Report Viewer barcode font not working on production server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a barcode font specified in my rdlc file and it works fine when I print the report through the webpage on my desktop webserver. But when I deploy the app to a production server (Windows 2k3), the text shows up as garbage instead of the barcode. I installed the barcode font in both environments but only the production server is giving these problems. Any idea why this is the case?

  • Here are some more details.


    The barcode font is called "Free 3 of 9" and the xml code inside the rdlc file is as follows:


    <Textbox Name="textbox63">
              <FontFamily>Free 3 of 9</FontFamily>
            <Value>="*" + trim(First(Fields!Purchase_Code.Value, "Header")) + "*"</Value>


    As you can see, the font family has been specified as Free 3 of 9. I double checked the font on the server and even in the registry.


    Expected output for a Purchase Code is supposed to be barcode representation of the Purchase Code 3349514184


    Actual output is being displayed as the following symbols: $$%*&"%")%


    I'm still baffled.

  • The font is installed on production server (e.g. if you call the server to generate a pdf)? You may need to have the font also on any client where you preview the report.
