Hi all,

I have a problem.  I need to generate simple barcodes either in EAN128 or code32 format (or any workable other!) and understand it can be done in excel 2010.  I've sourced and installed both of the above barcodes and scan produce and print them with no trouble.  Problem is, none of my scanners will read them.  My limited knoweldge of scanner set up tells me that the scanners are not set up to read these fonts yet so I'm heading to the intermec site for some set up barcodes.  Can anyone throw any additonal light on getting this to work?  Appreciate this is not actually a question but any advice is greatfully accepted!

Cheers

Most likely you need to format your data to the font first. The scanner expects to see special start and stop characters. Here is a good tutorial I found about doing this in Excel with Code-39:
