    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.

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

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
