Barcode not displaying/printing in Crystal Report java viewer

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
We have written a Crystal report (in Developer XI release 2 with service pack 4 installed) which produces barcode labels.  The barcodes are Code 39 barcodes and are generated by printing the string \*data_field\* in a Code 39 barcode font.  The asterisk is the character used for the Code 39 start/stop sequence in the barcode font.
In Developer everything works fine and prints out and scans correctly. When we make the report available to our end users in the Crystal Reports java viewer all we get where the barcode should appear is white space on screen or when we print.  (The rest of the report behaves correctly). 
We have tried a few things and have found that if both asterisks or the starting or ending asterisk is left in a different font (i.e. not the barcode font) then the rest of the string displays and prints in the barcode font.  (unfortunately without bot asterisks you don't get a scanable barcode).
Has anyone got any suggestions on how to fix this?
(In case it might be relevant the barcode font we are using is this one: http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font/)
Thanks

Hello Ludek,
                I have found that the issue is caused by the bold attributes of my field.
                You can try the following and you should encounter the same issue:
                                - Create a Report
                                - Create a formula with many characters
                                - Put you field in Times New Roman bold 8.
                The following Font Size in  Times New Roman are in issue: 5 u2013 8 u2013 11- 14
                The following Font Size in  Arial are in issue: 8 u2013 11 u2013 12 u2013 14
Thank you.
Charles
