    In a form, I would like to have a button there that when pressed will print a
    label with bar codes. The bar code label contains the information on the
    current selected record.

    Help!

    There are a number of considerations when printing barcodes.

    First you have to decide whether to go with an ActiveX control or a barcode
    font. If you decide to go with a font you have to know how to encode the
    barcode (most of them are not a simple representation of the text) but most
    importantly you have to know which barcode you are going to use.

    Do you have a sample program I can study? I am still new in MS Access.

    Do you have a sample

    You have to make the decisions first, then you can start worrying about
    samples.
