Has anyone been able to put a QR code on a label?  The label has 6 text boxes on it and I need to capture all six lines in one QR code if possible.

If you've done it, how?

No, but QR codes are normally pictures, so you just need to position the picture on the label.

If you don't have the pictures, you can generate them here:

As gutav has pointed out, you can get it through a web site as a service.  Also, most bar code libs contain that symbology as well.

For example:

http://www.abarcode.net/access.aspx

 You just fill in the data and it does the rest.

 As far as the six lines, it would depend on the number of characters your trying to encode.  You just need to make sure you use a square that's big enough.
