Barcode activeX or DLL

Hi,

I need to produce some labels containing ean barcodes and am looking for a free (yes free) DLL or activex which I can use via msaccess or preferably vb6.

Anyone know of any of these? or cheap ones?

Cheers.

1) http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_10647841.html?query=barcode&searchType=topic#3282133 

2) you can download some sample barcode fonts from the site.
www.azalea.com
And use them with crystal reports in vb in formulas. They work.
Search for the document scr_barcodes.pdf on www.crystaldecisions.com site. That will help you understand the development for barcode printing.
You can find some free at http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font/

3) If you don't want to use a font.
You must use ZPL II(Zebra programing language)
With this language you send a text file with the code to print with this printers.

This is an example

^XA^LH10,0^BY2,2.1,80
^FO10,10^B3N,N,,N,N^FDA10205A^FS   'Print your Item No with a BARCODE 3 of 9
^XZ

If you don't have the ZPL Reference you can download form www.zebra.com
