You could use some special font for that, or use Crystal Reports

Search the InterNet for 3of9 Barcode font.  All you have to do is print using this font.

If i use Crystal Report to print the barcode, do i need to save the barcode to my table first?  What are the step that you recommend to do ?

By the way, What do you mean by Special Font?

With crystal report, you could create reports with barcode. But I have never tried it.
