Hi Experts

I'm really unfamiliar with barcode software and need some advice.  For our product sheets we need to generate barcodes. (mostly EAN codes)


- Integration with Office 2007 (required)
- Intregetation with MS Dynamics (optional) this would be usefull to export product info out of our ERP system
- Generating EAN codes. This is the mininum, more options is a plus.  We will need to generate barcodes for our products in Europe and US so I guess we'll need extra barcodes in the future.

Freeware is not necessary.  If its a good package we are willing to pay for it.  A free trial would be handy to test the software.  This package we have found allready:

All advice is greatly appreciated!

    Hi Tncode

    Thx for your feedback.  i'm a bit suspicous about the software you suggest.  When I try to download the trial software I get an virus warning from Trend Micro... Also the website looks a bit "messy" or is that just me..?

    Wel'll need EAN13 and UPC12.
