Inserting Barcodes in Crystal Reports

Crystal Reports is one of the most popular environments in the business market today. Companies across the globe utilize the power of Crystal Reports to generate reports from a multitude of data sources, providing immeasurable insight in terms of business analysis, strategic planning, inventory control and much, much more. Crystal Reports is also one of the most popular environments that businesses integrate barcode technology into. While many barcode technology companies offer fonts or .NET components to meet this need, customers often find these solutions to be cumbersome, complicated and often costly.

In 2010, IDAutomation was able to secure a patent for a special barcode generator object, thus eliminating the need for cumbersome fonts or complicated components. Known as the Native Barcode Generator for Crystal Reports, this totally unique product affords companies the ability to easily add barcode generation capability to reports without installing fonts or any other components. In short, the native barcode generator lives inside the report itself, and travels with the report when being distributed electronically.

IDAutomation has also secured similar patents for generating barcodes in Microsoft Access as well as Oracle Reports, giving customers the freedom to explore a completely new method to generate barcodes without much of the confusion.
