationHSCBS  1/8" (.125") or .4 cm
IDAutomationHCBM IDAutomationHSCBM  1/4" (.25") or .6 cm
IDAutomationHCBL IDAutomationHSCBL  1/2" (.5") or 1.1 cm
IDAutomationHCBXL IDAutomationHSCBXL  5/8" (.625") or 1.6 cm
IDAutomationHCBXXL IDAutomationHSCBXXL  1" or 2.5 cm
* Measurements are approximate and were measured when printed at 12 points, which should work for most scanners. Measurements for Human Readable fonts do not include the text below. At 12 points, the X dimension is about 8 mils.

To print at a different height, find the font that has the height closest to what is needed and use this formula to find the point size to print the font at that height: 12 * (height you want) / (height at 12 points) = (point size converted to integer)
For example, if using IDAutomationCBL and the size is to be about .75" tall, then it needs to print at 18 points because: 12 * .75 / .5 = 18

Codabar Font Names Prior to July, 2003
