I am trying to print barcodes (3 of 9) on 2 types of printers. Both are non-ipds printers connected to the AS400. These are both just plain printers using the SCS datastream.
I have found the PCL commands to print out the bar code from this site (www.pbhall.us/barcode.html) using the TRNSPY and CVTDTA keywords in the PRTF.
But alas no bar code. So we bought a barcode Simm card for the Lexmark and was able to get the barcode to print from the same datastream I used before that did not work without the barcode Simm card.
What am I missing? Is it a printer config problem, missing PTFs, or something else... Please point me in the right direction.
