Barcode Generation with SSRS and Microsoft Dynamics 365 | Business Central | Dynamics NAV

Microsoft SSRS may be used to generate reports that include many types of 1D and 2D barcode symbols including Code 128, Code 39, UPC, EAN, GS1-128, PDF417, QR Code, and Data Matrix. IDAutomation Supports barcode generation within SSRS, however, IDAutomation does not directly support Microsoft Dynamics. We have included tutorials here that can be an aid in creating SSRS reports that include barcode symbols. After the report functions properly, barcode symbols can be easily added to SSRS with Report Builder or Report Designer

Note: Installation of an IDAutomation product in Microsoft Dynamics and Business Central requires a minimum 1 Developer license for the corresponding font and encoder package to provide the fonts and tools necessary for a Development environment.

This is a 4 step process:

  1. Integrate SSRS with Dynamics, refer to creating an SSRS report for Dynamics 365. This process may be different for cloud-based and OnPrem (on-premise) deployments.
  2. Create and test the report.
  3. Integrate SSRS barcode symbols in the report with either the (1) Native SSRS Barcode Generator or (2) the SSRS Font Encoder with the appropriate Barcode Font.
  4. Test the report again containing the barcode symbols. Many symbols can be tested and verified with the Barcode Data Decoder.

Dynamics Integration Tutorials (from external sites)

For support related to barcode generation in SSRS, refer to the user manuals of the Native SSRS Barcode Generator or the SSRS Font Encoder.

IDAutomation fully supports the fonts and components provided by IDAutomation. IDAutomation provides guides about how customers have integrated barcodes into Dynamics, however, IDAutomation cannot assist with the integration into Dynamics. If this type of assistance is needed, contact Microsoft Dynamics Support.
