Make UPC barcodes

Make barcodes in Crystal Reports

Printing UPC, EAN, ISBN-13 and ISSN barcodes in Crystal Reports projects is easy using Azalea UPCTools barcode software and the custom function we've designed specifically for creating UPC barcodes in all versions of Crystal. You'll find the custom function available for free download here.

Another way to make UPCs in your reports is to use our UFL- User Function Library. Using the UFL in Crystal is a two step process: you pass your data into our UFL and then format the returned string of text into one of our UPC barcode fonts. Both the custom function and the UFL below add the start and stop characters and calculate the UPC check digit for you.

User Function Library

The Azalea UFL for Crystal Reports is made up of two custom barcode .dlls called u25azalea.dll and u212azalea.dll. The UFL and a set of nine different Azalea Code 39 fonts are bundled with Crystal Reports 2008 & Crystal Reports 2011.

For UPC, EAN, ISBN-13 or ISSN barcodes, the UFL comes included in our UPCTools software. If you'd like to install the UFL manually, follow the directions below.

32-bit UFL

• For standard installation, save the two .dlls to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports

• For .NET framework, save the .dlls to:
4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86

64-bit UFL

• For standard installation, save the two .dlls to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports

• For .NET framework, save the .dlls to:
4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win64_x64

Use this free sample code to set up your report workflow; you'll need the barcode fonts included in the UPCTools software package when you're ready to save and print the final barcodes.

We have a how-to guide that you can download for Crystal Reports 2008: UPC Barcodes in Crystal Reports 2008.
