I am developing a GRN label print report and have installed font 3 of 9 Barcode.

I want the barcode for the product to be stretched so you stand a good chance of scanning it.

How do I double or even treble the height of this field. Changing font size etc just increase the width as well as depth. I just want more depth.

Simply widening the column it is in doesn't help? Also make sure you get rid of all padding for the textbox where the barcode is.

I've tried everything you've said. See code below.

<TableRow>
<TableCells>
<TableCell>
<ReportItems>
<Textbox Name="PRODUCT_1">
<rd:DefaultName>PRODUCT_1</rd:DefaultName>
<CanShrink>true</CanShrink>
<Style>
<FontFamily>3 of 9 Barcode</FontFamily>
<FontSize>36pt</FontSize>
<TextAlign>Left</TextAlign>
<VerticalAlign>Bottom</VerticalAlign>
<LineHeight>127pt</LineHeight>
</Style>
<CanGrow>true</CanGrow>
<Value>=Fields!PRODUCT.Value</Value>
</Textbox>
</ReportItems>
</TableCell>
</TableCells>
<Height>5.75cm</Height>
</TableRow>
</TableRows>

So, what are you getting? Just a small blob that can't be read? Also as I recall, some bar code fonts come with a font size built in. Can you try a different 39 font?

Looking at this I'm not sure its possible to do what I want.

I tried using the same font in Excel and then trying to stretch the cells depth and the barcode did not stretch with the cell.
