Best Answer

1. Download and install the Code 128 Barcode Fonts .

NOTE: Mac users must use the Universal Fonts to generate Code 128 barcodes in Excel for Mac.

2. Download and install the Barcode Add-In for Excel .

For the Barcode Add-In video tutorial, please view:




NOTE: If there are issues encoding the data with the barcode Add-In, install the VBA Solution:


VBA SOLUTION

To create barcodes using a font, two components are required:
(1) Barcode Font
(2) Font Encoder

A font encoder is a component that takes the data that will be converted to a barcode and formats it into another form of data that the barcode font can understand. The IDAutomation VBA Macros is a free font encoder that encodes data for Excel and Access. The VBA is compatible for Excel 1997 and up.

The steps for importing VBA are compatible with Windows Excel 2007 - 2016.


The tutorial assumes that IDAutomation Barcode Fonts (Demo or Sale) are downloaded and installed.

1. Download the BarcodeFunctions.zip font encoder to the desired location on your computer. If unsure of where the download is located, run a search on the computer for the name BarcodeFunctions.


2. To extract BarcodeFunctions.zip, right-click on the file and select Extract All.

3. To identify the location of the IDAutomationVBA.bas file that will be imported into Excel's Visual Basic Editor, navigate through the extracted BarcodeFunctions folder. Remember the location of the file.

4. Open Excel, select the Developer Tab.

5. Select Visual Basic.

7. The VBA is placed in the Modules folder.

NOTE: Only import one instance of the IDAutomationVBA. If multiple IDAutomationVBA files (with the same file name) are in the modules folder, an "ambiguous name error" with #NAME will occur.

8. Select File--Close and Return to Microsoft Excel.


CREATE SSCC18

1. Enter your SSCC18 data into a cell. Data Example:
(00)00801234999999999

2. Add ~m17 at the end of the last digit. This will calculate the MOD10 check digit.
(00)00801234999999999~m17

3. In another cell, enter the formula =Code128(
and add the cell reference followed by a zero, and then enter True which enables the parameter ApplyTilde to allow ~m17 to calculate the MOD10 check digit. Your formula should now look similar to this:
=Code128(A2,0,True)

4. To encode the data, press return:
