Free Barcode Fonts @ dobsonsw.com
Adding barcodes to Word can be hard, or it can be easy. This Word barcode add in elimates all the cutting and pasting of image barcodes from websites, as well as cutting and pasting from barcode fonts. In fact, this Word Barcode add in is the best of both worlds. The accuracy of a font based barcode with the ease of use of a barcode image. While you can have barcodes embedded in your text, you can also float text barcodes above your Word document and simply drag them to the location you need. This Word Barcode add in works for all versions of Word from Word 2000 through Word 2007 running on Microsoft Windows.
Interleaved 2 Of 5 only allows numbers to be encoded. If you need to encode letters or punctuation, please see the Code 128 Add In For Word.
Before starting out, please see my tutorial for Barcodes in Word and Excel.
Built on a base of the Interleaved 2 Of 5 barcode symbology, this Word Barcode Add In allows encoding of numbers only. It's fast, it's accurate, and it's inexpensive. I believe you would be hard pressed to find an equivalent product at this price anywhere.
To install, download the Word Barcode installer. Run the installer. The I2OF5 barcode font will be added to your system font directory and the Word barcode add in file will be installed in your systems Word startup folder. You must restart your computer before the fonts will be available in Word.

Go to the "Add Ins" tab and click the barcode creation menu. Then, select the menu item for either building a barcode from the selection or building a floating barcode. Or, after selecting text right click the text and select the Quick Barcode menu.

A number of options are available to make creation easier. You may set the barcode size (either standard or large) as well as how you want the caption to appear under floating barcodes.
