    * The majority of products offered will function without installing any additional fonts, UFLs or plug-ins. However, due to limitations in Crystal Reports formulas, certain complex barcode types, including USPS IMb, require the installation of the included Crystal UFL to perform the majority of required calculations. Installation of this UFL is automatic when running the installer for this product. In addition, a silent installer is provided with all Developer Licenses of this product to easily install the UFL when reports are distributed. If it is necessary to distribute reports without any dependencies, Streaming Barcodes into Crystal Reports may be a better solution.

    Excellent Product

    Review by Paul on 10/22/2020

    We had a ton of issues with using barcode fonts and compatibility with hand scanners. Purchased this and within minutes issues were resolved. Worked right out of the box. by Richard on 10/23/2017

    It Works OK

    Review by Giorgio on 10/20/2020

    For ordinary numbers (converted to string) and strings IDAutomation makes the correct barcodes in Crystal Report. After watching the tutorial on YouTube it works ok. I will not give it 5 stars, because you have to be a little bit of a nerd to cope with the problems (“a string is expected here”) No further help. Not 4 stars because dates in barcode is very difficult. (You are right, I have not solved the problem yet) No further help to be found on ID Automation. First time I got this result when I scanned the barcode: 18++09+2016Æ00Æ00Æ00 (I remember it like that) Now I’m down to the result 22+09+2016, but it shall be 22-09-2016 else my database won’t accept the reading. So all in all until now I will give it 3 stars. The smart thing is that the code is embedded in the file/document, the bad thing is the difficulties with making the codes in the document. by Alexander on 10/21/2016

    Works Perfectly

    Review by Sagar on 7/28/2019

    Easy to use, simply created a formula of the barcode/string that I wanted into a text({string}) and copied my formula into the section indicated and dropped it into our report. Thank you very much for making something so fool proof to use :)

    Very Easy

    Review by Jochen on 7/8/2019

    The code is used to print labels for some customers. All their goods which will be shipped are completed with a datalabel on each package. Purchase, download and installation is very easy.

    Very helpful

    Review by Mike on 5/28/2019

    Right now I am using the software to see if I can develop a process to allow us to use a linear barcode for internal tracking and a 2D barcode for the shipping department on the same package. The installation was quite simple. I did not require support for the setup or operation of the software. I had contacted pre-sales support to find out about licensing and they were very helpful.
