IDAutomation_UniC39 not identified in VBA for Excel?

Hello!

Trying to create barcodes in Excel 2013 using Excel VBA and the Universal Barcode Fonts. Have installed the IDAutomationUniversalFont_VBA and added the IDAutomation_UniversalFont_VBA-bas file into the VBA Project. Have also installed the Excel Add-in. The latter works without problems as far as I can see and I can add Formulas in the Excel sheet to transform cell data to the bar code types available.

However, when trying to call, for example, IDAutomation_UniC39, in VBA it gives a compile error and says the sub or function is not defined.

I make the function call of IDAutomation_UniC39 from a code module in the same Project.
The samme error when making the call from ThisWorkbook in the same Project.

While making a Quick search the declared public function IDAutomation_UniC39 is found the IDAutomation_UniversalFont_VBA file inside the Project.

Not sure if it matters, but IDAutomation_UniC39 works from the add in while adding a formula in an Excel cell from the Excel sheet.

The security settings inside Excel allows pretty much Everything to Excel and VBA.

What am I missing?
How is the functions added be possible to use in VBA if they are out of scope?

Finally, the bar code type I really wanted to see was QR. Is QR included in the sold versions and excluded in demo versions?

Operating System: Win8

Application: Office2013, VBA 7.1

2016 Update:
A new product (Native Barcode Generator for Excel) has been released since this question was resolved that offers an easier method of generating barcodes in Excel.


Ensure that the function is properly used within Excel for Universal Fonts. In the post, it is written as IDAutomation_UniC39. It should be IDAutomation_Uni_C39

If you receive a Compile Error

Return to the VBA and notice the code in red.

Place ' before each line of red code to comment it out.

Return to the spreadsheet and re-enter the formula.

We have the QR Code Font and Encoder Package (demo and sale) and a 2D font that can properly display in Excel.
