I have a VB program which must add barcodes (Code39) to existing PDF Documents.
This pgm will be installed on 40 PCs(Win2000)
These PCs can only use Adobe Acrobat 4.
Adobe Acrobat 4 doesn't support Barcode Fonts.
I was thinking of doing the following. Getting
Client A to call Server VB Pgm B which has Adobe Acrobat 5 on it (Allows Barcode), it adds the Barcodes and then sends the file back to Client PC. The Client PC then opens the Document using 4 and prints it.
This would require DCOM programming I'm not at this level yet.
(I've tested would Adobe Acrobat 4 print the Adobe file with the Barcode fonts in it and it does.)
Is there another way to do this, maybe a tool to convert text to a Barcode format and then I could insert it as a Bitmap onto the original PDF doc. using Adobe Acrobat 4.
Any suggesstions would be great.
Thanks in advance.
