SSRS Exporting to a PDF File with Fonts embedded

My issue was to print out a Microsoft report (SSRS) into a PDF file with barcodes.

After the development of the report that included the barcode font (free 3 of 9) and its deployment to the development server, the browser didn’t print any barcode upon the first test.



In order to sort this out, the Free 3 of 9 font is required, therefore, it has to be installed on every single workstation.

Furthermore, it is required to install this font on the server in order to export the reports into PDF files.

Note: After installing the Free 3 of 9 font on the server, the latter has to be restarted so as to take the changes into account.

    1. Client machine needs same barcode installed
    2. Restart Reporting Services ( not just the service) after font install
