Note: A new product (Native Barcode Generator for Excel) has been released since this post was resolved that offers an easier method of generating barcodes in Excel.


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.

*NOTE: Microsoft Excel may be used as a data source for the font; however, it is difficult to use 2D barcode (Data Matrix, PDF417, QR Code, and Aztec) fonts in Excel because of the encoded data's line feeds and carriage returns. Excel cannot properly handle these characters in a cell. Therefore, you receive a barcode that is not square shaped.
