Native Generator for Access solution does not work

I have produced an Access report which prints the barcode successfully using the IDAutomationVBA module and an installed font, IDAutomationSC128S DEMO. This report prints and scans fine.

The second report is a copy of the first but uses the Native Linear Barcode Generator for Microsoft Access and I have set the font to be Arial size 6. This second report prints the whole label 2 cm to the right and does not print the bar code at all, even though it is visible in the preview.

Operating System: Windows 7

Application: Microsoft Access 2013

Best Answer

The Native Generator for Access is a more complex solution than the fonts and VBA and requires a slightly different approach for each version of Access.

Check the security settings:
To enable macros to run in Access 2000 & 2003: Choose Tools - Macro - Security.
Change the security level to Medium or Low.

If this does not resolve the issue, consider using the font and VBA solution or the Barcode ActiveX solution.

To generate Code 128 barcodes in Access, we have the Code 128 Font Package and free VBA Font Encoder

We have tried the font and VBA Solution which works well. One thing I am not clear about is this: do we need to purchase a licence for it and if so please could you post the link. Thank you
