    yes
    depends on what target barcode you want to generate
    the most effective way of doing this is to use a barcode control, usually an OCX/Activex control that does the ahrd part of actaully creating the barcode. If its a pretty simple barcode (Code 39, or possibly EAN) then you may be able to create your own control.. otherwise I'd search google for a barcode control.

    heck you may even be able to get one for free

    If the number is unique and represents what the barcode is to translate to, you can do it with nothing more than a barcode font.
