I am trying to print a bar code on a report from Reporting Services using Code128 font. The start and stop chars show up OUTSIDE the bar code. The scanner can't read this, of course. The check sum seems to render inside (as part of) the bar code. After the start and stop chars have been added, the string looks like this:
what shows up on the report:

Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong? This is driving me crazy.

I have an application that generates barcode in image format and it is read by some devices and fails in others. The problem now that the barcode image is pixilated so the barcode reader can't read it and i have decided to change barcode from image to font to overcome this problem as font barcode is readable from all readers (that I am using).

I face now a problem, when I setup the driver of the printer (Zebra TLP) at my PC (64-bit) and set it as a default printer, the font Code128 appeared in fonts list at MS Office Word application but in VS2010 doesn't appear, I need to use the font of the printer (Code128) to use it and generate barcode. How can I do that?

I don't know if the problem is clear to you or not? But I have to generate a font barcode in .net 2010 at Telerik reports.

This is a SQL Server forum. Maybe you want to try a Visual Studio forum?
