    The value of a barcode is a numeric or an alpha-numeric string which you store into the database and that you can display or print using a TextBox or possibly a Label. To display it as a barcode, you simply change the font of that Textbox (or Label) to a barcode font, such a 3-of-9, 128, UPC, etc.

    If you don't have any barcode font installed on your system, several are downloadable from the net.
    Have a nice day!

    Printing barcodes from Access

    When you print your data as a Code 39 barcode, don't forget to include asterisks at the beginning and end of the data. For example, to print 12345 as a barcode, print *12345*.

    Something like "*" & [mydatafield] & "*"

    The asterisk translates to the Code 39 start/top character. Without it, the scanner will ignore the barcode.
