There are many reasons why this might not work. Here are the most common in my mind, but there are probably many more

1. The barcode font is no good.
2. The barcode you chose requires a checksum digit that you need to put in
3. You need a start-stop character for the bar code (code 3 of 9 is most common symbology, and the * is usually used as start-stop)
4. You are printing to a text box that is too small for the size of the bar-code (i.e. the right end of the code is clipped). Try printing some characters with a word processor to check this.
5. You are printing the barcode too small for the scanner
