Hi Dan,

From what I understand about UPS MaxiCode is that it is some what similar to a Bar Code. If that is true, there must be a font which can generate this MaxiCode for you.

Once the font is installed, please check in Crystal report if it appears correctly and if the fields are getting converted to a MaxiCode as expected.

Till now, Maxi Code has not been officially tested with Crystal Reports, so we cannot be sure if it will give the correct output or not.

Please let us know if this helps.

Thanks Abhishek,

I wish it was that simple. Bar Codes in Crystal are easy but the maxicode is actually a round bar code with a lot of information stored in it making it more than a font. It is UPS's slap in our face I think. They offer a consulting service to help design or better yet they offer a printing service for $x per label.

To generate the code will probably require a DLL or ActiveX control. Hopefully someone will have some knowledge about it. IDAutomation offered it at one time but they are not supporting it right now or at least I am having some trouble getting support to even do an install.

Thanks again for the help,
