An ID card template is downloaded but local Word 2007 on a Windows 7 computer needs 39 font installed.  There are many different free sources for 39 fonts on the web, and I obtained links to these through other posts on EE.  
Will there be any issues with any of these fonts?  Not sure if they are different sizes, or one would work while another will not.  It is a standard credit card sized ID card.  Also, is there a particular source for the font that you recommend?
If there are issues, I suppose I can add and remove the font until I get one that works.

Thanks.

Here are are two free ones that I've been using for quite a while and recommend:

http://www.barcodesinc.com/free-barcode-font
http://www.dafont.com/barcode-font.font

Both work well, but I prefer the second one. I suggest you install both to see which one you like better. I have used both in Word 2007 on W7.

Also, if you ever need to insert a barcode into a PDF and print from that, here's an EE thread that discusses it:
