    Re: help on barcode

    Simply use the barcode font you need

    Buy/download the barcode font
    Install the font in the pc
    Use it to format the desired field
    You can use it in Excel/Word/Crystal Reports/etc.

    Re: help on barcode

    As I understand your problem :
    You have an application
    You need to generate some codes to print them in barcode format
    One way could be that you write those codes in a table and then print them using Crystal Reports thru a designed rpt using the barcode font to format the field from the table

    Re: help on barcode

    I want to use ean and code 11. I am thinking of a process wherein, the user will input the list of barcodes which will be saved on the table and it will be the basis of printing it with the use of crystal reports 10 or lower version. I have seen sample for download from idautomation but it is for purchase and I cant afford for it right now yet.

    Which programming language are you going to use?
    Which database?
    Are you going to use ADO?
    Do you have experience with Crystal Reports?

    You are not going to find something equal to what you need
    You need to search and learn about every 'element' that will be part of your whole project and to do that first you should know every logical step
