PDF417 Font and Encoder Advantage Package

Data Matrix and PDF417 barcodes can be created in a Word Mail Merge by encoding the data in Excel using the Native VBA Font Encoder; supplied with the Font and Encoder Advantage Package in Excel.

• Install the barcode fonts.
• Copy the code from the IDAutomation_Native_Datamatrix_Macro.bas or IDAutomation_Native_PDF417_Macro.bas and place it into a module.

PDF417 Example:
=IDAutomation_PDF417(CELL,2,4,0,0,1)

• After the data is encoded in Excel, a mail merge must be performed. After the fields are merged, apply the font to the merged field.
