Barcode Font Not Included in Reports PDF Output on Windows (Doc ID 602070.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 10.1.2.0.2 to 11.1.2.2.0 [Release Oracle10g to 11g]
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)
Reports 10.1.2 running with a standalone Report Sever that has been started via OPMN (Process Manager) is affected.

Symptoms

When trying to include a barcode in 10.1.2 pdf Reports on Windows another font, e.g. Arial, is seen in the pdf output instead of the barcode font.

The entry in uifont.ali for font subsetting is similar to the following:

[ PDF:Subset ]
"Barcode Font Name" = "BarcodeFont.ttf"


These parameters have been selected: DESTYPE=cache and DESFORMAT=pdf.

The BarcodeFont.ttf file is included in REPORTS_PATH and it is installed in the correct directory, for example C:\Windows\fonts on Windows 2003.

This works fine when NOT starting/restarting the standalone Report Server via OPMN but starting it with the rwserver command via command line, e.g. from "CMD"-Window in Windows, and running the Report with that Report Server.
