Data Matrix Barcode for labels

Dear all,

we have to print a data matrix barcode in a small label (KLT). We use SmartForms. Do you have any ideas if this is supported by SAP? Is there another solution to produce a data matrix barcode in SAP with a third party tool? PDF417 barcode can not used because the factory want to change to data matrix.

Best regards

Uwe

Note 1557674 describes the different possibilities for printing barcodes in SAP: # 1557674 - Overview of bar code printing from SAP However, if you want to print a data matrix barcode, method 1 and 2 are the only ones which can be used. So either you must have a printer where a barcode module is installed which contains the data matrix barcode, or you need a barcode.dll which contains the barcode

Dear Uwe,

we used SAP Add-on that generates the barcode DMC.

I then created the corresponding print programs and Smart Forms.

Hello Dietmar,

you are right. We found the same solution in the meantime. I think there is a possibilty to print the data matrix barcode with Adobe Forms. But we have to investigate it a bit deeper.

Best regards
