Migrating from the Add-In to VBA References on a Shared Excel Spreadsheet


If I create a barcode formula =code128(b3) in an excel spreadsheet, everything works fine.

When I save the spreadsheet and open it on other computers that have the IDAutomation Code 128 fonts installed, the formula then shows as:

=IDAutomationExcelAddin.FontEncoder.code128(b3).

The above causes an error on other machines. If I then change the formula to =code128(b3), everything is fine.

Are there solutions?

Operating System: Windows

Application: Excel

Requirements:
• The barcode fonts and font encoder (Add-In or VBA) must be installed on every machine wanting to use that Excel spreadsheet and see scannable barcodes.
• If solely using the Add-In, it can only be used on versions of Excel prior to 2013*.

Given the above, you may want to see if shortening (as you have described) the function down will be the best-case scenario for your implementation.

*For this reason, we recommend using the VBA for all versions of Excel (2003+), which must also be installed and attached on every machine using the spreadsheet.

Most likely you have to remove the Addin from the offending machine and reboot it. Then correct the spreadsheet to the shortened (VBA) version.
