Microsoft Access 64 bit crashes with ActiveX Barcode Control


Hi, I just purchased the ActiveX Barcode Control & DLL, I installed the program and added an ActiveX barcode object to a Microsoft Access 2019 (64-bit) report. Once I hit Preview to open the report, Microsoft Access crashed. Anytime I try to open this report or try to go into Design mode Microsoft Access crashes. Any suggestions? Maybe it is a 64-bit problem?

Operating System: Windows 10 professional 64 bit

Application: Microsoft Access 2019 64 bit

Hello, Unfortunately, Microsoft deprecated the ActiveX component a few years ago, and it cannot be used in any version of Access greater than 2010 as per the information here: Access Compatibility under the section for Microsoft Access.

The replacement product for the ActiveX control is our Native Barcode Generator for Microsoft Access

For the Native Barcode Generator for Microsoft Access you can add the barcodes to different sections, but you will need to change the Code that you add to the Code Builder in Step 13 of the Native Barcode Generator for Microsoft Access User Manual

Private Sub Detail_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
result = IDAutomation_NatG_C128(txtIDAutomationBC1, Me)
End Sub

You would change the above in bold to the name of the section where the barcode will appear for example "Page Header" or "Report Header" instead of "Detail" and you may have to use "Print" instead of "Format"

For example:

Private Sub PageHeader_Print(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)
result = IDAutomation_NatG_C128(txtIDAutomationBC1, Me)
End Sub

Thank you for the repy. I looked at the product you suggested and it said that you have to add the code to the details section. Does that mean I can't do that same thing in the header section of a report?
We are printing a packing list and want to barcode to appear at the top of the report in code 39. Do you think this will work?
