Creating Variable Barcodes using IDAutomation fonts instead of Barcode Studio

HP Recommended

I have found that if you save your database as a UTF-16 text format and assign to SmartStream; 

you can use the IDAutomationC39M font instead of going through the Barcode Studio plugin.

And it is quite a bit faster. I just created an imposed 56up card with 85,000 codes in 1/4 the time.

 

I have always used the UTF-16 format when running into Spanish accents and special characters.

For this to read, you will have to add a * before and after the variable code.
