    In AR14, I am not able to export report with barcodes into excel. In "Excel" version barcodes are not readable with scanner.

    I used the very same report in AR6 and it worked like a charm.

    Any idea?

    Could you please share which barcode type are you using? if possible, could you please share the stripped down report with dummy DB. So that I can replicate the issue at my end.

    I am using barcode with style = "Code_128auto". You can replicate the issue from attached project.

    It is just VS2019 / "create new project" / "Activereports 14 page Report Appliacation". My target framework is .NET Framework 4.8. Then, on "pageReport1.rdlx" is only one control - barcode control of course. Barcode1.value is hardcoded to something like 'psx|K8523|U4556' (similar codes we use in production environment), so I do not need a database at all.

    If I start project, barcode is displayed and optionally printed. Scanning is Ok.

    part 2 - basically taken from -you can see in form1_load

    Excel export is created, but it can not be scanned. I tried page reports and section reports - no luck.
