Barcode generating software for MS Office

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)


Requirements:

- 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!

you could try using a webservice that generates barcodes like googles chart api which generates qr codes? works like embedding an external image in a document.

see http://code.google.com/apis/chart/

Do you need to generate EAN13/EAN8  or EAN-128? You could use Barcode Fonts.

Code 128 (EAN-128) Fonts:

EAN8/EAN/UPC Fonts:

You could generate Barcodes in Office with the fonts listed above and a font tool at:

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.
