Assign QR Codes to Marketing Docs

This blog post is part of a series called “Tip of the Week”. In this week’s tip, we’ll see how to use QR  codes in marketing docs.

The Quick Response code was first designed in the 90’s for the automotive industry in Japan – barcode that is a machine-readable optical label containing information about the item to which it is attached. Since then, QR codes became popular also outside the automotive industry, and used in applications to include product tracking, item identification, time tracking, document management, and general marketing.

You just have to scan it. But, before you scan it, you have to generate it… for that, SAP Business One introduces new functionality allowing you to assign QR Codes to marketing documents. Enter all relevant values in the General Settings > QR Codes tab:

In the marketing documents, a new field is added in the Accounting tab, where you can either enter text or use formatted search for generating the required value:

Now, just add the QR code field into your Crystal print layout, and it will appear on the print out.

Available in SAP Business One 10.0 PL02 and SAP Business One 10.0, version for SAP HANA PL02.

      I really think that this procedure requires a guide, the blog article and SAP Note (2889899) is a good start. However, hard to follow as a step by step guide for making this feature work.

      I followed the SAP Note (2889899) , but still OQRC Table filed 'QR Code Image Content' coming as blank.

      is there anything to activate?

      Hi Ravinda,


      What is the exact scenario, what you was going to try?

      The simplest scenario is working without any activation or coding, etc.

      You can simple enter (through keyboard) a value (text) to the  QR code field on the form of a marketing document and add (or update) the document - the QR code (in png format) containing the text from the mentioned field will be automatically generated and added to the OQRC table.

      Of course you have to use at least version 10.0 PL02.
