Best Answer

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 GS1-128 VBA Macros is a font encoder included in the GS1-128 Font Package that encodes data for Excel and Access.

This tutorial uses the GS1-128 Font Package
IDAutomation GS1-128 is downloaded and installed.

1. Download the (Demo or Licensed) GS1-128 Font Package.


2. To extract the file, right-click it and select Extract All.

3. Double-click to run the EXE installation for the Font Package.

4. After the font package installs, navigate the package to the VBA folder. This includes the IDAutomation_UniversalGS1Font_VBA.bas that will be imported into Excel's Visual Basic Editor. Remember the location of the file.

5. Open Excel and select the Developer Tab.

6. Select the Visual Basic icon.

7. To import the IDAutomation_UniversalGS1Font_VBA.bas, select File--Import File and navigate the VBA folder in the GS1-128 Font Package.

8. The GS1 VBA is placed in the Modules folder. It will appear as Module1.

NOTE: Only import one instance of the IDAutomation_UniversalGS1Font_VBA. If multiple IDAutomation_UniversalGS1Font_VBA files (with the same file name) are in the modules folder, an "ambiguous name error" with #NAME will occur.




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