    Barcode Decoding Problems

    tomh019 Level 1



        I'm experimenting with the PDF417 Paper Forms Barcodes, trying to determine capacity limits and how to reliably encode form data.  Currently I'm seeing an issue where, when filling out my form in Adobe Acrobat Professional some data does not parse out on the backend.  The barcodes are still displayed correctly in Acrobat (i.e. not greyed out), but when extracting the data, there are parsing issues. Some of the data comes through correctly, and some is garbled.  It is as though a fixed size buffer is being overrun & there is random data corruption as a result.


        I'm using data compression on each barcode, and tab delimited data.  I can provide examples via email if that is useful.  Any ideas?
