Generate document task - Barcode generation in PDF format

Using the Generate document task, I managed to generate a Word document with a barcode generated with APS variable data using the following code:

{DISPLAYBARCODE “<<[transmittal_id]>>” CODE128 \t \h 1500}

The transmittal_id variable data "L96869665" is inserted into the Word document.

{DISPLAYBARCODE “L96869665” CODE128 \t \h 1500}

When you open in Word, the barcode is displayed. It seems like this only works for Word for PC. We want to switch to PDF version, so Mac users can view/print the document.

When I switch the output format to pdf, I get the following error shown in the PDF.

Is there some configuration that I need to set for the PDF to render the barcode?

We are using APS 1.9.

Any insight into this would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Wayne

Hi @wtam-ucla,

I believe this is an aspose issue & the recommendation is to use a barcode font in the doc template.

Hope your issue is resolved.
