Can't you scale the code to give you smaller "image" and thus giving you 
more margin?

In my project, the QR-codes are done by Micrsosoft Word.

I use Paradox to create an Excel-file with all information  and then I make 
a mail merge in Word.

I haven't put it into production yet but it looks fairly simple.

In another project I print EAN-codes from Paradox. Then I use a normal 
Paradox-report and a true type font to print the barcodes. Works well. I 
think it could be an option also for QR-codes but not sure.

I am printing QR codes on payment orders

Iz has to be printed inside marked area, matgin of error is 2mm on any side.

How do you create QR codes?

I have no answer to your question but as I'm about to start a project with
QR-codes I'm curious.

Why is a "few millimeters off" a problem? Isn't it possible to make a layout
that would give some margin for error? I would never trust a printer to
print on exactly the same position every time.

I have to print some QR codes on preprinted forms.
So text (and picture) has to be positioned exactly.

I can position fields on report on correct positions, I can print report
on prerpinted forms OK (on MY printer).

But if I print to different printer, usually text and graphic is
a few milimmeters off, because each printer pulls
paper differently.

Is there a way to programaticly move objects on report
few milimeters up/down, left/right?
Some setting in INI file, that I would read before print and
"do something" to report?

Like smo invisible field, that would grow depending to my setings?

Thx Jure
