RE: Barcode only works with asterisk
Well, to produce a properly formed bar code, you have to follow the required specs (asterisks, etc). Most scanners/readers will detect the bar code type and only return the value (the number you actually wanted coded). So yes, you need to convert the output to string to produce the barcode. If your bar code scanner/reader is passing the raw code data to you (including the asterisks, etc) then you will have to parse that out and get to just the value you want, but I'd be surprised if the scanner returned more than just the value of the barcode. You should also make sure the barcode font you are using is in fact free (or you paid for it). If it's a demo font it may not produce all the characters as you expect. Here's one that is supposed to be free and work well (though I don't have a scanner handy so I've not personally tried it): http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font/

Barcode only works with asterisk
Hi We want to bring our order-number as a barcode on paper. The number is an Integer in the field. For this we use a Code 39 font, and the barcode looks all right on paper, but can not be read by the scanner. Only if we change the field to Alpha and put in * as start and stop character it works. Any idea how to aviod the asterisk, and anyone who knows a font where it works 'out of the box' ? Can the setup for scanner be changed  ? Using PDX11. Best regards Peter
