I need to print a series of labels which will print 2 bar codes for product codes which are held in an Access 2007  database .  I need to use code 128 and code 39 bar codes .  I have fonts downloaded on my pc for both types. The Zebra printer (110 xiv 203cpi ) prints both code code types from our Production application and these scan correctly.  

However the bar code that I print from my access label does not scan any data when I test in notepad

 What am i doing wrong?

In code 39, are you adding that start/stop character at the beginning and end or your string?  The start/stop character is the asterisk (*).  So if you were sending the word QUEST you need to send it as *QUEST*.

If the barcodes are formatted properly, you need to print at very specific point sizes, because most thermal printers are only 203 dpi. Refer to this http://www.idautomation.com/kb/print-quality.html
