Hello,
in an ASP.NET application, I need to use an OCRB font for some reports. Unfotunately, the OCRB font is not installed in the server, but I have it in a TTF file. How can I use it inside the reports?

You should have installed the font on the server. Also, the clients should have it installed too -otherwise they'll see the default one.

Obi-Wan,
This is a shared server and I don't have access to install the font... even if the Force is with me!
For the clients, they don't need it if I export a PDF report, because the font will be embedded.

You can embed fonts, but they should be installed on the production machine.
"Fonts that are used in a report must be installed on the machine where the application is running, so the PDF rendering can embed them"
