We're using ReportBuilder 3.0 to build SSRS 2008 R2.
Now, in my report I want to add a barcode (type EAN-13).

I found a font (.TTF) that translates the number in a barcode with that number below,
I tried it out in Word and I'm getting exactly what I needed (the number generation will be handled in code in website application).

After installing the font on both my computer (developer's pc) and the server running SSRS,
I also tried it in Report Builder 3.0.
When in Design Mode you can see the barcode as it should be.
When running the report, you can also see the barcode.

But now comes the problem:
When running the report from Report Builder 3.0 and after clicking 'Print Layout'
or after printing the document from the code, the barcode isn't shown,
instead I see the numbers of the barcode in a default font (I think Arial).

Does anyone encountered a simular issue?
And/Or does anyone has a solution to print the barcodes when value is for example 0012345678905 (EAN-13),
using only ReportBuilder 3.0 and SSRS 2008 R2?

Is this IT?

Since you need to print out barcode on SSRS and show it on web page I guess this tool may help you. Try the ASP.NET control for SSRS, it will turn columns in reports easily into your SSRS easily, refer to the page about EAN-13:

Hey did you change the barcode setting of the EAN-13 barcodes? Maybe your hand setting did not match the barcode specification and barcode could not be displayed. I find one page on how to encode EAN-13 on SSRS with detailed sample codes, you may have a try:

Hi, so many worm-hearted people. I have never used or tested the barcode generator they suggested. But I can tell you one that I have used. And I think it's good:unspammed

i have never met the problems like yours
because i used a different unspammed
this plugin is pretty fast and accurate, and allows users to generate and add any barcode images onto all documents and image files.
i google it , then i found unspammed also offers many free trials of different plugins to deal with barcodes.
i do hope it will be helpful.
