Barcode Font not available in dropdown

Hi all,

I've got a client that has an Access application that has a report that uses barcodes. I've always installed this by simply copying the .TTF file into the Fonts folder from the Control Panel. But not, for some reason that's not working. It doesn't show up on the font drop down list.

I tested it in Word and Word doesn't show the font as available as well.

Does anyone have any ideas? Should I be doing more than just pasting the font into the font folder.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

E

you should try installing the font by clicking on file and going to install new font in the fonts section of the control panel. give this a try and see if it works. If not you may have a font type which is incompatible with windows or may need third party software such as the Adobe Type Manager.
