Issue Linking Label Software External Data to Access

I am not able to connect to the embedded data with label software.
Data is being displayed in the Linked window. However, there is no option to connect that data in label.

I have data in Access File - mdb format, if you don't have the ability to read an Access File, I can convert the data in other format as well.

Operating System: Win 7

Application: Barcode Label Software

The example illustrates how to display a barcode using MS Access 2013 data linked to the IDAutomation Barcode Label Software 2013 through its External Data option.

NOTE: The post assumes that a database is already created and includes data.


EXAMPLE

1. Download and install the Demo or Sale version of the Barcode Label Software (to create 2D barcodes download the Barcode Label Software Pro).



2. Open the Label Software. Create a New Label and choose Next.

8. Select the barcode with a left-click. Then right-click and choose Properties.

9. In the Barcode Properties select the Value tab. In the Value Type drop down, select External DataSource. In the Table Name drop down, select the table name.

In the Source Column option, set the field number that will become the barcode. For example, Source Column is set to 2. Therefore, the Color field will become the barcode.

Choose Apply and OK.

What part of the linking process is causing the issue? Is it the External Data dialog screen?
