Barcode 39 with QlikView Standard Barchart (no font)

QlikView can produce Barcodes (Encoding: 39)  itself. This little app uses the ability of a QlikView standard bar chart to draw the necessary black and white stripes to build a scanner-readable barcode

A mapping table was required in the script (enclosed) to convert each digit/character of the code into a 13-digit binary combination (0 would be represented by 1010011011010). Qlikview splits the code into it's digits/characters so there is a new table generated with n times the number of records as in the master data (where n matches the maximum code length).

There are also two alternative ways shown to create barcodes:

  • one using the free font "Free 3 of 9",
  • one using a website with a dynamic URL, which returns the barcode as bitmap.

A PDF Report is included to print the different methods of creating barcodes to paper. The Qlikview barchart is the only independent method to create a barcode (the others are depending on either a website or a locally installed font)

Checksum: There is an optional modulo43 checksum calculated. If you need, you can display it. It is one additional character or digit added at the end of the code.

This is a great example on all the potential capabilities that Qlik delivers. By any chance do you know of a customer that has implemented something similar in a production environment?

I am not aware of someone using it in production. The prospect, for whom I originally made this example app, has still not decided. But if you are the first production user, let me know ...

Really impressive Christof.
I want to produce a table that has two columns. One showing the data as a numeral (or text) and the next showing it as Barcode.
I can't figure out how to do that.
This would be a first use in production for sending off a manifest to customer.

Do you like to have multiple barcodes in a 2-column table in seperate rows? If so, the only way will be to use the 39Font or inline-graphics from a barcode-webservice. My example (ab)uses the settings of a barchart to produce one barcode, not a series of barcodes; it is comprised of many white and black bars; there is no inline-bar available for table objects which can do multiple tiny black and white bars.
