Can I create GS1 barcode in Word? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been using GS1 barcode in Excel, when I worked with a list of products and prices. Is there any way to encode GS1 barcode like GS1-128 barcode in Word. If it is possible, do I need to install barcode font? If not, what should I do?

  • Both barcode fonts and word add-in to generate barcode will be OK. I tried word add-in for GS1 128, it works well. Easy to convert number into barcode, and could change size and fonts of barcode, funny.

  • You can use the barcode font to generate GS1 barcode, or like wise, you can install a barcode control.

  • Seems easy to draw barcode. How could I draw many barcodes at one time? Like a list?

  • I have generated barcode in word using barcode control. It is quite easy to install a barcode control. Google and you will find some good controls for creating barcode.
