    Unanswered: Creating and reading barcodes in Excel

    Here at work, all of our bills have a barcode. The scanner reads these codes fine.

    I was investigating and found it would read barcodes off of books and boxes just as well -- it would read them straight into the existing billing program. While that was nice to know, I have no use for that info.

    But, I used excel to pull data from our database. Using the bill no (which is what is barcoded on our bills) I changed the font from arial to the barcode font called "BC C39 3 to 1 narrow".

    So, if I am using the same bar code font as that on our bills, why will the scanner not read the barcodes I create in excel.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    figured it out

    I did a search of the internet. The information to be barcoded must begin and end with an asterik (*). Thanks anyway.
