This video describes the use of the 2D Bar Code Module to create variable Swiss QR-bill 2D bar codes. The Swill QR-bill is a QR Code-based payment system where the QR Code contains all of the required payment information. The data for the QR-code must be organized in a specific format according to the published specification (please see links below for access to the specification document). This video describes two different methods for creating variable QR-bill codes, one by reading the QR-bill formatted data directly from a single field in the data file, and a separate approach that utilizes the 2D Bar Code Module Template feature. The samples presented in this video can be downloaded using the resource links below.
Before proceeding with this training video, you should be familiar with how to create a placeholder 2D bar code in an InDesign document. For more details about the basics of 2D bar coding, including how to create placeholder 2D bar codes, please see the Linear and 2D Bar Coding training video.
