There's also several suggestions here (although it mentions Access.... it's referring to Word)

i-fax didn't have the right size labels (5160).  I downloaded the fonts from barcodes-for-access.com..

there aren't any restrictions on the how many numbers must be included to make barcodes are there?

I want to print out small 3 digit numberes encoded in barcode.  if i do this, then scan it with a barcode scanner, will it spit out my 3 digit number?

thanks - Trevor

also, i downloaded a word template for Avery template 5160, and it is basically a table with the correct spacing for each label.  Is there any way to setup a macro or something to make word populate the fiels with this forumla:

100 in barcode font, size 36
100 in Arial 9 bold

so it looks sorta like this:

|||||||||
   100

then have the rest of the fields do the same except autoincrement 100 for each cell?

(i've never used macros or anything fancy in word)

You may want to look at this post trevor

Also - did you download the Avery Wizard?  That's been quite helpful in our office.  Otherwise, you should be able to just go to Tools, Envelopes and Labels and the 5160 size should be there.
