QR code is not too much different for other barcodes when it comes to using in reports and printing, so the only recommandation is use a library that you are comfortable to use or afford to buy if you don't find a freeware one.

One ideea to start from is http://strokescribe.com/en/create-barcode-access-2010.html - is a "commercial" one but it has an example especially for Access 2010.

I had follow up the URL but no any mention to QR BARCODE (the new barcode)!
OR Maybe there is  something I couldn't understand !

The link provide the "generic use in Access 2010" so to use it with QR you should select the "Alphabet" to be "QR CODE".
