How to use the Native Generator for Excel's Font Solution to produce Data Matrix Barcodes

I purchased the Native Generator for Excel Data Matrix but having an issue producing it as an image. I see there is also an option to use the product as a font. How do I do this?

Currently, I am using the function to produce a Data Matrix image.
=IDAutomation_NXLS_DataMatrix(CELL,1)


Application: Excel

Best Answer

You are correct, there is an option to use the formula and font to produce barcodes.

It will use the same formula but the second parameter must be set to 3 instead of 1.

=IDAutomation_NXLS_DataMatrix(CELL,3)


1. To install the font, right-click the IDAutomation2D XLS.ttf file and choose install.
image


2. Close and re-open Excel.

3. Format the data =IDAutomation_NXLS_DataMatrix(A1,3) - The second parameter set to 3 encodes the data as text.

The data in cell A1 is 123456789 encodes as:

AMFODOGOBNGPFMAK
AJAJHAGOMKAELAKK
ANANHMBBJDPOLOMK
AAOACAIOIOOIACEK


4. After encoding the data, follow this process to display the barcode in Excel:

a. To apply the IDAutomation2D XLS.ttf font, right click on the cell and select Format Cells:
image


b. Select the IDAutomation2D XLS.ttf font:
image


c. Select the Alignment tab and check "wrap text" under the Text Control section:
image


d. Return to the spreadsheet.
