The string i am setting the 417 barcode to requires ascii characters 29 (Group separator) and 30 (Record separator) embedded at various places in the label. Somewhere i found that i could insert characters in the report object expression by entering Alt and the decimal ascii code, so alt+29 supposedly gives me the Group Separator. I have done that and my customer says the PDF417 barcode generated does not scan to include those characters. I am ata loss how to do this. Is there a Char() function i could put in the expression, like Char(29)? I've tried that and variation and it produces an error. I am limited to using the standalone report designer.

I have scanned the barcode myself, and since these are non-printable characters, i cannot see evidence of these characters in the resulting text outputted from the scan.

Hello ToddW,

Please test changing the settings of the Barcode item to allow the input - PDF417: Settings.
